Paper Pumpkin is going Pink!

To show their support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Stampin' Up! is going PINK . . . or at least their October boxes are! They will be making a donation to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) and will donate:
  • $1 for every active Paper Pumpkin subscriber.
  • Plus, an additional $1 for every new subscriber.
Together, we will make a difference!   If you are already a subscriber your October kit will automatically be included in this donation total, so thank you in advance for keeping your subscription active and helping SU in their donation to BCRF.

If you have not subscribed and would like to try it out, this would be a great time to do so.  Not only will you get a great kit delivered to your door, but you will also help SU in their support of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Here's how you can help: 
  1. Subscribe! If you're new to Paper Pumpkin, use the link in the left column of my blog to get started or click here. Note - if you have a relationship with another demonstrator you can ask that demonstrator for their link. Your first kit will arrive in a limited-edition pink box that you'll want to hold onto forever-and Stampin' Up! will  donate $2 because you're new!
  2. Stay active if you're a subscriber so they can donate $1 for you. Only those who receive the October shipment will be counted for the donation.
  3. Spread the word! Help Stampin' Up!  get as many new subscribers as possible. Every current subscriber adds $1 and for new subscribers it's doubled, so let's get the word out and raise as much as possible.
Remember, those who get the October kit will not only be donating to a good cause, but they will also get a one-time only, pretty pink Paper Pumpkin box! No one will want to miss it. Promise.
More About BCRF

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) advances the world's most promising research to eradicate breast cancer. Founded by Evelyn H. Lauder in 1993, BCRF has raised more than $550 million to fuel discoveries in tumor biology, genetics, prevention, treatment, survivorship and metastasis, making it one of the largest non-governmental funders of breast cancer research in the world. This year BCRF has invested $58.6 million in research, to support over 235 researchers at leading medical institutions across six continents, including $11.6 million to the international Evelyn H. Lauder Founder's Fund focused on metastasis. By spending 91 cents of every dollar on research and public awareness programs, BCRF remains one of the nation's most fiscally responsible nonprofits. BCRF is the only breast cancer organization with an "A+" from CharityWatch, and has been awarded Charity Navigator's highest rating of four stars 13 times since 2002.

Additional Details: 
  • New subscribers are those who signed up between September 11 and October 10, 2015 and have not been a Paper Pumpkin subscriber at any time in the past. 
  • All funds will be donated in US dollars.
  • Mini spoiler alert! The October project inside the pink box is just as awesome as always, but we should probably let you know that it is not a pink project.
  • Funds will be donated based on number of subscribers instead of boxes shipped. But, if you want more than one pink box, you can always increase your subscription quantity by logging into your account at before October 10.
If you want to see what the kits that shipped this month contain here are a few pictures below courtesy of Stampin' Up! demonstrator Debra Cunningham who already received her kit.  Mine hopefully comes today.

I love this kit.  I know I will be ordering more once the past kits are available.  What a great gift idea for classroom gifts, party favors, or table favors.  To make this type of project on my own without the help of a kit where all of the products are included would take a long time.  With the kit and all the products right there for you it will be so much easier to create.  

If you have any questions about Paper Pumpkin please send me an e-mail or leave a comment below.  Remember, you can try it for one month or get prepaid subscriptions.  

Here is more information about Paper Pumpkin.

What is Paper Pumpkin?

I come to your door each month (a fully decked-out creativity carriage). I'll help you to escape your life with some paper fun.
I come in a sweet box, but you'll really love what you find on the inside:
All the stamps, ink, paper, and accessories to create pinable projects. Create stuff like cards, journals, décor, and more!

  • Each month Stampin' Up!  sends you a unique, surprise kit with a project-cards, journals, décor, and more! (They have even color-coordinated, measured, and cut everything for you!)
  • Each kit includes stamps, ink, paper, and accessories-everything but adhesive.
  • Each kit gives you  30-minute creativity escape.
  • Your Paper Pumpkin should arrive on or around the 15th of the month. 
  • You need to sign up for a kit by the 10th of the month to get that month's kit. If you sign up on the 11th of the month, your first kit will come the next month. (Let's say you sign up on August 10th, your kit will be sent around August 15th. If you sign up on August 11th, your first kit around will arrive around September 15th.)
  • A Paper Pumpkin membership is $19.95 per month (and shipping is included!)  There's no commitment, you can cancel your monthly Paper Pumpkin at anytime. You can also skip a month if you want.
