When Life Hands You a Lemon, Make Pink Lemonade
When life hands you lemons, make lemonade… isn’t that how the saying goes?
Recently someone contacted me about making some breast cancer awareness themed wands. In a rare moment of soft-heartedness, I agreed to do the work without charging the customer upfront (something I never do!). I even agreed to do the order as a rush, since the wands were needed by the end of the month.
One very hectic weekend’s worth of work yield six lovely wands all with a breast cancer awareness theme…
After all the time and work, the customer failed to follow through with the purchase. Normally, I’m pretty annoyed when a sale falls through. This time, however, I’m turning someone else’s failure to the advantage of as many people as possible. I’ll be putting the wands up for sale in my online shop
and for every wand sold, I’ll make a $5.00 donation to either the American Cancer Society or the Susan G. Komen foundation. Would anyone like to help me turn a lemon of a sale into some fabulous pink lemonade?
