Pink Slipper Project Warms Hearts and Toes of Women and Children Spending Winter in Shelters

Colonial Heights, VA (October 16, 2009) Women from across the nation unite to remind abused women and children they are not forgotten.

Each year, domestic abuse forces hundreds of thousands of women and children to leave their homes and seek safety and healing in shelters across the United States. While shelters can fill basic needs and provide counseling services, often the most difficult challenges faced by those who use them are recognizing their own worth and feeling accepted by society.

This year, the Pink Slipper Project is making a difference in the lives of these women and children by warming their hearts and their toes with handcrafted slippers – practical reminders that someone cared enough to make something special just for them. A joint venture of Make Mine Pink, an online shopping and networking site for women, and Quilt n’ Stitch Marketplace, the premier quilting and needlework community on the Web, the Pink Slipper Project is working closely with Enchanted Makeovers, an internationally recognized non-profit organization that transforms shelters for women and children into places of peace and possibilities. Together, their goal is to provide warm and beautifully designed slippers to the residents of each makeover project this winter, along with as many other women and children’s shelters as possible.

Joyce Lucas, founder of Make Mine Pink and Quilt ‘n Stitch Marketplace was inspired to start the Pink Slipper Project while working with Terry Grahl of Enchanted Makeovers. Lucas states, “It was through Terry’s vision to help improve living spaces and children’s lives in shelters that I began to get a much clearer picture of what we could do to make a difference while at the same time filling a very basic need.”

Within hours of making the first slipper pattern available on the Pink Slipper blog in August, women from all over the US had downloaded it and wanted to take part. Some stitched slippers, some knit or crocheted slippers and others donated fabrics and supplies. The one common thread was they all wanted to help make someone’s life a little better.
The project is just slippers away from meeting its first challenge of supplying slippers for a large women’s shelter that houses 80 women and 40 children. Many other challenges have come into the program since its inception, including one for a girls’ shelter in Detroit that houses approximately 138 teenage girls.

Only a few weeks old, the Pink Slipper Project has already gained international attention. Lucas was recently contacted by Renee Glass whose Australian organization, Slippers with Soul, provides slippers to women who are ill or in assisted living facilities. In 15 months, Glass’s program has provided 8,000 pair of slippers, with a goal of a million.
Lucas hopes to see the same success here. She states, “As long as we’re able and as long as we have loving and giving participants, we’ll continue to grow this wonderful program. A project that unites women all over the nation for the good of others has to be a success. There’s no other possible outcome.”

If you are involved with a women’s shelter that would benefit from the Pink Slipper Project, please contact them at with your shelter’s needs.

If you would like to help warm the hearts and toes of women and children this winter by providing slippers or donating suplies to make slippers,  please visit for details on how you can help or contact Joyce Lucas at

litFUSE Publicity Group Announces The Work at Home Girls

Seattle, WA – October 5, 2009 Do you own or run a home based business? Would you like a mentor? Your own personal coach? Then keep reading!

Did You Know that Most Businesses Fail Within the First Five Years?

The Work at Home Girls share their Simple Secrets to make your business a SUCCESS! For your business to succeed you need to find a specific need and fill it. Successful business owners  are very focused and many (if not all) have a mentor they can turn to with questions and challenges.

If you work from home-or want to-the Work at Home Girls can be your mentors. Together, Jill Hart and Mary Byers have over 20 years combined experience running a business from home. One is a techie (Jill, founder of Christian Work at Home Moms and author of So You Want to be a Work-at-Home Mom) and the other is a wordsmith (Mary, freelance editor and author of five books, including Making Work at Home Work).They’ve teamed up to share what they wish mentors had shared with them when they started their businesses over a decade ago.
Why do you need a mentor?

Why do you need a mentor?
1. Mentors shorten the learning curve.
2. Mentors stimulate new thoughts and ideas.
3. Mentors have learned from the school of hard-knocks and are willing to pass along what they know, saving you from making frustrating-and possibly expensive-mistakes.
4. Because they have walked in your shoes, mentors understand like no one else does.
5. Mentors push you to achieve more than you thought possible.
6. When you need someone to bounce ideas off of, mentors rock!
7. Mentors can help you make more money.
8. Working from home can sometimes be lonely. Mentors make it less so.
9. Mentors encourage you to pay attention to what’s important.
10. Mentors believe in helping others succeed.

WAHM-Articles Shares Tips to Make Summer Sales Sizzle for Work at Home Moms

Work at home moms (WAHMs) often find that as outside temperatures heat up, their revenues cool down. It’s been called summer slowdown or summer slump, but knowing the phenomenon is so common it even has a name doesn’t make it any easier to watch your profits virtually vanish for two months of the year.

Denise Willms, a work-at-home-mom who publishes articles and tips written by moms for moms at her website, offers seven tips for work at home moms who want to keep their summer sales sizzling, even in the current economy.

1. Write and distribute articles on a regular basis. Any business owner can write articles that build their credibility and maintain visibility, then have those articles published where their target markets will find them.

2. Give your website a good once-over. Are you losing sales because your website visitors can’t figure out what to do next, or how to contact you? A website review can be as easy as asking your grandmother or a non-Internet savvy friend to do a specific task on your website then watching which obstacles they run into.

3. Create and sell your own information product. Cost-conscious shoppers are looking for ways to save money by doing things themselves. You can benefit by packaging your own expertise into a product that helps them, and then selling it.

4. Review your paid advertising. Advertising online and off is an important component of branding your business and staying visible to your audience. However, even in an age of cost-cutting, cheap advertising is not always better. Make sure your paid ad space is where your potential customers will find it.

5. Add another revenue stream to your business. Having multiple streams of income, whether you’re selling your own product or someone else’s as a direct sales consultant, will help ensure your revenue never dries up.

6. Add Virtual Assistant services to your current business. Many businesses are laying off employees and turning to Virtual Assistants, administrative professionals who provide a myriad of support services from their own home offices on a contractual basis, for help with their business needs.

7. Consider hiring a business coach for one or two coaching sessions this summer. The right business coach can help keep your business on track through the summer months by holding you accountable for your results and offering a different perspective on what you’re currently doing.

To help stop summer slowdown now for your work-at-home-mom business, visit and click on the link to enter the Saving Summer Giveaway. When you enter, you’ll be eligible to win prizes to help you stop summer slowdown. You’ll find more business tips and advice by reading the articles published at . Or sign up for your free author’s account and discover how writing and submitting articles can help you get more customers and clients for your WAHM business.
