Edited: The BPAL Pajama Jam is now closed. All unclaimed/unreserved perfumes have been put into a BPAL Raffle. If you'd like a chance to win an 8 oz. bath oil, four 5mL bottles, and 40 sample-sized imps and/or decants, go check it out here before Monday December 14th! Thanks for all your support!
I'm trying to collect or raise money to purchase 500 pajama sets for the Pajama Program
, a charitable organization that provides warm pajamas and bedtime book to children in crisis. Earlier this year, I managed to donate 200 in time for Valentine's Day. This winter, I have until March 7th. I simply am not in the financial position this year to buy them all outright. Will you help? I'm selling my Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab perfumes and accepting pajama currency. :DHere's my proposition...
I'll trade full bottles from my BPAL collection as well as sample-sized imps, in exchange for pajama donations. For every two, new-with-tags pajama sets you send me, I'll send you the full bottle of BPAL of your choice. Want five bottles? That'll "cost" you ten donated pairs of pajamas. Sound fun?The Rules
1. Donated pajamas must be new with tags or original packaging. They may be any size/gender/style from newborn up to children's 16. Warm pajamas are especially appreciated. Scour clearance racks to find the best deals or pack up the PJs you bought for a child but never used.
2. You must comment below with the bottle(s) you'd like to reserve. I will hold reserved perfumes for ten days. If, in those ten days, I don't receive pajamas from you or having a way to track the package's progress to me, they'll go back into the available list for others to claim.
3. Please, when you send the PJs, use delivery confirmation or a tracking number so we can, you know, track the package if it should go awry. If you have them shipped directly from an online company, keep track of your invoice for similar reasons. I will also put tracking numbers on outgoing perfume so you can know when to expect it to arrive.
4. Flannel, fleece, and footies are love. If you feel compelled to send more than the required two PJs per bottle donation, I'd be happy, happy, happy to send them along to the charity.The GoodsAll items are tested once, cleanly, and are full unless otherwise noted.5 ML BOTTLES- 2 Donated PJs each
