Hello Lewy Warriors!
Wow! Can you believe it? August is coming to a close and it's already time for another monthly update!
Today we wanted to take a moment and share a few amazing updates but, first and foremost, we wanted to say that we hope that each and every one of you have had a wonderful summer. We'll be taking a bit of a break from Monday, August 30th to Tuesday, September 7th to unwind and enjoy the last week of summer. During this time, we may be slow to respond to emails, messages and comments but as soon as we are back, we will have tons of stuff to share.
We're overjoyed to announce that our first run of merchandise is going to be dropping in October, around or just before Thanksgiving, and we're hoping to have two designs available for you to purchase from the jump. Pre-orders and final pricing will be going live in the first week or two of September along with some news about our first sponsor and some changes to the site. As previously stated, a percentage of money earned from every sale will be pooled and donated to Dr. Pasternak's team with the total from our Holiday Fundraiser at the end of the year. You can check out three of our upcoming designs at the bottom of this blog post. We have more in the works and have been super busy. I know that we're running a tad behind with the merchandise release but we want to make sure we're offering the best quality product and to make sure that everything goes smoothly as CLBDI expands. Let us know which one you're interested in!
We will also be sharing our new donation total sometime mid-September and starting the roll out for our fall and winter events. We're happy to share that we've sold another piece from our "Our Emotional Journey With LBD" since our last blog post as well! We know that we have taken a few months off from fundraising so we don't expect the total donation number to change that much but we are excited to see what's changed and where we stand going forward nonetheless. We're still so thankful and proud of our community.
Also, if you're in the KW and London region, keep your eye out for our new brochures! We've sent a bunch out to some of our associates and friends. We hope to get more out into the community as we move into the fall and winter. If you are a business owner/medical practice and would like to have some for your workplace (or would just like some literature yourself), shoot us an email through our contact form on the home page.
Well... It's been a relaxing and fulfilling summer for all of us but we can't wait to get back at it full time. Lots more cool stuff is coming in September and October but we can't quite spill the beans yet. Just be sure to keep checking back and follow us on Facebook for regular updates.
All the best,
The CLBDI blog is run by Advisory Board member Joseph Daniel.
