I received an email the other day from the Public Relations Consultant from the website
and she made us a very thoughtful offer. She said that their company would be willing to donate 10% of their proceeds from now until CHRISTMAS to DebRA when you place your order using the promo code: TRIPP.
Their website is FULL of thousands of personalized Christmas ornaments and pictures. Practically any theme you can imagine: Family, 1st Christmas, Occupations, Pets, Hobbies, Sports, etc. They are reasonably priced and ship worldwide!!
They also recognized Tripp and me on their blog for the website, helping us bring awareness to EB! I am going to post their link on my sidebar, so that you can easily access their website if you choose to help!
I am so grateful to them and I wanted to work hard to be able to give this company business, also raise money for DebRA... BUT ALSO... I'm going to be a little bit selfish, too (GASP). I can't help it. Here is a proposal:
My mom, Christie Zink (our superwoman advocate and supporter from Minnesota) and I, came up with what I think is a FABULOUS idea. I hope you guys will agree.
This year for Christmas, we want YOU to
"Trim Tripp's Tree."
We are going to put a Christmas Tree behind Tripp's rocking chair in the corner of our living room this year. I want to decorate it with ornaments from everyone (no matter where you are) that follows our story and prays for my little Drummer Boy. These ornaments will be something that I will TREASURE every single year, no matter what happens in the future. Something that will have SO much meaning and will be so very special to me. So I can always remember all of the support that we've had through everything.
You all know that it's hard for me to ask for something for myself- but I figured that this would be the perfect opportunity to raise money for DebRA, give business to a company that wants to help us, and also make Tripp's Christmas tree this year the most special Christmas tree in the world.
You can put your name, your state, city, or a special message to Tripp if you'd like:)
Now, you DO NOT have to buy an ornament from personalizedfree.com if you do not want to. You can order from anywhere you want OR you can just make a homemade ornament!! No matter where it comes from, it will be SO special to us!
I can't wait to share pictures of our tree with you all this year!!
If you want to join in the ornament fun, you can mail them to us at:
18669 Sisters Road
Ponchatoula, LA 70454
Ok, so I hope no one thinks I'm being pushy for asking this- I mean, you guys have already gone above and beyond for us in SO many ways. I just wanted to throw this idea out there, in case anyone wanted to participate- and Christie has also created a Facebook page event called "Trimming Tripp's Tree."
You can visit the page HERE.
We love you all!
Thank you again for being the best support team and prayer warriors we could EVER ask for:)
