P.S. I Adore You
was born out of love for kids battling cancer. Chelsea’s daughter, Cami, was diagnosed with leukemia when she was just 4 years old. She went through chemotherapy treatments for 2 1/2 years, it was a long and very difficult road, but we are so fortunate to say that Cami is now 7 years old, she’s been off treatment for almost a year and is doing well!
Unfortunately, there are many families who don’t have the same outcome as Cami and we just had to do something to help them! Childhood cancer is vastly underfunded and it is a subject that people don’t know much about because kids can’t write their own stories, blog about their experiences or document their journey. It is up to us to tell their stories, to raise awareness and ultimately help find a cure for these kids!
This is why PS I Adore You was born! We wanted something fun and different that people would want to come back to on a daily basis that we could use to share these kids stories. Each month we choose a family who has a child going through treatment and could use a little sunshine, we tell their child’s story and accept donations for that family. We also donate all the samples from that month to our featured family, so they get a very fun package along with their check at the end of the month! PS I Adore You donates to CureSearch for childhood cancer research and we feature deals called ‘Cure the KIDS’ where we give 100% of our commission to Childhood cancer research. We are so excited to present our large check to them in October!
We know that there are a lot of deal sites out there to choose from, but we hope people see that we have a way bigger picture! We want to bring fresh, fun new products, but more importantly we strive to help out in the world. We love these kids with all our hearts and we know that the love for them is spreading to our shoppers and nothing makes us happier!
Tell us a little bit about yourselves!
This is Ashley. Ashley takes care of our vendors once their deal has ended, she pays our vendors and helps them settle our their deal.
Ashley is our style guru. Ashley loves shopping for her two girls who are 5 and 2. These girls are just like their mommy and always look styled to the max. Ashley loves to dance and was a Utah Jazz dancer for 4 years. Through the Utah Jazz she would do various appearances. Her all time favorite was visiting the little patients at Primary Children’s Hospital. Those kids smiles left a lasting imprint on her heart and from that moment on she knew she wanted to give back in her life. Ashley loves dancing, but she especially loves watching her little girls bust a move and share her same passion for dance. Her family is her number one priority, she’d do anything for them. Ashley can’t function without her morning coffee, and loves a good salad from her hubby’s restaurant, Plates and Palates.
This is Chelsea. finds our featured cancer cutie for each month, marketing and social media. Chelsea finds our featured cancer cutie for each month and heads up our marketing and social media.
Chelsea can’t resist a good book and a hot bubble bath, she loves almost any baked good, and her and her hubby are movie addicts. Chelsea is also a mom of 7 year old Cami and 4 year old Caden, her kids are her world. Chelsea learned the hard way that life can change in an instant. Her daughter, Cami was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on July 10, 2010 and after over 2 years of continuous chemotherapy Cami is now CANCER FREE! Little Caden was only one when his sister was diagnosed and he was such a little trooper for those 2 years. Cami got loads of gift, attention and time with her parents, but little Caden was just worried about his sister, never about himself. Now that Cami is off treatment, Chelsea’s family loves to take their yearly trips to DisneyLand, long walks with their golden retriever Baylee, and they never miss the latest Pixar movie (with a large popcorn of course).
This is Whitney. Whitney is the Vendor Coordinator for PS I Adore You and is in charge of booking vendors and getting their products into our system.
Whitney is a pro at throwing an amazing party, she styles her kids birthday parties and doesn’t miss a detail. She loves all the darling paper goods and stocks up every time she finds a good deal. Her go-to clothing stores are J Crew, Nordstrom and Anthropologie. Whitney loves to shop and she’s excited about finding you the best deals possible on handpicked accessories, home decor and party goods. Her and her husband also love to travel and visit new exotic locations. She loves Italian food and can’t resist a good goat cheese!! Whitney and her husband adopted their two beautiful children. Her darling daughter is 4 and her handsome little man is 2. Whitney spent a few months volunteering at Orphanages in Ecuador and through that experience she gained a passion for giving back. Through her adoption process she learned to never take a moment with her kids for granted.
We thought and thought about names, but since it all comes down to these kids, we named it for them… because although we are a deal site, our ultimate goal is to slowly give our shoppers small doses of childhood cancer, until it becomes something they are aware of and passionate about. So.. ‘PS I Adore You’ is basically our message to these kids.
Ps Has opened the door for so many families to tell their stories of how Childhood cancer has effected them. We want to be able to bring some smiles to these families that are going through so much. We hope to bring amazing deals to customers and have each deal remind them of how precious life really is and to cherish what you have. I have never felt so much joy in helping raise money for these amazing families that have gone through so much!
I hope that we have spread the word about childhood cancer to hundreds of thousands. My hope is that when someone buys a cute product on our site, they remember those kids and what they are going through. I hope when they look at that necklace from our site, it can be a reminder to hug their kids a little tighter, or read just one more bedtime story, or to put the phone down and just be with the ones they love, to forgive, to let go and to live life to the fullest each and every day!
