Underwear for you and underwear for someone in your hometown!
This November and December, I'll be matching every purchase from my Etsy and korijock.com shops by sending a new pair of Upitees to a women's shelter in your hometown/region for every pair you purchase.
I'm super excited to have kicked off with a house party in Portland this weekend (more on that next week!)- I'll be sending 5 pairs of undies that way later this year or early next :)
It all started last November when I read a blog post from Seattle City Council member Sally Bagshaw about women's shelters really needing new underwear at this time of year.
It's not about ending homelessness or domestic violence, but it is about giving back and making something special for someone special. Sharing my talents how I can while making an impact on an individual level in your hometown feels like a great way to celebrate the holidays.
All those holidays. :)
So, after your purchase I'll follow up to see if there's a special organization you'd like me to send the donation to in your name (I'll cc you on letter I send them). If not, I'll do some research, and either way your purchase will ensure that another special woman in your area also receives a pair of Upitees this winter. What do you think? Let's chat in the comments section below. xoxo
P.S. I know some of you will be shopping next weekend after Thanksgiving. If that's your thing and you're thinking about giving the gift of superfun undies, please use the coupon code BizzieSmalls on Small Business Saturday (11.24.12) to get free shipping on your order in my Etsy shop :)
