Holiday Gift Guide 2011


Gotta handmade shop?

Gearing up for the holidays?

Want to give back?

I’m hosting a Holiday Gift Guide right here at Life Rearranged…except, as you can imagine, mine’s a little different.

Last year, our big, huge, amazing fundraiser of the year was for Cliff’s adoption fund and we were able to raise just under $9,500 in a very grassroots way!

$5 at a time, I watched that tally climb up and up and up!

Best of all, Cliff is now Joshua and home with his forever family since July!!!

Isn’t that AMAZING?!

This year, we’ll be doing it again for another sweet face at Reece’s Rainbow and I thought we’d take a multi-pronged approach this time.

Everyone’s gonna be shopping for Christmas right?

And there’s lots of handmade shops out there with awesome, unique items perfect for gift giving…so let’s join the two and raise some money for a sweet face at the same time!!!

The Gift Guide will run from December 3-9.

What does that mean?

For those of you who need to shop: consider waiting on that run to the mall, and see if there might be a gift or two (or all!) amid the great shops participating in the Gift Guide.  Besides, it’ll be cute stuff that’s unique and it’ll show up on your door.  Perfection.

For shop owners, here are the deets:

  • Inclusion in the Gift Guide is “free”.
  • You’ll get sidebar ad space for the entire month of December.
  • One exclusive post letting readers know about YOUR product.
  • Lots of tweeting, facebooking, pinning and skywriting about your shop.  (kidding on the skywriting)

Here’s the “catch”:

A portion of the proceeds from your sales is committed to being donated to our fundraiser.  Don’t be shy, it’s tax deductible!

I want this to be easy and workable, so you get to pick how many days, which days, and the percentage you want to donate.  Each shop will be different.

If you are interested in participating, please email me at jeannett {at} with a link to your shop and the following sentence filled in:

I’d love to commit to donating a portion of proceeds to the Life Rearranged fundraiser!  I’ll donate ___% of sales during _______ (insert dates between Dec. 3-Dec. 9). 

(Remember, you can do one day, three days, or all of them!)

For the rest of you, hold off on some of that shopping and help our shops give back!!!

I'm a mom to four. A wife to one. I believe in story. I love telling you about mine and would love to hear yours. There's really no sense in wasting our suffering and not sharing in each other's joy. We're all in this together...even if it doesn't always feel like it.
