New ac unit is here!

First and for most, thank you so much to everyone who prayed and donated for 2kute. Words cannot express how grateful we all are for your willingness to give! We are all still in a bit of awe and shock at all the donations, including a very sizeable one who brought us to our goal so quickly! You all have been such an incredible blessing in our lives, more than you will ever know! This blog and this new ac is a true testimony of how awesome God is!
Here are some pictures of the old and new units!
Thank you so much!!!!

Changes

As you can see we did change the goal from the $2000. After talking to 2kute we realized she may need a bit more for some wiggle room with the repair man. Also, if there is any left over from getting the new unit, she will use that toward her electric bill which she is behind on.

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!!!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

Due to a VERY generous donation, we've hit $1947!!
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!

Lets Do Giveaways

So we were given the idea of doing giveaways to help 2kute! We need your help! If any of you are interested in donating an item for the giveaways to help 2kute, please contact Vivian or Dani.

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!!! :)

We're Getting There!!

We've hit $102 collected so far! Thanks so much to everyone who's donated already and to those of you who have helped out by purchasing something from Rose! I'm going to add the profits from those sales to our tally as soon as she wakes up and tells me how much to add. So, actually, we've raised more than $102.

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,
Danielle

The Cat is Out of the Bag!

Rose (2kute/2kutekards) was hanging around twitter yesterday and it seems she came across some people pimping her team. She thought someone was pretending to be her and trying to rip people off, so she clicked the link and to her surprise she found this blog! Of course, she couldn't believe it when she saw it and she went on to call Viv and I sneaky. haha.

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!

Thanks again!
Danielle
