“While some folks are engaged in a frenetic buying spree, we’ve decided to take the day off, take the dogs for a walk and relax. My company doesn’t offer any discounts or coupons: we figure that if you like our bags and want to give them as gifts, that’s great, but discounts just aren’t our deal.
This holiday season, we want to focus on giving. The charity our company has chosen to support this year is the Adopt-A-Minefield campaign, an effort to solve the global landmine crisis. All around the world, innocent civilians, often children (and yes, animals too) are injured or killed by these left-overs of armed conflict. Adopt-A-Minefield is working to remedy this unacceptable state of affairs.
When you place a gift order through our Web site this holiday season and select gift boxing for $5, you’ll be supporting Adopt-A-Minefield, too.
Here’s how: late next week you’ll have the option of adding gift boxing to your order for an additional $5. That $5 will be donated to Adopt-A-Minefield. Better yet, our company has decided to match that $5, increasing the donation to Adopt-A-Minefield to $10 per gift box order.
Our gift box is a sturdy, high-quality cardboard display box (die-cut to our specifications in here in Washington). It’s decorated with original, designed-by-me (Tom Bihn) luggage label style stickers (including a holiday sticker designed specially for the gift box) and our signature airplane logo card.
Stay tuned: in the next few days, we’ll be posting preview pictures of the new Synapse backpack, unveiling a new gift certificate system, officially offering gift boxing, and sending out our November email newsletter. Until then: have a great weekend!” – Tom and the dogs
