Cancer Care Project September 30 2015

Good evening everyone! We wanted to share with you a little bit of what we have been working on and what you can look forward to in the month of October. 

As most of you know, we try to do several charity projects each year here at Pretty & Polished. Well, as October is Breast Cancer Awareness month we have decided to start a new project. Hopefully one that can continue to grow for as long as we are around to supply you with beautiful polish. You will see on our drop down polish menu that we have a "Charity" section. Each month we will place items into this category and the profits from those items will go towards helping us with our Cancer Care Packages, any extra products or profits will go to the Little Red Door Cancer Services.

What is a Cancer Care Package you ask? Well, we have decided to work with Little Red Door Cancer Services as well as the Oncology Unit at Ball Memorial Hospital to make and provide special packages for their patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiation. We have made boxes that we have packed with Pretty & Polished products as well as products donated by our friends, family, and customers and supporters just like you! If you would like to donate in any way we will put the information at the bottom of this post so that you may do so. 

We would like to not only continue to provide these care packages locally but we want to branch out and go as far as we can with it. If that means that we simply inspire someone to do this in their hometown we hope we can! YOU can do this! 

Something else we are doing to make this more fun for our customers, each month when you purchase something from our Charity section we will send you a ticket. We will keep the other half and write your information on it. On the first of every month we will pull a ticket out of our box and email the winner. That winner will win a prize pack! Each month the prize will be different. 

We want you to know that we will be selling some Cancer Care Packages on our website. The packages for sale will be slightly different from the ones we are handing out for free. We will not be using any donated products in the ones for sale online. They will be packed with items we have sourced ourselves. We want to give you the opportunity to send one to someone you know who has gone through chemo or radiation. The profits from these boxes will go directly back into the Cancer Care Package program. They will be limited in quantity so please be patient with us as we attempt to make this program work.

 

If you would like to donate to the Pretty & Polished Cancer Care Package Program please send your donations to the following address along with your name, address, and email. We will be sending each donor a coupon code for a free nail polish ($8.50 value).
