The GillianCracker Elves
need to move to a new and permanent cracker workshop soon!
We need so MUCH MORE work space and an owned rather than rented location
giving us premises-security and the ability to build a workshop from floor up the ceiling,
building in our shelving and work tables and storage cubby holes
And to have a shipping room and an elf tea room and a little shop room
with an assortment of our best crackers and ktis and greeting cards for our visiting customers.
We DO have a mortgage lender willing to help us secure our mortgage
but first we must
RAISE OUR DOWN PAYMENT.
Not entirely easy because, as you know, our business
is not profit-motivated - we are here to spread the word about
the wonderful Victorian-era style Christmas crackers
so this tradition may live and thrive for generations to come.
So we Elves put our thinking caps on to see how we could best raise the funds by
designing a special cracker product which is also in keeping with our corporate goals -
Here is what we came up with (ta-da)
"DIY Cracker Kits!"
for the holidays and all year round.
We hope you LOVE them as much as we do!
We have a very short time within which to reach our goal.
Please help in any way you can.
Halloween, Thanksgiving & Christmas are coming up soon and we have kits for all!
The kit price is for 10 crackers INCLUDES postage: $23.50 - $25.50 depending on your location.
Great for children, kids at heart, parties, office prezzies, teacher gifts, weddings, anniversaries, stocking stuffers -
oh... there are SO MANY times when a cracker can turn an occasion into an extra fun day!
We take great pride in continuing to build our business which:
1. Creates fun, quality Christmas crackers for the holidays and year round
2. Supports creative artisans and independent suppliers
3. Shares the venerable Victorian Christmas cracker tradition with people all over the world
4. Provides local jobs both inhouse and through an "OutWorkers" Program!
We can only continue to make GREAT crackers though and GROW PERMANENT JOBS
and SUPPORT FAMILY OWNED BUSINESSES AND LOCAL ARTISANS
if we can secure a permanent location for our workshop.
We have been working on this SO VERY HARD and done all we can.
Now we need YOUR help.
We MUST sell 750 DIY cracker kits to raise the down payment.
Do consider purchasing one or two or three kits. Or more!
And please tell your friends and neighbours and co-workers and teachers and..
well, PLEASE TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW about our
"Finding the Elves a New Home" campaign and our KITS.
Thank You from the bottom of our little old Cracker Elf hearts!
