Last month we sold the chaise lounge and raised Php 20,250.00 for Black Pencil Project. All the money that will be raised will give us the opportunity to buy school supplies for children in the far-flung communities around the Philippines come back to school season this June.
This month we will do our Share again with the objective of giving back and helping Black Pencil Project.
Every month, we will feature a unique and beautiful item from K I S H and we will offer it at half the price. If you purchase the featured item, the money you pay will directly go to a foundation/organization who needs it most for their charity work. We wont earn a single centavo on this endeavor, but we will do our share to make a difference.
Here is a very simple way of how you can take part and give your S H A R E.
1. Every month we will feature an item from K I S H. We will blog about it to provide information.
2. The announcements would be simultaneously out in our Facebook and Twitter (@itokish) accounts. We suggest that you follow our Facebook and Twitter accounts so you can get the info right away.
3. If you want a chance to purchase the item, leave a comment on that blog entry saying that you want to buy the item. We will have a predetermined number that will choose the 3th commenter who would be selected as the lucky purchaser. To make it fair game for everyone, we would not approve to publish all the comments until the 3th commenter is determined.
4. The purchase will only be final once payment is made. We will publish the comment to purchase once the transaction is completed. The item will be packed and ready for pick up at K I S H anytime after the announcement. If the item will be shipped, cost to freight will be added to the cost of purchase. Cash payment only.
5. K I S H in turn will turn over the cash to the chosen organization/charity and a picture will be posted on the next Our S H A R E blog entry.
It will be our share and your share.
For the month of February we are featuring this My kiss fish hanging lamp from the Netherlands . Our selling price is Php 14,000.00 but you can get it only for Php 7,000.00 (50%). You get a beautiful lamp and you get to help.
