October – Breast Cancer Awareness UPDATE

As you may remember, in October I said that I would donate 50p for every purchase from my etsy shops (clairebearshop and handmadebyclairebear) to Breast Cancer Care to support their work.

I have since paid in the money I raised through this (all £1.50 of it), and this is the lovely e-mail I got in return:

In case you can’t quite read it, this is what it says:

______________________________________________________________________________________

Please pass on our thanks to everyone who helped make your fundraising a success, we are very grateful for their kindness in supporting your fundraising activities.

Thank you to those who bought from my shops during October, thank you and I hope that you are happy with your purchases.

I intend to do this again next year, hopefully I will raise more as this is a cause that is close to my heart.

As many of you will know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and I have decided to donate 50p from every item purchased from and paid for either of my Etsy shops (Handmade by Claire Bear and Claire Bear Shop) for the whole month.

I have updated my shops with a lot of new stock today, and although it is the 3rd of October already, I will be backdating the 50p per item donation to cover all items already purchased this month.

You wont notice any increase in prices, because there aren’t any. My prices are staying the same, throughout October: I’m the one making the donation.

Having said that, if you want to make a donation, here is the link to donate  online

Happy buying
