Giving From a Place of Gratitude

As we enter into the season of reflection, giving thanks, and celebration (yes, Christmas is right around the corner!) I've been thinking about how this year could look different. Our Circle of Angels Project has grown in spades since we launched in March. I'm so grateful for all the support we've had with it. Truly - there are no words to describe how much it means to us! So from this place of gratitude, I've been asking myself how we could give even more. How could we up the ante with our pay-it-forward project? Wouldn't it be amazing if we touched a few hundred people's lives this season with our little angels and all that they stand for? I hope you'll be a part of the Circle's efforts - and to make it a little easier, I'm pleased to announce a couple of new options for purchasing the angels.

First of all, we no have a "Pay-it-Forward" project where for $15 (small angels) or $18 (large angels), you will receive one angel for you, and an identical one will be handed out to someone else in need. We'll make an event out of it and sometime in December, we will go out and distribute these special pay-it-foraward angels to people who might need a lift. We are open to suggestions as to where we should hand them out...maybe at local hospice units? To cancer patients? Kids at the local Children's Hospital? Homeless shelters? Other ideas? It would be magical to have a hundred to hand out and we will photograph/video the hand outs to then share the story back with all our supporters. 

Our section new option is a complete angel ornament set - just in time for Christmas. We will have both the large and small angels already hung and packed to go - 12 different colors for the large size ($144) and 11 different colors for the small size ($110). They are vibrant, sparkly, and loaded with special meaning. I can't think of a better Christmas gift for a loved on. All proceeds (as with ALL our angel sales)...which is approximately half of the cost...are donated to Angels Anonymous, The Alberta Cancer Foundation, and the Lupus Society of Alberta. Don't miss out on this limited collection and we may run out quickly - so order early! 

Sending light and love to you all,

K
