Newton Pens Scholarship Update – November Pen Winner – Website

Hi Everybody!

Another month has closed (and it’s finally winter!) and more money raised for the Newton Pens Scholarships.  We had 25 contributions this month (thanks!) and when I put my hand in the hat (random.org) to pick a pen winner (thanks for contributing to the scholarship fund folks) I pull out number 12!!  Romona A.!  You’ve won a pen credit ($225- free nib grind – free shipping)!  Congrats!  And thanks so much for contributing to the scholarship fund and helping us to help kids with their futures.

Thank you all so much for all you’ve done in the last few years.  You all raised $219 this month.  Hopefully we’ll raise more next month and have more to give to some deserving students at the end of the school year.  We’ve raised $2957.00 for the year!  Thanks!

Remember, if you want to get some postcards they’re on sale.  If you buy 2 sets or more they’re $5 per set until the end of the year.  I really want to move some of these out of inventory so we can get some more sets made up.  I have lots of really great art lined up.

Every penny raised goes towards scholarships for high school students.  You can learn about the scholarships and rules to the raffle here.  The raffle is free to enter by just sending a note to me:
PO BOX  6084
Hot Springs, AR. 71902

You are also entered if you buy postcards or pocket notebooks.

Here’s what we have left.  You can buy sets from here.

If you want pocket notebooks you can buy those here.

When you buy a set of cards or a notebook, you’ll be given a number in the order that you bought your items.  At the end of the month I draw from those numbers and pick a winner.  You can’t win if you don’t enter!  🙂

And enjoy the cold weather!

All profits will go to Hope For Haiti Hurricane Matthew relief.

October Pen Winner – Happy Halloween

Hi Everybody!  Sorry I’m a couple days late making the scholarship announcements.

Halloween had me really busy this year.  My kids wanted custom costumes from the movie Aliens.  They can’t watch the movie yet, but the monsters are still cool.

Here we have a facehugger –

And here we have a Xenomorph –

So they were really happy with what they got though it was too hot to wear them for the entire night.  🙂

So back to the scholarships and pen give-away.  This month we had 49 donations!  Thanks so much!  You all helped to raise $818.67 this month!  The scholarship fund is up to $2791.69.  Thank you all so much!

The winner of a $225 credit, picked with random.org, is #1 – Mary G!  Congrats Mary!

Fundraising for November has started.  If you want a chance at a free custom pen all you have to do is buy some postcards, notebooks, make a small donation, or enter for free by sending a note to my PO BOX.  Read all the rules here.

Scholarship Fund Raising, Pens, Postcards and Notebooks

Hi Everybody!  It’s time to announce a winner from last month’s drawing – and we had a busy month with 60 entries (that includes multiple entries, too).

We raised $645 with the sale of postcards and notebooks in September.  Thank you all so much!

Using random.org to pick a winner from all 60 entries last month, #44 wins!  Congrats to Hazel L., who wins a $225 credit with free grind and shipping as thanks for participating and supporting the scholarships!  I’ll send you an email soon.

If you haven’t seen yet we are now selling little pocket notebooks to raise money for the scholarships alongside the postcards.

You can look at all of those here-

All the money raised from sales and donations will go to high school kids to help pay for college – whether it’s books, tuition, groceries or gasoline.
