Pass It Forward! No Harm In Self Promotion, Right?

Hello! I have been meaning to write for a while and have been so distracted with my children’s end of school year activities, play dates, socials, pretty much everything that happens right before the insanity of summer!

Since I last wrote, I participated in this year’s Fairfield Memorial Parade, I was invited as one of the four Cancer victims to ride on the CT Challenge float – it was truly an honour and I had a blast! I have never ridden in a parade before, let alone got on a float! My shirt may have been a bit tight, but the crowd got the gist and they loved us all! Huge success! Thank you Jeff, Karen, and Tamara at CT Challenge for including me!

Because I am back in the United States, I have had to back track a little and get new local doctors like an new General Internest, OBGYN, ENT, Breast Surgeons, etc…the list is endless. One of these Doctors is Dr Blair who has put me in touch with The Norma F Phriem Care Center, here in Connecticut, a place I have been eager to get to since I arrived. I told the Doctor about The Pink Pom-Pom Project and the programmes within the Project, and she said it was important I call and introduce myself.

And now as of late, I have been working out my situation with my shop. It has been put on hold as the building itself was not ‘ZONED’ properly, did not have the correct paperwork filed for parking, and is not up to Fire code. It’s a long list of items that should have been cleared by both the Landlord and the Estate Agents involved. A tedious matter, however, I am sure it will be resolved shortly. Once we open, I am certain it will be fabulous and a lovely place to go to!

However, now comes the begging part! In order for me to jump start my business in the United States, I NEED YOUR HELP! Hiring a marketing company is out of my reach at the moment and relying completely on family and friends is daunting, especially when you bombard them with e-mails, FB alerts, Tweets, every other day!!!!

But…YOU can help! YOU can help pass the word through Facebook by ‘Like’-ing my Posts, Tweeting about The Pink Pom-Pom Project and generally passing the word on to other websites i.e. Daily Candy about our new projects and events. The Pink Pom-Pom Project is a community project involving cancer victims, their friends and families, along with the public to introduce crafting as a form of therapy. It’s a crafting for cancer therapy initiative, if you will. Here are the websites we would like passed along – anything and all recognition is greatly appreciated!

AND 25% of all sales from a little square LLC for directly to supporting The Pink Pom-Pom Project‘s community projects. We provide crafting supplies, materials, tools and volunteers to teach the public unique crafting techniques – it’s a win win situation!

SO PLEASE HELP US MAKE A DIFFERENCE AND BECOME A HOUSEHOLD NAME!

Pass these forward! Click on the icons and go from there! THANK YOU!
