Wow what an amazing day yesterday was, it was the first day of BPD awareness month and got an amazing response for the PDSN wristbands. The thing is I hadn’t planned the wristbands for that reason in fact, that was just destiny I guess although the 1st of May was an incentive to then get it done. I was having some problems with Royal Mail’s new pricing structure so I needed to be fair and make sure I got all the posting prices correct until the bands went live. The next problem was getting the payment page to look right, I was having some problems with the text and the photo’s and spent many hours tweaking it, getting it right. Got there in the end, after nearly pulling my hair out, lol, I have a little OCD too so needed it to look good and say what it needed to.
Literally 2 minutes after posting the buying link the orders started coming, I couldn’t believe it and it carried on right until the time that I went to bed. My printing labels wouldn’t work so it meant a little more work printing onto paper and using tape and I had to fill and stamp all the envelopes also. Mind you when we suffer with something like this, there is nothing better than something to keep you occupied and what a great reason also!
So I have my first bag of PDSN merchandise ready to take down to the post office this morning to add the extra postage onto and send out to all the lovely people. Once all the money has been calculated I will be able to reveal more about what will be happening with the profits made from the sale. I made the wristbands slightly cheaper than my original prices so they were more reasonable and also worked out a special offer too. Having said that, there is still going to be money left over which I will be putting to a great cause once I have done all my calculations.
So yes it’s a MASSIVE thank you to everyone that has supported this and also to ALL who are supporting my page’s. I am honoured that people have taken on board what I am trying to do and this will give me the strength to CARRY ON! ♥
