As you, my faithful readers, know, the past week has been a crazy, crazy, crazy one in Jennaland! I'm happy to report that last week's fundraiser supporting Adoption Resources of Wisconsin was a hit - we had an excellent time, celebrated with old friends and new and raised a great big ole chunk of money to support the organization. If you were one of the folks who participated in - or even checked out - the online auction we were hosting as part of the event, I want to say thank you. You rock. :)
In the midst of the craziness, I did manage to read two books and start a third. (See? I never stop with the reading!) Have you all done anything exciting or read anything outstanding in the past week?
Now, I want to share something that's going on that's really pretty stinkin' special. My home is decorated with several pieces of art that have been curated (not just framed, it's better than that!) by my friends at Carey Frameworks, a Fond du Lac-based business. Now, I know that Black Friday is coming up, as well as Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. And my friends at Carey Frameworks have made a truly wonderful offer benefiting Adoption Resources of Wisconsin: 10% of EVERY sale made online from now through Christmas is to be donated to ARW. Every sale! No coupons, no codes, just shop online, make your purchases and you are helping to not only support a local small business, but also support the work of a local charity! But wait! There's more! (I'm getting out my infomercial voice here.) There's a 40% sale going on at the same time! So, you can get some beautiful and unique products and gifts, save 40% and give to charity! It's a win-win-win! (I'm overusing the exclamation points, huh? But I'm excited! I can't help it!)
So, that's my huge, big, exciting news. I hope you take a moment to check out Carey Frameworks and their quality products, shop small, shop local, get a great deal and give back a little, too.
