Whether you're getting a head start on your holiday shopping or just a fan of supporting amazing small businesses and good causes... we have some awesome opportunities to share!
We are so excited to be partnering with three awesome small businesses run by moms with a passion for giving back. Each of these amazing businesses are currently offering special custom made products or services that will not only benefit the buyer but also the children and families that Foster Village serves.
Please take a look at each of these limited time offers from some businesses you need to know about...
At Farmgirl Paints Etsy shop you will find amazing one-of-kind leather cuff bracelets, made from up-cycled belts and customized with hand stamped words of your choice. I have been a huge fan of this shop for years and these cuffs are by far my favorite and most complimented accessory. And through October 16, Farmgirl Paints will be donating a portion of their sales to Foster Village! This is a win-win, friends. And they're currently offering 15% off using code "chrystal15". The shop will be closing for the rest of this year on October 16th, so this is a great time to get that jump start on your holiday shopping! Check out their Etsy page to see all of the design options.
I first fell in love with Alpine Baby Co. when our daughter was still toddling around and Chelsi sent us some of the cutest, comfiest little leggings that I'd ever seen. They are a business that strives to create sustainable, ethical clothing to the new babes and mini-adventurers in life. All of their clothing is handmade with American made materials. High quality, comfort, and style... the trifecta! Through October 12th, Alpine baby Co. is having a 'Get One, Give One' sale and Foster Village is the lucky recipient! They've designed an exclusive "it takes a village" legging for children and with every sale, Alpine Baby Co. will donate another pair for Foster Village to include in our Welcome Packs for children in foster care. This is a great opportunity to support an awesome business and give back to the community at the same time! Order through their website before the sale ends on October 12th!
And after checking those things off your shopping list, here's a great opportunity to get your holiday family photos squared away too... Tricia Dunlap is a talented Austin area photographer and she has a huge heart for the mission of Foster Village. She approached us with the idea of "People in Pajamas", a fun and creative way to capture families in their comfort zone without the stress and bribery required in typical family photo shoots. And the best part is, with every "People in Pajamas" photo shoot booked with her, she's donating $50 to Foster Village to purchase new pajamas for children entering foster care. You would not believe how excited these precious kids get about new pajamas! Your family gets fun, no-stress photos together in the comfort of your own home, and children coming from hard places will be blessed with cozy new jammies of their very own. Tricia is offering these 20 minute sessions for $250 ($50 goes straight to Foster Village!) and it will include 10 edited digital files within two weeks of your session. What a fun and smart way to mix it up with holiday photos! Check out Tricia's website for more details.
We are so very thankful and inspired by these small business with a desire to give back! Let's show them our support, Village!
