Yesterday was the very first day of holiday cheer. This is the second annual 25 Days of Holiday Cheer and I am just as excited as the first. The theme for this year is:
All the Best Heroes are Ordinary People who make themselves Extraordinary.
This we have 30 nominees so it will be extended by 5 extra days because I wanted to recognize everyone! The more we can do the better and it all came together this year because of all the fabulous people who supported my crazy Holiday Cheer idea.
Alyssa Wagner, our Stella & Dot consultant and my dear friend made sure that she donated enough commissions to pay for the sales tax on all of our gift orders.
Tina Ramirez from thirty-one and Mama Luvs donated several of her Mama Luvs products to all the people who purchased thirty-one bags this year.
The Krafty B, otherwise known as Bettina Kraft, donated one of her beautiful scarves as one of our gifts this year.
Finally, I cannot begin to thank all those who donated money, frames, time, and support to help make this all a reality this year. Thank you all so much for helping to spread a little extra cheer this holiday season. Each of our recipients will be so grateful.
Our first nominee was nominated by Kathleen from Utah. She wanted to nominate her cousin Mary Ellen because, “she is so dedicated, has so much love and patience while giving her mom the best of care. She is one of my heroes and I admire her for being such a wonderful caregiver.”
Mary Ellen cares for her mom and is a resident of Las Vegas, Nevada. She also spends time helping in the community. Recently she helped two council members run food drives for local food cupboards. This is a cause near and dear to her heart.
Mary Ellen is a life long Girl Scout and worked with youth leadership in the Las Vegas Community for several years.
This gift came at a great time as the last couple of weeks have been especially trying with her mom as she has had many sleepless nights.
Glad we could help deliver some extra holiday cheer.
Happy December and Happy 25 (30) Days of Holiday Cheer –
Michelle and a circle of women who care
