and ride it, choo choo! no? ok. well anyway! did you know the Noonday Collection spring line launches TODAY!??? welcome to DAY 1 of the Noonday Ambassador blog train!!! I am so honored to get to be the launching pad for this amazing 40 days of giveaways + stories from amazing ambassadors from all over the country! My sweet friend McCall started this fun tradition, and she will be taking the baton tomorrow, so make sure to check out her blog then here.
I am really excited to not only be giving away a $50 Noonday gift card [for you to purchase online anything your heart desires, anytime!] but I’m even more honored and excited to tell you how YOU can be part of bringing a sweet boy home to his family in Texas from China. That’s right. Did you know that adoption is part of Noonday’s DNA? Noonday Collection actually started as an adoption fundraiser, and founder Jessica Honegger quickly realized God had other plans that included starting this business! I’ve watched Noonday be a huge part of her sweet Jack’s story through the years and am proud to say Noonday is a huge part of our adoption story as well. I was introduced to Noonday + Jessica the very same day God spoke to my husbands heart and we said YES to adoption. Back then, Jessica was traveling around our great state doing all the trunk shows herself and I begged her to send me a box of samples because my good friends wanted to host an adoption show for me. Oh, what’s this adoption trunk show thing about? well I”m so glad you asked…
isn’t’ that amazing? not only does the adoptive family get 10% cash towards their adoption, but their friends have a chance to come and support them in a fun new way! Adoption trunk shows are a “win-win-win” as I like to say, the artisans win!, the adoptive family wins!, and YOU win! There are several ways YOU can get involved in this.
1. you can host an adoption show for a family in your community – if you don’t know who the local ambassador is, fill out this quick form online and someone will contact you.
2. if there isn’t an ambassador in your area, why don’t you think about joining our world changing team? find out more here. This is what I did! after my friends generously hosted an adoption show for me, I was hooked and the ambassador program was just getting off the ground. I had the chance for the 2 years we were in the process of adopting, to raise a a good chunk of our adoption expenses through the commission I earned being an ambassador! [and amazing friends STILL hosting adoption shows for me!]
3. attend an adoption show! or purchase online! From now until May 1st, I am going to match the 10% that Noonday gives for adoptive families for trunk shows and help our good friends the Stephans with their adoption expenses of their boy in China! [me + some girls started this campaign//read more about their story here] so anytime you shop online, know that 10% of your sale will go towards making this family of 4 to a family of 5…
watching my sweet friend Sarah pray, research, and connect with other people to get new ideas of how to fundraise I’ve decided to start something new on the blog! The 3rd Thursday of every month, I’m going to feature a company/group that is working to help adoptive families fundraise! I will also after this month host a linkup, where adoptive families can link their fundraisers and hopefully connect with other families and help get the word out about their fundraisers and come up with new ideas! I have the next 4-5 months lined up, but if you would like to submit your company, please email me at wynne[dot]elder[at]gmail[dot]com!
Ok friends! go enter to win a $50 Noonday Collection gift card and dream about what you would purchase if you won! and how YOU can be a part of helping bring kids HOME through an adoption trunk show! ready..set..GO! http://wynneelder.noondaycollection.com/ and be sure to visit McCall’s blog tomorrow!
oh hi Casey! thanks for modeling some of my favorite pieces in our new spring line. the earrings, bracelets, scarf and necklaces she’s wearing are some of my FAVES!
Hey, I'm Wynne!
Hi, friend! First, I truly am so giddy that you are here. I want you to know I believe in you and all the ways you are growing towards living a more intentional life. I genuinely hope you are encouraged from our time together here.
A little about me, I’m a type 7 on the enneagram, a total extrovert + people lover, entrepreneur, connector, storyteller, people gatherer, and passionate wife, mama + friend. I feel most alive when I’m exploring new places and surrounded by people I love. Give me a day in the outdoors disconnected from wifi, and I am a happy girl. I run on oat milk lattes, Jesus, gratitude journaling and kitchen dance parties with my four kids.
Welcome, come on in!
Your subject is too funny girl. It looks lovely!
And just saw that I’m supposed to leave my favorite bracelet:_) I love the mosaic cuff and the very versatile cuff! They are amazing!
Oh, friend, how can I choose? I love both the Athena and the Serpentine Wrap Bracelet.
