We've been collecting donations from every order placed so far this week, and there's still plenty of time to do your part by placing an order before end of business on Friday. A percentage of total sales will be donated to the charities you voted for in November: The ASPCA and Autism Speaks will each receive $1000, while the American Diabetes Association and National MS Society will each receive $250.

The remainder of our Charity Week donation will go to the winner you voted for:
CureSearch for Children's Cancer!

Thank you to everyone that has placed an order so far this week. You're helping to cure children's cancer, fund autism research, save animals, raise diabetes awareness and support families affected by MS, all just by placing an order! Nominated by Allied Employees, each of these charities deserves all the help they can get to continue doing the amazing work through the holiday season and into the New Year.

Please help us to spread hope to children, families and our furry friends this holiday season and support these worthy charities by placing an order this week! We will announce the final total donation collected on our website, blog and in next month's Newsletter, so check your inboxes in the coming weeks!



Joke of the Month!


After being away on business for a week before Christmas, Tom thought it would be nice to bring his wife a little gift.

"How about some perfume?" he asked the cosmetics clerk. She showed him a bottle costing $50.

"That's a bit much," said Tom, so she returned with a smaller bottle for $30.

"Thats still quite a bit," Tom groused.

Growing disgusted, the clerk brought out a tiny $15 bottle.

Tom grew agitated, "What I mean," he said, "is I'd like to see something real cheap."

So the clerk handed him a mirror.

It was Christmas and the judge was in a merry mood as he asked the prisoner,"What are you charged with?"

"Doing my Christmas shopping early", replied the defendant.

"That's no offense", said the judge. "How early were you doing this shopping?"

"Before the store opened."
