We also have some amazing and generous people that have donated items for giveaways, so we want to do some more giveaways.
You guys have no idea what a blessing you are to us and to 2kute. When she told her husband, he stood and stared at her to try to understand what she was saying. I mean he was in shock that people who we don't even know have been so kind and generous. Then he said, "what a blessing!" He was so happy.
Then when we told 2kute's parents, they didn't say anything, they were speechless and cried.
Again, we are so thankful for each and every one of you!!! You are AWESOME!!!
Don't forget we are still doing the Double Dipped Sweets Giveaway!!!
Can you believe that in 1 week we've almost hit our goal!
Viv and I both just called Rose and she is shaking and crying with joy! She is beside herself and we are so excited!
Keep in mind, $2000 was the low-end of the spectrum and the air conditioning man told us that it could be more than that, but we NEVER thought we'd raise this much for her!
Help us hit (or surpass our goal) by entering the giveaway listed below, that would be absolutely fantastic! And if our mysterious donor would convo Viv or I on etsy so that we can help Rose say thank you, we'd be ecstatic about that, too!

You could win......
We will host the giveaway on this blog, we'll pick the winner - all you have to do is ship the item to the winner!
What we plan to do is promote the giveaway and then have people enter it by donating money. For each $3 a person donates, it will count as an entry. Then we will do a drawing and a lucky person wins!
Let us know!!! :)

Thank you guys for all your love and support for 2kute!!!

I've had a number of people offer fundraising suggestions, which is awesome! I absolutely love suggestions, so if you have one, please feel free to get in touch with me or Viv at either of our shops, facebook or even just leave a comment here.
One of our favorite suggestions thus far is that a number of you mentioned you'd like to donate a portion of your sales or the profit from a particular item to Rose. We wouldn't mind this in the least! If you'd like to make your donation this way, I absolutely encourage you to and I will feature anyone who tells me that they'd like to do this on our team blog! Just leave a comment with the link(s) to the item(s) that you'd like to donate some profits from and let me know how much of the profit you'd be donating and Viv or I will feature it in a blog post!
Thanks again everyone,

Rose said to us,
I just became speechless when I saw the blog and cried like a baby :)But don't worry, it was definitely a good cry!
I just got overwhelmed when I saw so many good friends coming and donating ya
know, and pimping. That was awesome.
So lets get out there and keep trying to get her this air conditioner!

Rose, 2kute was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia several years ago and has been suffering very badly because of it.
She lives in Florida and the heat causes her fibro to flare up worse than usual. Some days it's so painful that even laying in bed hurts her. Ideally, she would like to move to a cooler climate, but unfortunately she cannot afford that as the state of Florida has denied her disability claim and she can't work due to her illness.
Her husband makes what he can, but it's barely enough to cover her medications and treatments - which the doctors have told her she has reached the end to, there is nothing else left for her to try.
Now, of all things, her central air has broken and is beyond repair. No one in the family can afford to buy her a new unit, but without it she may very well die. And what's more is that when winter finally does roll along, they will have no heater either.
We are looking to see if anyone out there would be willing to help purchase her a new unit. We have already tried looking for governmental support, but to no avail, so any assistance would be great!
