EB Awareness Week

Have you heard of EB-Epidermolysis Bullosa? Via Wikipedia, by definition Epidermolysis bullosa (EB) is an inherited connective tissue disease causing blisters in the skin and mucosal membranes, with an incidence of 1/50,000. Its severity ranges from mild to lethal. It is caused by a mutation in the keratin or collagen gene.
As a result, the skin is extremely fragile. Minor mechanical friction or trauma will separate the layers of the skin and form blisters. People with this condition have an increased risk of cancers of the skin, and many will eventually be diagnosed with it as a complication of the chronic damage done to the skin.

I had never even heard of EB until I came across the blog of Courtney Roth, “EB”ing A Mommy.  Courtney is the mother of Tripp, an absolute angel who has one of the more severe forms of EB, Junctional Epidermolysis Bullosa.  Tripp has to live every day with the painful aspects of EB.  He has to be constantly bandaged, fed via tube, and breathes via a ventilator-just to name a few of the symptoms the poor guy faces.  His mother is his very dedicated and loving 24 hour a day caregiver, and I am blown away by their strength.

Courtney has been steadfast in her dedication to Tripp and to helping raise awareness and finding a cure for EB.  She has never asked her readers for any help for herself, just for helping to do something to fight this awful illness.  October 25-31 is EB Awareness Week, and we here at PersonalizedFree.com wanted to do something to help the cause.  There are several different ways you can get involved in raising awareness for EB.  Via Courtney’s blog:

“EB” a part of the Cure by joining the Facebook page HERE.
Create your own awareness page.
Post about EB on your Facebook page or blog.
Share the awareness video at the end of this post.
Educate yourself about EB (Debra.org is a great way).
Simply tell another person about EB.
Educate your children about EB so that they will be able to recognize it.

We’ve also come up with one more way.  From now until Christmas, we’ve given Tripp his very own promo code- “TRIPP”.  We will donate 10% of the purchase price of every single personalized Christmas ornament purchased with this code to DebRA.org to help raise awareness for EB and fund research for a cure.  It’s a win-win situation-you can get some goodies for your tree and potentially help save lives in the process.  Also feel free to head over to “EB”ing A Mommy and give Courtney and Tripp some love-we want them to know they are not alone!!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

And unfortunately, the odds probably are that you know someone who has been directly effected by Breast Cancer.  According to the American Cancer Society via the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month website, Breast Cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in women other than skin cancer, with almost 200,000 cases expected to be diagnosed this year alone.
Noble organizations such as The Susan G. Komen Foundation are working tirelessly to fight the monster known as Breast Cancer, with the end goal of finding a cure.

We here at PersonalizedFree.com support the race for the cure, and the fight against Breast Cancer.  We are offering a Pink Ribbon Ornament this year.  This is the perfect way to honor someone who is battling or has lost the fight against Breast Cancer.  For someone who participated in the SGK 3-Day Race for the Cure, we also have a Walking Female Ornament.

Breast Cancer 3 Day Walk Christmas Ornament

Also available in blonde, this walking lady can be personalized to commemorate the walker’s name, date and location of 3 Day Walk.  You can even brag about how much was raised!

In addition, we’ve come up with a promotion to help.  For every new Facebook fan we acquire in the next week, up to 1200 total fans, we will donate $1 directly to the Susan G. Komen Foundation to help win the fight against breast cancer.  All it takes is a little click of the like button over on our Facebook page to help out!  Personalized Christmas Ornaments for a cause-what a win for everyone!

Get your sweat on with Sports and Exercise Ornaments!

I gift everyone in my family a different personalized Christmas ornament each year.  Doing so is typically a no-brainer, I just choose a different family ornament to add to their collection.  Difficulty can sometime arise, however, when giving single person ornaments-one person can only have so many hobbies and professions!  I’ve found a solution, though.  Most people exercise or participate in some form of sports, and we have many different ornaments in our large inventory to accommodate that!  Here are some ideas for the athletic person in your life.

zumba dance christmas ornament

New, and sure to be very popular this year, is the Hip Hop Dance-Zumba Girl-Blonde ornament.  (Also available in brunette.)  Zumba is the group exercise craze of the moment, and any participant is sure to find this ornament absolutely adorable.

power lifter man personalized christmas ornament

But maybe you’ve got a brother that’s not so much into Zumba as he is weightlifting.  No problem-check out the Power Lifter Man-Brown Hair ornament. (Also available in blonde.)

female runner personalized christmas ornament

Do you know someone who ran in the Chicago Marathon last weekend?  Or maybe just lives to hit the treadmill a couple times a week.  We’ve got something for them as well-the Female Runner with Stripe-Brown Hair ornament.  (Also available in blonde female, dark skin female, and blonde, brown, or dark skin male.)  Hint: you can make this Christmas gift extra special by adding personalization of the runner’s PR best time, or a special race they completed this year.  We can personalize on anything you like, just include it in the special instructions when you order.

These are just a very small selection of the sports and exercise ornaments we have available-please come check out PersonalizedFree.com to see our vast array of others!

Remember this Halloween with a Personalized Ornament!

Well, I suppose it is time to admit defeat.  The kids are back in school, if you are here in the Pacific Northwest like us, the rains have set in, and Christmas decorations are out in the stores-this can only mean one thing.  Summer is definitely over, and fall is upon us.  Fall is not all bad, though.  Who doesn’t love the changing of the leaves, pumpkin pies, and Halloween?  One might not automatically make the connection between Halloween and personalized Christmas ornaments, but you know we sure do!  Getting the kiddos all dressed up and taking them out for a magical night of trick or treating is definitely a memory to be remembered, so why not personalize an ornament that you can look back on for years to come?  We have some ornaments in our huge inventory of over 1500 ornaments that are sure to fit the bill.
