Over $10,000 - Thank You!
Our first order for 2011 ornaments came in on Nov. 21 from Pacific Palisades, CA and our last order came in yesterday from Lake Clear, NY. This year’s holiday campaign sold between 500-600 ornaments and will yield over $10,000 for Rett research funding. After the holidays, we will take a closer look at the tally and announce a more accurate number. A quick review of our logs shows we processed orders from 32 States, Washington D.C., the UK and Canada. We received more orders from Canada this year than ever before (thank you, Alberta and Ontario!) Many thanks to our friends Amy, Chris, Claire, and Mark for giving up a Sunday to build hundreds of ornament and shipping boxes. Most of all, thank you to everyone for ordering and for sending so many ornaments as gifts. Your generosity is helping to reverse Rett syndrome. Thanks!
