This week's update from the Red Pen Travelers workshop is packed with exciting opportunities and events!
Make your purchase count: This week, I've got TWO ways for you to support valuable work. My friend Rebekah Benge's home was destroyed a few days ago by the Hidden Pines wildfire near Bastrop, Texas. She was just married to Cody earlier this year, and the fire devoured their newlywed home and belongings.
I want to be part of helping the Benges get back on their feet, so for the next few weeks I'll be donating 50% of the purchase price of each Texas State Lines traveler's notebook to Rebekah and Cody's recovery fund. Plus, I'll add a hometown heart for free, so you can mark your own special spot in Texas! No coupon code needed; simply note the town name in your order notes and I'll stamp it for you at no extra charge.
The Heart For Africa traveler’s notebooks will continue to be available throughout October, with sales helping to fund a November mission to Uganda. I'm already planning a new Border Crossings project for November and December, so stay tuned for that announcement soon.
Red Pen Postcard Project: I love interesting state and city postcards, especially if they have clever or beautiful designs. (I really enjoy the vintage style that spell out the city name!) And if the note on the other side includes quirky local trivia from YOU? Even better!
Send me a postcard commemorating your state or local area, and I'll send you a treat in return. I'll also enter each postcard I receive in a giveaway and the sender will win their very own Red Pen Traveler's Notebook! I'd love to pick YOUR postcard, so mail it to:
PO Box 66722
Baton Rouge LA 70896
I'll collect the postcards over the next month or so and choose a winner on Thanksgiving weekend.
Coming very soon: The Red Pen Travelers Instagram following is edging closer and closer to 500, and as soon as we get there, boy have I got a bundle of treats for some lucky someone! If you're not already on the party train over there, get to it so that 500 (and the crystal-clear prizes!) will get here even quicker.
Until next week, travel light!
