Thursday, November 12, 2009 7 Post-It Notes
One charity that is near and dear to me is the Make-A-Wish Organization. The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. So when I found out that Things Remembered is offering Limited Make-A-Wish Collectibles for 2009 and they will donate $2 for every purchase, I wanted to help spread that message! So add extra meaning to gifts this season with a gift that gives twice. Things Remembered is marking its 12-year sponsorship of the Make-A-Wish Organization. The Make-A-Wish Foundation with five exclusive personalized gifts that benefit the Foundation, including new jewelry and a seasonal teddy bear. For each custom-designed, limited-edition item sold, Things Remembered will donate $2 to support the children’s wish-granting organization.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation-themed gifts became a tradition at Things Remembered in 1998, one year after Elysia, a seriously ill teen, wished to give her family and friends personalized gifts saying, “Thank you, I love you, and always remember me.” Her wish has grown into an ongoing program that has raised almost $5.7 million and helped grant the wishes of more than 790 children.
Among the new engravable Things Remembered Make-A-Wish gifts:
• Max the Bear – Max, a fluffy white teddy bear, holds a delicate water globe in his paws with a message that reads “Wishes from the Heart.” A story card explains how Max brings and shares wishes with others, offering a fitting gift for adults and a fun way to help children understand and appreciate charitable giving. An engraving plate on the water globe offers room to add a special wish for the recipient.
• Stunning Jewelry – For the first time, Things Remembered is offering jewelry as part of its Make-A-Wish Organization. The Make-A-Wish program. A dazzling heart-shaped swing charm is the focal point of the new Make-A-Wish Organization. The Make-A-Wish necklace. A delicate, crystal-encrusted cut-out heart swings over a silver-plated engravable heart charm to share a special wish. A unique Make-A-Wish Organization. The Make-A-Wish bracelet features tiny, clustered silver stars in lieu of a traditional chain, along with an engravable crystal star charm. Each piece comes in a special silver keepsake box that can be personalized with a well-wish or season’s greeting for the recipient.I received this and it is simply breathtaking. There are no other words to describe how beautiful this is.
• Exclusive Ornaments – Things Remembered has expanded its Make-A-Wish Organization. The Make-A-Wish collectors ornaments with a new heart and limited-edition angel design. The first limited-edition ornament offered by the retailer, the angel ornament holds a string of charms that reads “faith, hope, love, joy,” along with an engravable heart charm. On a felt hanger, the heart ornament dazzles thanks to a detailed design of faceted glass stones and crystals. Things Remembered also introduces the North Star ornament, which incorporates the hope of the iconic Make-A-Wish Organization. The Make-A-Wish star and features beautiful faceted glass stones and crystals. Each ornament in the collection can be engraved with a family name or special holiday reflection.
