The Joy of Giving

7 months ago 283 Views No comments

I wanted to take a moment to celebrate…to celebrate our RB team, our customers, and answered prayers. I will never forget the prayers I prayed out on our apartment balcony as I searched for the idea, for my purpose and next career chapter. In that prayer, I knew I wanted to do something that could affect others in a positive way, but I just couldn’t put my finger on exactly how. I am so honored to say that RuffleButts has been an amazing blessing, in so many ways, but it has been such a pleasant surprise to watch how a for-profit business can benefit others in a very not-for-profit way.

First, I will celebrate that we were able to donate more than $250,000 of children’s apparel to the victims of Hurricane Florence. We set the goal of $200k, but with heart and determination, and the help of our social fans, we surpassed that goal. I’m also happy to report that it’s currently being distributed by World Vision USA {www.worldvision.org/disaster-relief-news-stories} in the areas affected. When I started this business, I had a hard time envisioning selling $250,000 in goods. To be here today, able to give away that amount to those in need is truly an amazing feeling

I know it may be a bit premature, being that we just started Q4, but I also want to celebrate our RuffleButts customers and RB team. This year has been a crazy one, to say the least. While we are only a few weeks into Q4, our company has experienced growth unsurpassed in the history of our company. Our team has worked their tails off to continue delivering a golden-rule experience for our customer, while our customers have rallied behind our little family business and made this all possible.

While I’m often asked if I envisioned all of this when starting RuffleButts almost 12 years ago, it’s actually a tough question to answer. I dreamed it, I hoped for it, and knew deep down that it was all possible, but envisioning something that is beyond your wildest dreams is a tough task. It was just this week that I looked up from my desk out to our team of over 40 people (40 truly wonderful, hard-working, inspiring people) that I just got a little grin. While I never quite pictured what it would look like to be a part of something this cool, I feel eternally grateful that I get to!

Getting dolls to children in chemotherapy

When Mark originally read this story on Fox News, he knew this is something we would want to support. Childhood cancer has been something close to our hearts ever since Layla Grace put it there about 7 years ago. Just 2 weeks ago we were a sponsor of Cooks Children's Hospital The Blast here in Ft. Worth, so when we read about Bella's goal, we were determined to help her any way we could. So...I reached out to Bella and her momma to see what we could do and we are really excited to announce it today!

Bella has worked really hard over the past few weeks to hand-make hundreds of bracelets for our customers. RuffleButts purchased these bracelets in your honor and will be shipping them to you FREE with your RuffleButts and/or RuggedButts order! Just be sure to use the code BELLASGIFT at checkout on the website to receive your free gift.

My personal prayer for 2016

3 years ago 428 Views No comments

For the past 2 weeks I have been holding one-on-one meetings with every person that is employed at our RuffleButts headquarters to discuss their feedback and goals for 2016. One of my many goals for 2016 is improved and increased communication with those in my life, both personal and professional. This is step one. As I have been processing all of this communication, which has been totally wonderful by the way, it brought me back to my own goals for this year. The post below may sound a little cheesy to some, but those who know me well know exactly what I am saying here. So anyhow, I am sharing publicly and ignoring any fear of judgement that lies within. At 36, judgement has lost most of its power (most, not all). While I likely thought most of this ten years ago, I definitely would not have published it.

Dear God,

For 2016 this is what I pray here at RuffleButts...

Please use me, every part of me, to do Your work. To help those around me in whatever way I can. To notice those who need the attention; empower those who may need the confidence; to teach those who need the wisdom; to lift up those who experience doubt; to push those that may need the motivation; to challenge those who may need the humbleness; to listen to those who need to be heard; to share Your love in everything I do.

Please help me to show my gratitude to You and to those around me on a daily basis. I am eternally grateful for my life, my family, this business, for the people in my life, for the comfort of a heated home, for the daily use of running water, for the gift to impact others, for the blessing to pay it forward, for your grace when I make mistakes and most of all for Jesus.

Please continue to guide me in this business to do with it what You have always intended. I can not put into words my gratitude for RuffleButts, a literal answered prayer. For the amazing people You have sent into my life to walk this journey with me, to challenge me, to inspire me, to teach me. I only pray that I have given them a small faction of what they have given me. Thank You most of all for blessing me with a built-in business partner to make it all happen. Lord, You know our story would be so very different without him!

God, please guide us in communication, the communications with our customers and the communications with each other. It is so often we assume someone knows something that we have not said. Please lead us to share the joy of this business with as many people as possible. Help us to touch our customers with happiness; to make a grandmother smile with joy; to give the gift of precious memories to many, many mothers; to make a little girl sparkle with confidence in her new ruffles; to shower little boys in the compliments that will lead them to strong young men. We are so extremely grateful to see these smiles coming back to us in photos and letters from our customers. There is no bigger joy!

Please continue to guide me in how to use this business to help others. Please lead us in our efforts with Cooks Children's Hospital and multiply our gifts. We are so very grateful for the blessing to bless others. I know Your plans are very big in this area and I just pray that I am able to fulfill them to the max!

Lord, please prepare us for this AMAZING year ahead, because I know we are ready to take it on!

With LOVE,

Amber
