Hi all...
It's coming up on my birthday and I like to give myself something that makes me feel good about myself... and being generous in a very minor way makes me feel happier than I really deserve to. :rolleyes:/> That's the reason for this post. As I was documenting all my solids (I'm getting ready to donate some of them to a charity I like) I found seven boxes that have no solids: boat ride (both boxes); harrods teddy (both boxes); dazzling gold statue of liberty (gold box); london calling (both boxes); pink tutu (cylinder box and white outside box); romantic edition (gold box); squirrel (both boxes);

I didn't want to just toss them away, because I bet one of you has solids that is missing a box and would like the box. If that's you, then contact me. If you're willing to send me a postage-paid self-addressed box, i'll send you your box back, with your choice of empty box inside it.

Please respond by the end of the week (I don't go online every day but should be back online Thu or Fri). If I get seven different people asking me for seven each, i'll just choose one for each (first come, first served). A very merry unbirthday to my friends at SolidPerfume.com :D/>/>

Happy Birthday and you do deserve a great birthday...not for gifting solids and boxes, but because you are a special person!!

I hope it is a very happy birthday full of blessings and joys for you!
Jennifer in Jax


I sent a message to you via the message system regarding the boxes. Thank you as this is a very very sweet thing to do for solid perfume collectors!!

Hi Lauren - although I don't need any boxes, I think it is a really lovely thing you are doing offering them to the members on this site.

This really warms my heart to know that others enjoy the gift of giving as well.

Well done for your kindness, I hope it brings you great joy and a return of kindness from other people - not just in words, but in actions as well. :)

Thank you so much Sandra. It's kind of an open secret I guess, that the best way to be happy is to try to spread it about... sort of 'enlightened self interest' - Something from your lovely post tells me you already know and practice that... Have a beautiful, blessed day! :)
Pace e bene,
Lauren

I work for a college foundation. The best part of my job is helping individual donors. It's very rewarding to see them meet their scholarship students. When I help someone set up a memorial fund for a loved one, it's gratifying to see how it lifts their spirits. My job is to make donors feel good about philanthropy.
GIving is so much better than getting...

Happy Birthday to you and thankyou for your charity. If you haven't parted with the box for the pink tutu yet, I could use it. Otherwise, no worries! I know the warm and fuzzy feeling you get from giving and serving others is in the lord's plans for all of us. God Bless!
