Gifts That Give Back

Uppercase Living is dedicated to uplifting people through our people, products and company. I'm proud that we often reach out to help different organizations around the country. We've always supported charities through the sale of our products and this year that goes even further with our Create Hope initiative.

First, throughout our Idea Book you'll find the following expressions whose sales help us support Habitat For Humanity and their effort to create housing throughout the U.S. and Canada.

One of our most popular Blume items also helps support Habitat: the Create Hope Bracelets. My customers love knowing that their purchase helps those in their community. I love that they are fun, colorful and easy to wear (they look great with jeans!), and can be split into up to 4 separate gifts or one big one.

Finally, our Help Others collection is designed entirely to provide help and support to single mothers in Uganda. The whole collection is made using Berr Beads, beads made by wrapping recycled magazines around a bicycle spoke, then applying a resin to make them stronger and more durable. The beads are then strung by hand on different pieces of jewelry. The whole result is a collection of beautiful pieces, no two alike, but each bringing hope and self reliance to a group of mothers across the world. As a mother myself, this means so much to me, and my customers agree. But as a woman, I love the unique, colorful pieces which are like no other jewelry I've ever worn. My favorite is the Multi-color Mix Necklace, which constantly catches the attention of others whenever I wear it. I usually wear it as a bracelet, since it goes with almost everything in my wardrobe, and I can even add a charm if I feel like it.

While the multi color Help Others pieces are fun and playful, the single color ones are much more sophisticated. I particularly love the Soft Silver Necklace.

Whichever of these pieces you choose, you can feel good knowing that your purchase not only provides a gorgeous and heartfelt gift to someone on your list (even if that person is you!), but it also helps create jobs, homes, income, self-reliance, stability and most importantly hope, to families both at home and abroad. What a wonderful feeling, especially at this time of year.

Counting Down to Christmas With Uppercase Living

By far one of my favorite things in our Holiday Mini Catalog is this year's Christmas Countdown Kit. My kids love counting the days until Santa comes so we're all about a cute set like this. It's perfect for any home with children, churches, classrooms, Grandma's house, and even makes a whimsical addition to an office.

I also love this because it is a fantastic value. For only $19.95 the kit includes the metal charger, the two part expression in your choice of colors (I got mine in Crimson Red and Electric Lime), and a magnet that moves closer to Christmas with each passing day. All you do is assemble it (if you're local, I can do that for you) and begin the fun. You can even send it as a gift directly to someone who will think of you each day they move that magnet.

UL Tip: Glue a sparkly snowflake or other embellishment to the magnet to make it extra special. 

If you order your kit today, it will be an even better value because you'll also receive this 11"x11" sheet of Christmas designs absolutely FREE.

Whether it's for you or a gift, this is one decoration that will be enjoyed year after year, for the entire month of December. Happy counting!
