Just in time for Christmas! Thanks to our amazing customers we’ve been able to donate another 200 lip balms to Packages from Home www.packagesfromhome.org by the Christmas delivery date cut-off. That makes a total of 500 lip balms donated since we started the program in September, what a huge success! If you remember we pledged to donate one of our natural lip balms for every order placed both through our website and at our various farmers market locations. Since our program has been such a resounding success we plan to continue it into 2012!

Packages from Home ships thousands of care packages to active duty US military service personnel who are serving overseas in hazardous and combat areas. These packages include all sorts of great goodies like candy, snacks, books, new underwear and now our great lip balms. All you have to do is read some of the thank you letters from those who have received these care packages to realize how much they mean to our troops. Do you know any active duty military who would like to receive a care package? If so, you can submit their names at the following link and they will be included in the recipient list http://packagesfromhome.org/request-a-package . Would you like to do more for this great organization? Check out the Packages from Home website where they have numerous ways to donate.

Thanks so much again for all your support. We really couldn’t have done it without you! Hopefully the contribution will help brighten the holidays for those who are fighting so that we can enjoy ours.
