WOW!!!! The moment everyone was waiting for. I hope the wait was worth it. Serendipity is AMAZING and I am excited to see what everyone’s favorites are. I know you have read over and over that Serendipity is 435’s favorite Collection to date. I think I am going to jump on the band wagon as well and say the same. I just don’t see how those girls can beat this collection come Fall. Maybe because every time I see the light teal/blue and red I am reminded of my house and all the work I did last summer. I bought my first house a year ago this past October and last summer decided to give it a make-over. After weeks of deciding on colors I decided on this. How ironic that Serendipity happened to be almost the same exact color scheme.
However, today’s post is about something I am even more excited about. I feel like a little school girl when the “Habitat” subject comes up. I have so much love for them and the things they do and feel so honored to be organizing some events in order to reach our goal of $30,000. Last Year, with all of your help, we were able to raise nearly $13,000. That is OUTSTANDING and we are so grateful. We could not have done it without all of your support and I know this year will be even more successful. All of these donations went to building the home for Trinell and her three children. She is so sweet and appreciative and on top of that one of the hardest workers on the job site. We are all excited to meet the recipient of this years Women Build I am sure she is just the same. Below is Trinell and her children on the day of her dedication. I can only imagine what that day meant to her.
This year we will be hosting an online auction in March and trust me you will not want to miss it. There are so many cute items from different vendors that will be available. I won’t spoil it for you today, but I can say that there is a wide range of items that are all AMAZING. Thank you to those of you who have donated items so far. Your generosity is heart warming. Which brings me to my next subject.
We are also hoping to gather about 50 photographers who are willing to donate a session to go up for auction in March. In return, Matilda Jane may include your contact info in our first Matilda Jane Clothing Publication that will be mailed out in April to roughly 50,000-100,000 people. If you are interested please email me (Kayla) at email@example.com with your website. (Spaces will be limited due to the space available in the publication and not every photographer will be selected for the publication. Photographers chosen to be included in the feature will be hand-selected by MJC….more details to come.)
On top of those big announcements, Matilda Jane will also be co-sponsoring the annual Habitat Tea in April. This luncheon is their main source of funds for the Women’s Build in September and has been very successful so far. If you are in the area, we would love for you to join us. In order to attend the event, Habitat requires a $2,500 donation which includes 5 volunteer spots come September, and a table of 8 at the Tea. This year the Tea is April 21st at 2pm EST. I attended it last year and it was a blast. Children are welcome and each year they have a theme they run with. This year the theme has not been sent but with Denise’s brain behind some of the ideas you know it will be nothing short of cute. If this is something you are interested in as a company, family or friends you can contact me also and I can get you that information. We hope to see some of you there.
There will be some more details to come at a later day, I just couldn’t hold back the details that I know as of today. Told you I was excited.
Lastly, I haven’t done a give-a-way in awhile and after the conversation Lynette just had with Kiara we thought today would be the perfect time. This one will be hard so the winner will win Lynette’s two Favorite pieces from Serendipity.
What is Lynette’s one obsession/hobby she partakes in every year?
