I’ve got a few quick updates for you.
SLIDING SCALE PRICING
After launching, I received some (great!) feedback about the pricing and item descriptions. Some people found the pricing confusing, others were rattled by it, and for many, it brought up a lot of feelings leading to shopper’s paralysis! While disruption of the capitalist system is absolutely a goal of Sum Love, it must be done in a way that builds community, support, healing,… and sales! After all, we can fun justice initiatives with no money. So, I want you to know I have heard you and I have adjusted it according to the feedback to make it easier for you to understand as you shop. Here’s the deets:
**The “Give Sum Love” price is our buy one give one option. For every purchase that you make using the “Give Sum Love” price, we give one of the same item away to BIPOC, disabled, or low income folks.
**If you would prefer to simply purchase one without funding one to give away, just use the “Get Sum Love” option. This is the familiar way to shop, buying the one item you wish to purchase for yourself or someone else.
**If you are in the Knoxville, TN area and are in need of an item but are unable financially to purchase, please send us an email and we will do our best to help you. This is made possible through people purchasing using the “Give Sum Love” prices.
2021 LOVE BOX CLUB / BATTLEFIELD FARM
**I adjusted and created more options for the 2021 Love Box Club, so you can now choose 1-5 items per month, with no commitment for the entire year.
**10% of each Love Box sale is donated to Battlefield Farm
LOVE SUM MOMMAS COMMUNITY CARE
I updated the shop to allow different contribution levels of sponsorship. Now, you are able to choose to cover 10% ($33), 25%, 50%, or 100% ($333) of the cost of the care package cost for one momma. There are several items in the shop that find this program, including the Soakin Salts in the heart jars and the mini jars of Hojari Frankincense Resin. They are designated in the item details of each item.
That’s all for now!
I’m always happy to hear from you, so please reach out if you have questions or comments. Happy shopping! Finally, please make time to rest and to show yourself Sum Love 💕
