Save Evy’s Tree: The End Is Near

Well everyone, one week left. YIKES!

So, how are we doing? Honestly, not much different than when I posted last week. At that point we were about 50% of the way there. Today we are at about 53% of the way there. So not a huge amount of progress.

Let’s be honest…am I going to make 100%?? Not to be a Debbie Downer, but I can’t say positively that we will. Don’t get me wrong, I believe God can do anything, but sometimes you have to be realistic. When I first started out on the Save Evy’s Tree trail, I had a minimum and a maximum amount that I needed in order to proceed successfully with Evy’s Tree. The 100% goal, obviously, was the maximum amount. The minimum amount would allow me to cautiously proceed…I would still be able to make a manufacture order, however, a bit smaller than what I had planned, but an order just the same that would enable Evy’s Tree to continue to grow.

┬áIn order to reach this minimum I would need a small miracle in one week: 350 items would need to sold. I had mentioned before that I wasn’t going to give you a number of hoodies left to sell due to the fact that this number is just an average amount that may or may not match up with the final number I need in the end {remember…any tee shirts, scrap boxes, etc, help me reach this goal and change the amount of items need to sell}, but I have had so many people tell me it helped them to know an actual number we need to reach, so there it is. Hopefully that helps some of you. :)

So here’s where I need your help…so many of you have already jumped on board and bought something. THANK YOU!! You guys are really, truly amazing. I can’t express how thankful I am to you all. SO SO THANKFUL. I was telling my friends and family that if Evy’s Tree succeeds…it will most definitely be because of you all. I love you.

So where to go from here:

1. The shop will close on Friday, July 6 at 11 PM PST. I will close indefinitely while I figure out the financial side of Evy’s Tree and take some time to pray about the future of Evy’s Tree with my family.

2. We will take preorders until that last day. Please remember that preorders have a 4 week turnaround before they ship. That will be the same amount time even if you order on the last day.

3. #saveevystree on Instagram and twitter. I’m hoping that you all can bombard twitter and instagram with the hashtag “saveevystree” and tell your friends about our shop. If you love our items, let them know! Take pictures of your items and share them!

4. Tee Shirts. Tomorrow morning {Friday, June 29} at 10 AM PST, I will be listing the new tees. Here are a couple previews:

The tees and tanks will be $19.95 + shipping. Here’s where I have a huge favor to ask of you….if you can’t afford a hoodie, could you buy a tee? I keep thinking that it would be so awesome if we had hundreds of Evy’s Tree tees out there! We will have both adult and kids and in many colors.

5. PLEASE PLEASE PRAY. Here’s where the rubber meets the road. I am begging you, please pray for Evy’s Tree. Please. I need it and that’s the bottom line. I have to be honest: I am tired and can’t really see which way is up at the moment. I really need to know what God wants for this business. Here’s the thing, I do believe that if this business is supposed to succeed, it will. Because that is just how God rolls. But where the prayer comes in is for the human side of it: me…for direction, peace, clarity. Thank you friends. I can’t tell you how much that means to me.

I hate to sound like I am begging, but I guess I am. ugh. 350 items is a big number. Really, really big. But I have a big God. Oh and I have great customers. ha. Want to shop? Click HERE. I add a bunch of new things too, FYI… :)

I love you guys. Thank you, thank you, thank you.



PS. Klove’s encouraging word today made me cry, guess I just needed to remember who holds a cattle on a thousand hills and knows my every thought and need. “This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.” Ps 118:24

    This is what I posted on Facebook and shared your link. God Bless and I am praying for God’s perfect will to be done.
    I just have to say that I ordered a Brillia and a ruffled cardigan…received them yesterday. I am soooooo thrilled! They are so professionally made and so comfy! I can hardly wait for it to get cold so that I can wear it! I am thinking I NEED to order more. If you are on the fence about ordering…I promise, you will not be disappointed! ~Cindy

    Sorry I took so long to make a purchase but I did so today! A hoodie and a tee shirt to be exact! I plan on buying another tee shirt tomorrow! I have been and will continue to pray for the future of Evy’s Tree.

    If we are 50% of the way there – if everyone could just put in one more order or spread the word to one other person who orders, we could easily reach the goal!! I know I’ve put a few phone calls out there to family and friends, advertised to my friends and acquaintances on Facebook and sent in another order myself. Think gifts, Christmas, birthdays etc!!! It is so easy to think of someone special who would love something from Evy’s tree. I know this really sounds like a sales pitch but when I read Amy’s last blog it make me think, if every person who ordered the first time can rally around for the last 50%, we can save Evy’s Tree!!
