Mangers for a Better Christmas

We are done with mangers for this year. Thanks so much for all of your support! If you'd be interested next year please leave us a comment with your email.

If this is the first time that you've heard about or are just now seeing our mangers, let me give you a little background. A few years ago I had this thought that I needed to start building mangers and selling them to help others in need. I had no idea how to make them and let the thought slide. Then last year the idea came back and wouldn't go away. With the help of my husband we came up with a model and I knew that this was something that would help us as a family come closer to feeling the real meaning of Christmas. I posted the idea on Instagram and started taking orders. I really only thought that we'd make maybe 50 at the most, but within the first 24 hours I could tell that we needed a lot more supplies. We really were touched at how many people supported our idea through purchases, reposting, helping with the work load, or just kind words. We ended up making over 125 mangers and raising over $1200 to help other families in our area. We know that this will now continue to be a tradition for our family and have started building once again.

With trying to sell our house and other things that are keeping us busy right now we may have to limit how many are made. We have roughly 60 that should be ready by next week so please let us know as soon as you can and we will work hard to fill all the orders. All of the money earned will go towards helping other families or individuals have a Christmas they wouldn't be able to have on their own. For this reason we will try to fulfill all the orders that come in.

There are a few options this year that are different than last year. On the right column you'll see two different paypal options (you don't have to have a paypal account to use these). The mangers will cost $20 each and if shipping is needed it will be $15 extra. They come with a gray stain on them and they measure approximately 7 1/2 wide x 19 1/2" long x 7" tall. It also comes with a little bag of raffia and piece of cloth.
