A Customer’s Special Request

Our first POP Project in many ways snuck right up on us.  We hadn’t yet launched Party On Purpose (though plans were already in place) when Beth contacted us looking to sneak in an order for her son even though our shipping calendar was booked for the dates she’d needed the party mailed by…

A special request for help that didn’t fall on deaf ears.

Beth mentioned that she had been behind schedule planning her soon to be 1 year old son’s birthday bash no thanks to the fact that her 3 year old son was in the middle of an intense bone marrow transplant.

Need I say more?  Was this a sign?  We not only gladly accepted Beth’s request and crammed her into our already full shipping calendar, but we went ahead and paid for the party pack.

More details on her little guy Liam’s party can be found here and please check out the Tumblr page Beth created for her other son Lucas for more details on his battle: http://loveforlucas.tumblr.com/.

Beth… thank YOU for letting us use your family as an excuse to pay it forward… your story is one of many that continues to fuel us.

We spotted this on Lucas’ tumblr page and we believe it’s worth repeating:

“There are other kids and adults who need bone marrow transplants, just like Lucas does. You can help by registering with National Marrow Donor Foundation at BeTheMatch.org and becoming a potential bone marrow donor.”
