Operation Shower: Party. Support. Love. {Give & Receive!}

Operation Shower - Party. Support. Love.

If you’ve followed HWTM for a while, you probably know that Operation Shower is a nonprofit organization that’s very near and dear. If you’ve never heard of them before, allow me to introduce you. :)  The video below will explain what they do better than my own words ever could.

Give a Little, Get a Lot Back

This week, Operation Shower is running a campaign called Party. Support. Love. to try and raise $5000 online. It’s a lot harder to raise $5k than you may think, and I was trying to think of what I could do to help them raise the final $2K by this weekend. $2K sounds like a lot in one chunk, but the truth is that every little bit really adds up!

The core of what we do at HWTM is design and share, so that’s what I’m turning to today in an effort to help. So… for anyone that donates $25 or more to Operation Shower via this link by midnight on November 24th – we will send you the HWTM Printable Thanksgiving Party Essentials Kit of your choice. (See details below on how to notify us of your donation.) The printable kits retail at $22, so it’s just a small gesture to help say thank you for your generosity and support of a very worthy cause. The REAL benefit of giving is – of course – how good it makes you feel! Speaking of which… please take a few minutes to check out this video… ;) Thank you!

“INK Your Holiday” Giveaway {Let’s Get Festive!}

Hostess INK Holiday Giveaway

For years we’ve been hosting giveaways from great vendors near and far… so I’m REALLY excited to be able to host the first annual “INK Your Holiday” Giveaway from our own brand new store! ;)

Last month, we launched the PRINTED party decor store we’ve been working on for the entire past year, and I still feel compelled to do a little cheer every time a new order comes in… there’s something so exciting/rewarding about getting to be a small part of the special celebrations of others, and in a way that’s super convenient for them….(everything arrives beautifully printed, die-cut, and ready to party – YAY!) And right now, we are so ready to help spread a little holiday cheer –particularly in the form of holiday party decor, holiday photo cards, gift labels & more! So we thought it would be fun to do a quick giveaway for our readers this week… quick meaning we will draw the winners at 2pm PST this Friday. I figure that will be a good way to kick off their weekend! ;) Here are the details:

GIVEAWAY PRIZES

1) THREE first prize winners: $100 Gift Card to Hostess INK + free standard shipping
2) 25 Runners Up will receive coupon codes for 50% off their entire order at Hostess INK. When discussing this idea with Sonny, I will admit I was feeling unsure about it – but then he pointed out that if you happen to be having a very large party or have gazillions of holiday cards to send out, this could be even MORE valuable than a $100 gift card! Okay, good point. :)

Here’s a quick peek at just a few of our holiday products… there are many, MANY more though! Visit our holiday section to check everything out.
