Happy Spring

Healing Ceilings treesToday is the first day of Spring…..only obvious if you actually look at the calendar, BUT still-Happy Spring EVERYONE! We are bustling through preparations and plans for POP-UP Sunday’s Kick-Off Party, April 26th, at Ornamentea in downtown Raleigh.

Healing Ceilings and Sweetwater Brewing Company will be our first 2015 charitable partners. Delicious beer will be available to anyone making a donation. If you have not heard about the amazing work of Healing Ceilings, please read more about their mission here. The president and founder, Amy Jo Edwards, set out to change the boring, sterile environment of local cancer treatment facilities after her husband’s second battle with cancer a few years ago. Her mission to bring visual vacations and inspiration to people going through treatment has changed many lives in our community. We cannot wait to break previous donation records and help spread this awesome message-ART HEALS!

POP-UP Sunday turns THREE

Since the holidays, we have been hibernating, brainstorming and planning for the third year of POP-UP Sunday. The growth of this “little” community event has far exceeded our expectations in two years. We raised thousands of dollars for local charities and watched lots of small businesses grow their own network of customers and fans. With so many goals met, we must dream bigger!

Announcements will be made throughout February about vendors, charitable partners, yummy food, sponsorship and more. The event dates will be the fourth Sunday of each month, April through November. That’s right, mark your calendar for April 26th and tell all your friends-we cannot wait to see what a difference we can make in our community this year!

Happy Holidays from POP-UP Sunday

POP-UP Sunday 2014 is a wrap and we have a happiness hangover as we reflect on what an amazing difference we have made in the community. There are way too many people to thank, but we would like to give a big hug to everyone that shopped, vended, fed, volunteered and donated. Together, in 2014, we have raised over $3,500 for Habitat for Humanity, The Green Chair Project, 2nd Chance Pet Adoptions, Big Brothers and Big Sisters of the Triangle, Hospice, Urban Ministries, InterAct and SPCA. We have helped local businesses grow, met tons of new friends and even gotten published in a national magazine. Everyone at POP-UP Sunday headquarters is humbled by the support and we are already planning big things for next year! As we hibernate through the winter, we will be posting events and taking notes on things to make POP-UP Sunday 2015 even better. See you April 26th for the kick off party and have a safe and amazing holiday season. Thank YOU!
