Last week I showed you 4 shades that will be available in the upcoming Elevation Polish 4th Annual Auction and Sales for Charity. I was asked to cover a few more shades that will be available, so I’ll be showing you those as well as revisiting the previous 4 shades I showed you. I’ll also be going over what this event is about, who the charity is, and a little more info. Even though it was in the previous post, it’s for charity and the info needs to be repeated.
This year the charity that donations will go to is Chrestomathy, Inc.
Who is Chrestomathy, Inc?
Chrestomathy is a day training and habilitation service for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The three program sites are located in Minneapolis, Minnesota and in the nearby suburbs of Eden Prairie and Burnsville, MN. Unlike most other programs serving Elevation Polishes area, Chrestomathy is a specialized and relatively small company. Founded in 1985, their success can be attributed to their commitment to excellence, commitment to working with individuals with complex needs and their positive, proactive approach to working with the individuals they serve.
Here is some information from Elevation Polish regarding past events they’ve done for the Elevation Polish Auction and Sales Charity:
In 2013, We were able to donate $9,895.00. Which went directly into the clients hands via iPads. iPads are a unique, creative and amazing way for non-verbal clients to express themselves and their needs. Communication at a touch of a screen! While we all take communication for granted watching someone who was unable to communicate effectively, how they are feeling and then suddenly be able to is one of the most amazing sights in the world. I’ll take that sight over a mountain any day! In 2014, we decided to donate toward the same thing, iPads. We raised $7,401.94. That was a lot of iPads. We showed the iPads we purchased on Instagram.
This year Elevation Polish is going big. They want to be able to provide something truly special for Chrestomathy, Inc this year. The big donation this year will go toward multiple things such as: site improvements, more communication devices (iPads) and hopefully something even bigger if we can hit the target we are hoping for. Like always, Elevation Polish will share the donation amount on her blog and/or Facebook and also show what your donations went to.
Ready to see the 17 polishes I have to show you that will also be available during the event? I will have more info on purchasing and bidding at the end of the post.

More Information on the Elevation Polish 4th Annual Auction and Sales for Charity
Elevation Polish will be running this event just like she has in the past. For those not familiar with the process – the event is broken down into 3 events. There will be a morning sales event as well as an evening sales event which will have reasonably prices items in the $12.00 – $40.00 range. Originally it was suppose to be only 1 sales event, but a second was added so international friends can participate without sacrificing sleep. The auction event and each polish will start with a bid of $10.00 and there is no telling what they will end at. Either way you participate, you’ll be mailed off a fabulous polish with 100% of the sales and/or auction prices going to Chrestomathy, Inc.
The event will be broken down into 3 sections.
Sales portion will be held on a dedicated big cartel site with a 10 minute cart hold:
Chrestomathy, Inc’s Bigcartel
The auction portion will take place on eBay just like last year:
Chrestomathy, Inc’s Ebay Account
Just a couple of notes about the event:
Customer Service for the event will be handled by us (elevation polish) If you have questions please direct your emails to elevationpolish <at> gmail
The paypal account used for the event is the Chrestomathy, Inc one. We’ve been given brief access to it so we can process shipping.
Shipping supplies have been provided by Elevation Polish so the money normally used for that can go toward the eBay fees.
Items from the eBay event can not combine with items from the bigcartel shop. (two different sites, hard as heck to combine)
FAQ for the event (coming soon) will be on www.elevationpolish.com on the left hand menu.
