I will be donating 100% of the proceeds on all retail orders placed today thru Sunday, 3/20 at midnight to Japanese relief. The donation will be made to Samaritan's Purse (an organization headed by Rev. Franklin Graham) who is working with Japanese churches in getting the earthquake and tsunami ravished areas the supplies they desperately need. If each of my customers just spent $31 we would raise close to $3,000!!! Just think of how much aid that would provide these people who are in such desperate need.
You can still take advantage of the customer special which is spend $31 and get a purse 1/2 off. The proceeds from the 1/2 off item would go towards the fundraiser as well.
Thank you in advance for your support. If you are not able to place an order all I ask is that you remember the people of Japan in your prayers. Also, feel free to share this event with your friends and family.
You can place your order online line by following this link to the Bags for Japan fundraiser: http://www.mythirtyone.com/shop/catalog.aspx?eventId=E587801&from=DIRECTLINK or you can call or email me directly with your order.
Keep in mind some upcoming events that may make this a perfect time to do some gift shopping while giving back...Easter (our thermal totes, all in organizers and square utility totes make really cute Easter baskets), Mother's Day, Teacher Appreciation, Graduation, Administrative Professionals Day, Birthday, Baby or Wedding Shower or any other occasion where you need the perfect personalized gift!

Stacy has set up a Facebook event page with more information and directions on how to contact her. I have purchased a few orders through Thirty-One and have been very, very pleased with the quality, styles, and customer service. If you are in the Knoxville area and are able to participate, please consider doing so. As she said, feel free to share the information with friends and family who might also be interested.
