Here’s the background story….
‘Tis the season of goodwill (nearly) and this year I’ve been inspired to create something I’ve never done before, something new and wonderful that showcases all my amazing products. I’m creating LJ’s Ultimate Advent Treat, 24 of my wonderful organic handmade products all packaged up into a very special advent calendar.
What is it?
A very talented local lady is working right now on creating 24 handmade, individually numbered stockings, which will make up the advent calendar, just the right size to hold petite versions of all my beautiful products. So whoever ends up with this bespoke advent calendar will have a little organic beauty treat to wake up to throughout the whole of December.
Although I would love to create hundreds, it wouldn’t allow me to concentrate on making all the regular products my lovely customers need. So, I thought I would make one very special one and use it to raise some much needed funds for charities I feel very passionate about.
Charities I love: which to choose?
1. MNDA: one of my best friends died of this appalling disease when she was just 38. Five people in the UK die from Motor Neurone Disease every day and 50% of people die within a year of diagnosis. There is no cure.
2. The Animal Sanctuary Wilmslow: my local charity, where we recently adopted our gorgeous guinea pig, Denzel. They are desperately short of funds and every little helps them to continue to care for abandoned animals.
After doing some polling on Facebook, the response was evenly split between raising money for MNDA and The Animal Sanctuary. A difficult choice to make, so why not raise money for both?
How do you enter?
This is the important bit, to be in with a chance of winning this wonderful, one off advent calendar, buy tickets at £2.50 each before 27th November. When you buy your ticket and make your donation YOU get to choose where the money goes to. I will also be selling tickets in my therapy rooms, so if you are having a massage or facial treatment or buying products you will also have the chance to donate. You can enter as many times as you like.
What are you waiting for?
The closing date is the 27th November and on the 28th November, the winning ticket will be drawn by an independent party and the winner announced on my website and FaceBook. I will post it out for arrival on 1st December anywhere in the UK. If you miss out on winning you can always buy yourself a little treat to help you relax in the run up to Christmas from my online shop.
