Sign up!

Pink Christmas Sign ups have begun. Sign ups will be until July 31st.

This year Pink Christmas will be sponsoring a entire family - they are amazing. They have immigrated to Washington D.C. from Africa and are beginning their new life. They have 4 amazing children. Ages 12, 8, 2 and just a few months old. The sweet mother just had twins but one passed away and the other little boy is still in the hospital weighing just a few pounds. They need everything that you could think of to begin a new life in a new home. All the money will go to helping them get the necessities to do just that.

Here is how it works.
  • Pink Christmas is a $15.00 donation. All proceeds will go to our Pink Christmas Family. (over the next few months you will have a chance to get to know them better)
  • To sign up you must leave a comment on this post and then send an email to apinkchristmas@yahoo.com {this is how I will double check to make sure I don't miss anyone}
  • By September 1st you will receive in the mail a pink envelope with the name of your Pink Christmas Girlfriend. (ssshh remember this is a secret) You will also receive a lot of goodies from all of our Pink Christmas Sponsors. (they are the only way that this is even possible)
  • Copy the below questions in your email along with your answers. This questionnaire will be sent only to your Pink Christmas girlfriend for her to start working on your gift.
  • The deadline for the completion of the project is December 1st.
  • Please plan on sending your completed gift to your girlfriend by December 5th
  • I then encourage you to send your gift wrapped gift by December 5th, (with delivery confirmation) so it will have plenty of time to arrive to its new home. Then no peeking until Christmas morning.

  • The rules of the gift giving… well there really are no rules to making the gift. But I encourage you to use your creative juices, have part or all of your gift made by hand and share a piece of you. Keep in mind there is someone out there thinking of you during this time and creating something just for you. Only give something that you too would want to receive. And Yes you can have someone make the gift for you. (many of our Pink Christmas Sponsors would love to help you with that)

Pay for your Pink Christmas $15.00 donation here!

Have fun and enjoy the process of this project and be creative and know that by doing this you are sharing a piece of you and helping a very special family this year.

Pink Christmas Sponsor
The only way that Pink Christmas is even possible is by our wonderful sponsors who pay for the mailing of your special pink envelope containing the name of your girlfriend for the year.

Sponsorship is $30.00 and will go to making Pink Christmas possible. In return I will splatter your name and how they can order your awesome products on everything I send out. I will add your links to the Pink Christmas home page.
As a sponsor you also have the chance to put anything you want in a 6x9" pink envelope that will go to every Pink Christmas Girlfriend who signs up. You can put in a business card, small sample of your product or discount card just for Pink Christmas gals.
If your company is interested you can click the pay now button to start the process of your sponsorship.
or if you know someone who is interested email me at apinkchristmas@yahoo.com
This is a great way for a cottage business to to some inexpensive advertising

and don't forget you can get a cute pink t-shirt to wear for the next few months to remind yourself of how creative and generous you are! 100% of profit of Pink Christmas gear will go to our Pink Christmas Family. Check it out here.
