Bra donations--another Free the Girls event

Calling East Tennessee Free The Girls fans! Come donate your bras in Alcoa, TN on Sunday, July 10 from 10am-2pm! We will be set up in the Chick-fil-a parking lot. Our last bra drive on May 16 brought in 1,850 chances to change someones life-give or take a few cups. Let's double that number...this will be a rummage sale-type event.

Contact Aryn Faughnan at arynf04 (at) gmail (dot) com for more information.
Can the old bras in the back of your underwear drawer help fight modern day slavery? Free The Girls says, “YES!” Free The Girls, a new cause-focused company centered around fighting human trafficking, is asking ladies to gather up their gently used bras—and ask friends, family, co-workers and local businesses to do the same.

You can also mail your bras directly to:
Free The Girls LLC
8200 S. Quebec St. #A3-137
Centennial, CO 80112

More Info:

“The bras are sent directly to a safehouse in Mozambique for women who have been rescued out of slavery,” says Kimba Langas, Co-Founder of Free The Girls. “The girls are given the bras as starting inventory for their own micro-business selling the bras. So something that has given us “support” can provide support to other women in need. It’s all about creating opportunities.”

For more information, visit www.freethegirls.com or find them on Facebook.

Crafting supplies at Big Lots

I recently visited the Big Lots on Broadway and was blown away by the number of clear, acrylic stamping collections they had. And the price? $2!

If I had to guess, I'd say there were 30-40 different choices of stamp sets. Well worth your time!

Here's what I got!

Hair Flowers, my newest hobby: a giveaway!

light purple ranunculus
My newest hobby has recently turned into something more. I opened an Etsy shop to sell hair flower, feather and other unique clips. I've got many, many more to upload on Etsy and lots more ideas, too. I named it Isha's Flower Garden (so that it's easily searchable) and have also created a Facebook page for it.

So.... of course I must have giveaways!

I'm currently offering this hint of purple ranunculus flower to Facebook fans. To enter, you have to "like" Isha's Flower Garden on Facebook and "like" the post about the giveaway.

Locals can avoid shipping charges and receive lower prices by meeting me when making an order. Here are some of the kind of offerings:

Ordering Coupons

Sometimes a coupon gets me so excited that I just have to have more of them. When that happens, and I know it's a popular coupon (one that won't show up at coupon swaps), I get on www.thecouponclippers.com to see what I can find.

Today's was bestlife buttery spread.

Many don't buy coupons, but I do occasionally, especially if it's a product I can store for a long period or use a lot of no matter if the item is on sale or not. Also, I only order ones I will definitely use.

Margarines can be frozen. Sometimes the consistency changes a little, but that doesn't bother me. I haven't before frozen bestlife's product, so we'll see how it goes.

Here's how an order might look from the coupon clippers (the photos are extra large so you can see what it'll look like, though the image won't look good on the blog):

I'm sure there are more, but here are some Father's Day card offers I'm aware of. After all, many of us have several fathers in our lives: fathers, biological fathers, step-fathers, grandfathers, father-figures, fathers-in-law, step-fathers-in-law, adoptive fathers, husbands, great-grandfathers, social fathers, .... so some of you might need several options!

Free Father's Day...

Forks Over Knives playing in Knoxville Starting June 10

Forks Over Knives is a new documentary about our food; "A film that," Roger Ebert says, "can save your life."

From the Facebook page:
FORKS OVER KNIVES examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods.
See this movie.

KNOXVILLE, TN (Begins June 10 and plays for minimum of one week)
Downtown West Cinema 8 (Regal), 1640 Downtown Blvd., Knoxville, TN 37919. Fandango.

Thanks, mom!
