We really enjoyed playing cupid last year and it warmed our hearts knowing our little packages of goodies brought smiles to deserving souls during the gray days of February.  Since it was our very first Cupid Call Campaign we were truly overwhelmed with the response rate.  Because of the large volume of nominations we were limited to selecting  only a percent of the nominees due to the cost of shipping all the packages.  In hopes of being able to shoot more .

It’s been a couple weeks since we sent out a load of love to deserving souls and I must say we’re tickled pink to hear some of the stories about our surprise packages.  We originally planned on sending 100 packages, but due to the volume of nominees we ended up wrapping up around 180 cupid calls.

I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before but Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite  holidays.  Not because I like roses, fancy restaurants or chocolate (well, I do like chocolate) but because I like to surprise some of my girlfriends by sending them little treats in the mail.  I like to look at February 14th as an opportunity to bring a bit of color and joy into those grey cold days of February… because who .
