Day 6: A Premium Giveaway
I had the fun today of watching my children march in the annual Donation Day parade. This Grass Valley tradition has been going on for more than 130 years, and provides food for those in need. It was the inspiration of Caroline Meade Hansen in 1883, who saw the school children walking to school and thought of the difference they could make in hard times. The Ladies Relief Society took up the call to help, and they continue today.
It’s a good reminder of the caring that can happen in this season. My week has been full between practices for the Nutcracker and busy days at work. I needed the reminder that looking out for others can change our perspective. Helping and caring for people is a good way to spend the holidays. We all have our ups and downs, and sometimes we need a helping hand, and sometimes we are the helping hand. And sometimes both in the same day.
I hope that each of you are finding the peace of this season: the moments that bring you joy. I will be spending time with my family this week, which is one of my favorite things. I get to see my daughter in the Nutcracker, and the joy on her face as she twirls onstage.
Today is day six of our twelve days of Christmas deals, and we are stepping away from our daily sales to bring you a Christmas treat. We have put together a box of our Roastmaster’s Premium Coffees, valued at $140, and we’re giving it away to you. This is the gift box that every coffee connoisseur wants to win.
The box contains five of our most unique and exceptional coffees: Nicaragua Maragogype, Panama Geisha, Kona Fancy, Christmas Coffee, and our Jamaican Blue Mountain. These are all stellar coffees, and anyone would be lucky to win them.
You can enter by leaving a comment on our blog here. We will draw the winner on Christmas Eve, so you have a few days to enter. We will also have four other giveaways between now and Christmas, so watch for those emails, or follow along on social media.
Our twelve days of Christmas countdown will continue until Christmas Eve. If you still need a gift, we can still ship with 1-3 day delivery times. And of course you can stop in and buy a gift package or a pound of coffee to take care of your guests.
Next Friday is Christmas Day. We will be closed to celebrate with family and friends. I know that it is a hard day for some of you, so my wish for all of you is that there will be peace in your day, somewhere. Maybe in a smile, maybe in a cup of coffee, maybe in the beauty of the sunrise or the geese calling overhead. But I hope that you find it no matter how fleeting. Merry Christmas from all of us at Carolines.
