March Madness! March 02 2015

 

Ahhh March, you bring a smile to my face and hope to my heart. By now most of us are totally over winter...totally. So much so that Queen Elsa was even arrested recently for her devious wintry mix in North Georgia. Read more here. March has so much to offer, personally we have a slew of birthdays, there are a ton of basketball games to consume and St. Patrick's Day! Below are just a few of the things we have coming up this month, we think you'll agree they're pretty exciting!!

Team Harley



This year Poison Apple Apothecary has chosen to support the Great Strides Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in it's endeavor to find a cure for the disease. We have a personal connection to a beautiful young lady that has been living with CF and have decided to create this opportunity to do some fundraising towards her team. You'll notice a $2 price increase and that is because all profits from this collection will be donated directly to Great Strides Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.  We want to do as much as possible. This promotion will run through the end of March. For more information visit the Great Strides site here.

As you can see from the title we are supporting Harley who is a very dear family member. Her friends have been known to describe her as the type of friend who is up for anything at any time. She is always ready and willing to try something new and her attitude is definitely not one of a ‘sick person.’ At 28 years old, she fights CF every day with a positive attitude, and make something that’s so hard look almost easy. She was diagnosed at 7.5 months old and for the past 2 years, she has been asked by the LA chapter of the CF Foundation to speak at the annual walk. She usually talks about going to sleep-away camp as a child, studying in Australia as a college student, and moving from NY to LA to pursue her dream in TV—things that seem fairly standard in today’s day and age, but not when you have CF. CF has never stopped her. It’s only propelled her forward that much more, and she won’t stop until a cure is found for CF. Her dream is that  every young child diagnosed is able to pursue their dreams like she does. Please join us in the fight. 

Great Strides is the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's largest national fundraising event. Each year, more than 125,000 people participate in hundreds of walks across the country to raise funds for cystic fibrosis research and drug development.

Great Strides continues to gain momentum, as do our research efforts and the progress we’ve made in the search for a cure. The CF Foundation has raised and invested hundreds of millions of dollars to support the development of new CF drugs and therapies. But the lives of people with this disease are still cut far too short. We need the public’s continued support to fulfill our mission of finding a cure and improving the quality of life of those with the disease.

 

New Season, New Scents...

Last month we announced two new scents due out this Spring. A few customers were lucky enough to get a sneak peek with their orders last month. Now you can purchase a sample to check it out yourself before the release at the end of March. Like us on Facebook and Twitter to be the first to know about the release date. 

Secret Garden

Imagine walking through a lush grove. This refined yet inexplicably simple fragrance is soft, green and fresh lending to a powerful fragrance all its own.

Temptation

It’s not always easy restraining yourself from what you desire. This irresistible combination is unisex making it even more tempting. With exotic notes of amber, cinnamon, vanilla, myrrh, neroli and patchouli you will become the temptation of others.
