Good morning my crazy readers. I had a rude awakening at 3 am when my hubby’s cell phone beeped & bounced around on the bathroom sink. I heard it, but he’s still sleeping soundly. I tried, really tried to go back to sleep but I started feeling chills, thrills and slight nausea. My HopeChest Project is over, but it’s really only just begun. I have never been so excited to post big news than sharing with you that we sold almost 800 T shirts…. they kept rolling in all night.
I’ve received lots of emails from last second shoppers and I have to say today- I’m sorry, no more T’s for sale. HopeChest Valentine’s Day Project is all over till next year. I talked to Tom’s team and we are already thinking of ideas for a new project and new T shirt. Last night, I had my first team of crazy friends come over and help me organize, roll, address, stuff and seal up T shirts. They stormed in my house at 6pm sharp and didn’t leave until the clock struck midnight (well, more like 9, but it was a school night) Thank you Team Crazy for helping me and making me feel that this will all be a breeze. It’s still hard for me to wrap my head around how many shirts you purchased for “Shirts For Shoes!” You know you broke records in a big way.
I feel overwhelmed knowing so many orphans will be blessed with new shoes and new shirts. I feel slightly overwhelmed making sure you get your T shirts before Valentine’s Day. I feel overwhelmed doing something so new and so crazy. My hubby reminded me several times yesterday that the hardest part was selling the T shirts, mailing them out is the easy part. I mentioned that to my friends last night and their looks told me something different. Yep- mailing out 800 T shirts in not going to be easy.
What can you do to help? Well, if you live in my neck of the wood… come on over and Rock & Roll with me. If you don’t, please pray for me. I need super energy and spunk and lots of scones to make my deadline. My goal is to have every T shirt in the mail by next Monday. The Post Office has no idea what is coming soon- one crazy mom with hundreds of packages wrapped up in love. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making our first Project so wildly successful. I want to thank you for all your emails and cheers in the comments. I feel renewed and energized and its only 5:27am.
Just a little craziness…
