The devastation and aftermath of the horrific flooding in QLD has shocked us all. We hosted an auction for a nappy on Facebook last week which raised a wonderfully generous $150 to go towards the relief. I have another auction to announce to raise further much needed funds for the QLD Flood Relief Appeal. So many of my customers have been affected by this tragedy and I feel so helpless being down in Melbourne and unable to physically help so the next best thing to physically helping rebuild is to donate. Every cent counts towards rebuilding lives and families.
This auction is for THREE CUSTOM MADE DB nappies in YOUR CHOICE of fabrics. Available prints are pictured above. They will all come with bamboo inserts and postage is included anywhere in Australia. International bidders please contact me for a postage quote. Happy Bidding everyone! Please dig deep and bid from the very bottom of your hearts. Head to facebook.com/designerbums and start bidding. The auction will close at 9PM Wednesday 19th January 2011.
In other news, we certainly sailed past 1750 fans on Facebook.... and kept on sailing right past 2000. The count now sits at approximately 2025. We had a great stocking last Thursday evening. 114 nappies were put up for sale, with all stock selling out in about ten minutes flat. For those of you who managed to secure nappies, well done! For the others who missed out, I am so sorry! As many of you know, I make each and every nappy by hand which I LOVE, however it also makes for a very limited number of nappies available each stocking.
I can assure you all that I am working on ways to increase production of these nappies. I am currently on the hunt for a manufacturer who will uphold the standard and quality of Designer Bums so that I can stock nappies on my website on a full-time basis, as well as supply a couple of little nappy stores with some stock also :) When this time comes in the very near future, nappy stockings will become a thing of the past! So please bear with me whilst I organise ways to provide you all (er... I mean, your babies) with lovely nappies :)
I am also looking at bringing our next stocking forward to very early Feb. I will keep you all updated as to the exact date as well as some other exciting upcoming DB news!
Take care, until next time
