KW: Tell us about youself Colinda
CA: Thank you Kickwatcher for this interview. I am a poet, a wordsmith and an artist and I have dedicated my time and energy to creating wonderful authentic prose that uplifts the human spirit and expresses the deepest emotions we all experience.For me, coping with tragedy and conquering fears always begins and ends with the ink of the pen and the smooth surface of a sheet of paper. And I do believe that there are emotional healing powers when we receive a gift or read a positive poem expressing the care and concern from a loving friend or family member. That's why I am launching this crowdfunding campaign to share my healing poetry and work to inspire those who need a pick me up while helping their friends connect with them. When you support this campaign you will be helping to develop a dream, with true expression from the heart.
KW: Tell us a bit more about the hamper packs, Colinda.
CA: The Emotions gift hampers are based on the emotion stirring poetry of my book series and will include plenty of goodies from food and wine, scented candles and jewllery to T-shirts with inspirational quotes taken from the books, cards and prints with messages of faith and hope, and one of my favourites a ‘book’ tote bag with inspirational quotes.The hampers are created for every occassion and can be naughty or nice, with options including candy, fruit, curiosities or stuffed toys.
Hampers are great for every life occassion

KW: That's fascinating, tell us more about what's inside these hampers.
CA: Every Hamper is made to meet the needs of the person receiving the gift, we work with a number of partners who can print specially designed T-shirts, picture frames and wall hangings, all made to the highest standards. We also work with artisans who produce beautiful jewellery including crystals and organic materials, some of which can be engraved with your personal message.
Of course we can send out standard food/fruit/candy hampers with a beautiful card and message that will brighten up anyone's day. Every hamper will include 1 or more copies of my Emotions, the poetry book series , that provides a beautiful backdrop to our human emotions, inspiring and connecting us all with the beautiful words and expressions that we all need to hear sometimes.
KW: That's a lot of wonderful gifts we can offer to our loved ones. tell us how we can help make this dream a reality for you Colinda.
CA: We are currenty providing hampers on a regular basis to a small number of customers in our local area and are ready to expand the line and incorporate more ideas as we reach more customers. We are talking to local hospitals and care homes to provide partnerships where we can provide a great service to reidents and those visiting, and we are also planning on moving more into the wedding, Christening and Bar Mitzvah market as well.
Our goal is to reach $60,000 – which will be used to develop our website and order taking system, produce the recycled hampers that we are passionate about, and also to cover the costs of the marketing and promotion needed to get the message out.
With your support we can provide a much needed product in a way that really connects with people and leaves with a lasting memory of a great gift and knowing that they are loved and being thought of by others. We need your help and support to bring this great service to everyone who needs it.
- Imagine a family member or dear friend in hospital, receiving a necklace with a message of love and support.
- Imagine a sibling going through a hard time receiving a T-shirt with a message of hope
- Imagine how excited your partner will be when you present them with a pack of goodies expressing how your love for them grows each and every day
