Against my better judgement I went into the mall yesterday to pick up a couple Christmas gifts. I tried my best to remain merry and look for positives in the situation. Upon arriving I witnessed at least three incidents of parking lot rage. Inside I was greeted by aggressive sales associates, people pushing and bumping into each other... An overall sense of Christmas Commercialism. I am not writing this to be offensive, as I'm sure there are people out there who enjoy this side of the Holidays.
December 25, 2015 will be my daughter's third Christmas, and my son's second. My daughter is just starting to grasp what is taking place all around her, and my son really has no idea what is going on. My point here is, my children's interpretation of Christmas will be what my Husband and I teach them. We can teach them that Christmas is about having a pile of presents as tall as the tree, or we can teach them that Christmas is a good time to give to others and support their local community. I was raised that it is better to give, than receive. I was also taught that it is better to spend your hard earned dollar locally, where it will have a larger impact on your community.
How wonderful is it when someone presents a gift to you, that they have spent hours toiling over? Or they have really put thought into, and present something locally sourced? The impact of this spreads much farther than most people realize.
This leads me into Cinderella Clean gift certificates. Thank you for purchasing these from Cinderella Clean! The obvious reason is some lucky family will get the gift of a clean home! The not so obvious is the impact of supporting a local small business like Cinderella Clean. It keeps some really awesome people employed and doing what they love. In turn, they are supporting our local economy! Thank you to all our clients new and old, your continued support of Cinderella Clean is much appreciated!
I am very much looking forward to Christmas day to spend some time with my family, but I must admit I'm excited to announce the winner from our Facebook contest! If you haven't yet entered, please go to the Cinderella Clean Facebook page and enter there. If I don't post again before the big day, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas!
Whether you decide to use Cinderella Clean for regular service, a one time clean like a move out, or a rental clean. You can take comfort in the fact that your clean will be performed by a trained professional, only using products that will not harm our environment, or leave any unwanted chemicals in your home. We use locally sourced products from the Soap Exchange in Victoria. The products from the Soap Exchange are 100% biodegradable and made in Canada! All cleaning products are dispensed, and used in refillable containers, not just the dispensing bottles used in your home or office, but the large bulk containers are used over and over! Cinderella Clean also use Norwex products from a local distributor here in Victoria. Norwex has a large line of high quality household products. We use their Micro-Fiber Antibacterial Cleaning and Polishing cloths that only use water as the cleaning agent! Cinderella Clean is working hard to lessen our environmental footprint, while providing the people of Victoria a quality service! We at Cinderella Clean take pride in this approach.
Well, in a little over 11 days from now a lot of our Christmas Day festivities will be in full swing! If your home is anything like ours, the words joy, happiness, family, mess, unorganized, chaos are all ways I would describe my home during the holidays! Could you use some help during this hectic time of year? Cinderella Clean is quickly filling up for pre-Christmas cleans but we still have openings. Maybe you could use some help organizing after Christmas? Or in early January after the dust has settled? Cinderella Clean can help you clean and organize. We are here to help!
As you may or may not know, Cinderella Clean has a Facebook page, why am I bringing this up? Well, if you haven't been over to the page yet you might be missing out! There is a contest running on the Cinderella Clean page to win free cleaning for the month of January!! As for the title of this Blog post, all I mean is I can't believe the attention that the Cinderella Clean Christmas contest is creating! It's awesome!!! Huge THANK YOU to everyone who has shared the contest on their own Facebook wall, liked the Cinderella Clean page, liked the contest, and all the wonderful comments people have left. Thank you so much!
