April Charity of the Month: Dedicated to Japan

Japan was hit by one of the largest earthquakes ever recorded on March 11. The magnitude (9.0) of the quake spawned a deadly tsunami that slammed into the small island nation, leaving huge devastation in its tragic wake. Thousands of people are dead and many more are still missing or injured; almost half a million people are homeless.
Japan has often donated when other countries have experienced disasters, such as when Hurricane Katrina impacted the United States. We are extremely happy to announce that we have teamed up with UMCOR, a charitable organization that is supporting the victims of this tragic event by providing assistance includes providing direct emergency relief, medical services, emotional counseling, and food delivery and storage.
We are raising money to support UMCOR’s efforts through our retail store and online donations. For every order placed, we will donate a dollar. We hope you consider matching our donation at the checkout when you place orders from us.

Charity of the Month: March of Dimes

This update is about our monthly charitable gift giving program.  Every month we pick a new charity to support by raising money and awareness.  For all orders placed on Frame USA we donate a dollar and encourage our customers to match our donation.  Throughout the years of this program we have been able to support many different charities such as the American Cancer Society, Autism Speaks, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, National Down Syndrome Association, Tony Snow Scholarship Fund, and many more.  For March, we currently collecting money for the March of Dimes. 

As the month draws to end, we wanted to share some of the events we are currently throwing for our employees and staff.  The first event is our Penny Wars.  We have divided our company into three teams.  The concept is simple – pennies and dollar bills add to team total where as silver coins subtract from the team total.  The team with the highest total receives a delicious Pizza Party, or more importantly, bragging rights.  Here is a picture of our progress:

In addition to the Penny Wars, we are having a bowling party and an exclusive raffle that will give employees the chance to pie managers (and even the CEO) in the face!  The pie in the face and bowling event is this upcoming Tuesday (April 5th).  We will be posting pictures from the event, so make sure to check back soon!

Featured Frame: Antique Royal Series Artwork: Grandmother’s Legacy

The Featured Frame this week comes from Delilah who gave us a great story behind her framed art.  This framed piece is from our Antique Series and holds a beautiful piece from Delilah Young’s Art Studio called “Grandmothers Legacy”.  These are quilts her mother made by hand.  In fact, one of them was gifted to her as wedding gift in 1975.  The painting includes her grandmother’s bonnet, her other grandmother’s rocking chair, her mother’s basket, her dad’s old watering can and her Bible.

3/3/11 Update:  It was Delilah’s grandmother who created these lovely quilts and many others.  Her mother did do a little quilting but her expertise was creating wedding dresses.
