Kilted To Kick Cancer .. And More!

Recommended Posts

Hi All!

I wanted to let you know of a project I am working on for September. I am teaming up with Magnum boots to sponsor a Kilted to Kick Cancer month - we are helping to raise awareness of male specific cancers with The Happy Medic (http://thehappymedic.com) and MotorCop (http://motorcopblog.com/2011/07/18/kilted-to-kick-cancer/). We are doing fundraising and giveaways for all of September ...

... which leads into September also being my Kilted for Kids' Cancer month where I raise money for Give Kids' the World Village and also give away free (or with customer's donation) kids' kilts all month long. (more info here: http://www.altkilt.com/cancer)

... and thirdly: I am working on changing some of the misconception about my business. I want people to learn about what it means to create a handmade custom kilt from scratch and that by small business, we mean 3 people who work really hard to provide customer service that rivals the big guys. I am going to be doing a photo blog post that is the step-by-step process - from bolt of fabric to finished kilt.

We have been rocking busy this year (again) but since I have hired a few employees, it has been getting better all around. Melanie is still our Office Manager and answers all of your emails. Jenn now manages our Etsy Steamshop and accessories line and I have an awesome stitcher that is doing some of the pre-pleating... I still finish every kilt we make and check it for quality before it ships out.

Thank you for your continued support for Alt.Kilt!

Jeanie,

Thanks for your support of awareness of male specific cancers. This spring I found myself in good company, so to speak, with the other 200,000 men who have or will be diagnosed this year with prostate cancer. Fortunately, it was an early detection. Three weeks ago I had a robotic assisted prostatectomy at the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix. It's cutting state technology (pun intended). Now I'm getting on with life! I have great doctors!

The moral of the story is early detection. Deal with it, and get on with life!
