Happy New Year everyone! I took a break from blogging because we were closed for two weeks during the holidays but we are back and back with a fresh new website.
As 2008 ended, I was able to take some time and reflect upon the year. There were so many great things that happened for us as a company (i.e. our celebrity clients and being published in InStyle!) but I am reminded of the reason that Papeterie exists. Besides the goals of us wanting to offer stylish stationery for our clients at an unattainable price, and being able to do something we love that also pays the bills, we strongly believe in our hearts that Papeterie is here so that we can use the company to make the world a better place.
We are still exploring what that might mean exactly, but some small steps including donating 5% of our net proceeds to World Vision, the ASPCA, the Humane Society of the United States, World Society for the Protection of Animals, and KIVA.
My dream ultimate goal? I would love to open a no-kill shelter for animals.
Check back soon as we add the option of being able to choose from our list of charities that you would like us to donate the 5% too.
And again, Happy New Year to everyone and congratulations to you all that got engaged over the holidays.
