Halloween is coming up, and DOVE Chocolate Discoveries offers a HUGE variety of chocolate products. There are different options available; you can get a great discount if you order chocolate for a party (hosting parties also earns you credits that can be used on future purchases), you can make a small purchase and I'll give you the best offer I can, or you can sign up to sell (and buy) chocolate as a chocolatier.
If you'd like to become a chocolatier, only 2 weeks are left on the Business Kit Sale. The Standard Business Kit costs $99, and the Master Chocolatier Kit costs $399 -- valid until Halloween. Email me at acadia@paris.com for more information.

In Honor of my Grandma - An Online Fund for Breast Cancer

I recently created a Fundraising Page through Susan G. Komen for the Cure. In honor of my grandma, I encourage you to visit the site, sign the guest book, share your stories, and make a contribution to the fund. Your donation will support groundbreaking breast cancer research and education initiatives, bringing us one step closer to finding the cures.

Thank you for taking the time to show your support. Anything helps. ("A person's a person, no matter how small." - Dr. Seuss)

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

As you probably know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. To acknowledge this, I will be donating 20% of sales from my mark. store to the American Cancer Society. Additionally, from October 1 until October 12, 100% of profits from the mark. Sophistique Eau de Toilette Spray will be donated to the American Cancer Society (and you'll be entered into a contest, which you can read about on one of my other posts).

If you -- or someone you know -- would like more information about specials like this, just give me an email and I'll send my monthly newsletter for mark. to that address. As always, you can contact me at acadia@paris.com with feedback, suggestions, comments, questions, etc.

If you like the idea of buying and giving at the same time, but you're not interested in mark. products, I also have some awareness products that are available at cafepress.com/acadiaDesigns, as well as a catalog of DOVE Chocolate Discoveries items (see previous post). A portion of sales from all of the products listed will be donated to the American Cancer Society in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
