Fun Fact: Did you know we have Sisters who chose to remain nameless? They are always here, lurking, giving, responding, sending me secret emails, reminding me at the end of them that I can quote them but please please dont share their name. Those secret Ninjas. Oh how I love thee. This is a shout out to our secret Ninjas!
Did you know that you shine like stars?
"Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life..."
I love all of you Sisters. I consider it a huge honor that we regularly get to join together and do something out of this world awesome - giving to strangers - It is a huge blessing to me to give and know that we have changed someones day. I hope you receive the same blessings also. Thank you for being so courageous!
This brings us to our next round of LOVE BOMBs (we put it in capitals because its a big deal)
This October we are collecting and nominating!
We are doing two things with these bombs:
1) Bless those who might not receive anything for Christmas*. This means widows, single mums, financially struggling women etc. We are going to collect in October and send these out mid-December in time for Christmas, all wrapped up and pretty. We're going to send them luxury items. Perfumes, lotions, Absolute treats.
(I know Christmas is a tight time for most of us (me included) so I thought if we collect in October it might elliviate some of the pressure for those who still want to give)
*We are going to do something else closer to Christmas which will involve you in your own community on the cheap, much like our baking drop, except different
2)Bless those women who go above and beyond with out being asked and without complaint. This means business owners, family women, students, single mums, and anyone else you think deserves some recognition. We are going to collect in October and send these out mid-November. This could include our usual LOVE BOMB items: beauty products, vouchers, luxuries, chocolates (!!!!), magazines, novels, crafty items and anything else you think they might enjoy (and might not be prioritised into their budgets).
Who gets a LOVE BOMB:
For the first time ever your nominations are going to be decided based a pon need and resources (whereas in the past we have just created a goal and gone for it in a first nominated first served basis). The Christmas Appeal will be a priority, and anything above and beyond that will be made into an unlimited number of LOVE BOMBs (depending on the supply of donations) for November. Nominations by previous donators of The Sisterhood will be prioritised.
Previous nominations will be put in the running for a November BOMB, unless I can tell from their description they would suit a Christmas one! No need to re-nominate those you already have in the past :)
In November once all of the nominations and donations have been received I will begin to post short bios on who we are blessing! Know in advance that they are worth it.

How to donate:
We have now exceeded our maximum amount of $ donations (before we need to be registered as a charity... which we are getting around to... but best be on the safe side) therefore all donations will need to come in a physical form. If you don't know what to buy (and I know a lot of you prefer to send money for vouchers etc) please contact me and perhaps you could buy a voucher (or put money towards it with someone else) and have it sent to HQ. Annoying I know, but has to be done this way (for now) I'm afraid.
You can send any donations to Sisterhood HQ:
PO Box 10100
If you need to courier an item please email me and ask for a physical address.
Please make sure the items you are sending are in as new condition and you think someone would really love!
If you have any questions please contact me on sophieslim (at) moo2 (dot) co (dot) nz
