We’re being judged. HALP!

Let’s cut the crap and tell you straight away that we’re asking for 17 seconds of your time (the most precious of all things – time). But seriously it only takes 17 seconds.

Here’s the scoop – we had two colleagues encourage us to chase this Fedex Small Business Grant that favors small companies (like ours!) doing work that gives back to the community (like ours!).

With one tip, we thought “meh.” But when the second one came in we thought FIIIIINNNNEEEE we’ll go after the $50k that would allow us to hire a coder (hey-o! We’re not coders even though we’ve built our site!) to make ordering lockets custom re: sizing your photograph for your locket. Does that even make sense? Essentially you’d upload your photo and then be able to move it around and match it to the size of your locket. Right now we do that, and we love doing it, but it’s your locket, not ours. And we get notes a lot about how people would like their photo to look. Giving you the freedom to scale your own photo would feel really special. And then if we saved that time on our end, can you even imagine how much more we could accomplish? Ergo, give back to the community with our 25% donation each month?

GO VOTE HERE! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

We do the best with what we have and move forward, always. Is there any other way to live life?

Warmly,

Amy + Allyssa
