We are giving back 10% of deals to organizations in your community
February 10th, 2012 | 5:07 PM
As a mom of three kids, I know first hand how important Moms are in the community – especially when it comes to fundraising for all of the organizations our kids and families are involved with. Moms are the glue that holds communities together.
I also know that being able to multi task is key to my survival. Now Plum District is offering me an opportunity to not only treat myself, with great products and inspirations I want, but an easy way to give back to my local community.
Coming soon, every Friday Plum District local markets are going to feature amazing deals at local businesses that give 10% of the net proceeds to a school, non-profit, or organization in your local community.
It’s easy for you to participate –as a mom, business, or organization. If you are interested in getting involved just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will put you in touch with a District Consultant in your local market that will help pair your organization with a local business (or vice versa). She will even provide you the tools needed to spread the word about the fundraising effort!
Our goal at Plum District is to make Mom’s day by offering great values for you and your family. And now we are helping you make the day for those in your community!

As many of you know, Digital Doorstep, our merchant for our recent Starbucks/Fandango offer, had technical complications with providing e-gift card codes for Plum District customers. I want to start by apologizing for any inconvenience or disappointment this has caused you. Plum District’s goal as a company, and mine as CEO, is to always “Make Mom’s Day.” Clearly this offer has fallen short for our customers, and for that I am sincerely sorry.
As a result, we have worked tirelessly with the Digital Doorstep team to resolve the problem and we are relieved to report that there is a resolution. As of this evening, Digital Doorstep has assured us that all codes that have not yet been redeemed should be working now. This includes the codes that showed an “invalid code” error message or showed “already redeemed” when they were not. We have tested codes to verify this is in fact true. You should receive your e-gift cards as promised. We ask that if you are still experiencing an issue with your code, please contact email@example.com so we can report any outstanding code issues to Digital Doorstep and provide you with a quick resolution.
We realize this is an inconvenience for our customers and for that we sincerely apologize. We have learned through this experience that we need to better qualify our merchant partners to ensure their ability to fully deliver a customer experience that meets our standards. At Plum District, we truly strive to delight each and every one of our customers. We take it personally when we do not meet that standard. It is our commitment to you that we will continue to strive to bring you great offers every day.
CEO, Plum District

Lisa Barnes shares her story of survival and why she is proud to support awareness
October 10th, 2011 | 2:13 PM
Written by Lisa Barnes, San Francisco District Consultant
Seven years ago my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. I clearly remember the phone call from my dad telling me that the tumor was malignant. After calmly telling me the diagnosis, I simply handed the phone to my husband and walked outside. Words failed me, and I cried. At the time, we lived over 6,000 miles away, and the feeling of helplessness was overwhelming. I worried about my mom, I worried about myself, and I prayed like I never had before.
Fortunately, she beat breast cancer and I am proud to say that my mother is a survivor. I love that when I call her every morning she still asks “Lisa, did you have breakfast?” Used to drive me nuts, but now I realize it’s the little things that are important.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. For those women and men who have been diagnosed, have survived, or have journeyed with a family member or friend through their diagnosis – you know that every day is a day of awareness. That is why I am so proud that our San Francisco Bay Area Team at Plum District is partnering up with Breast Cancer Connections to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
For the entire month of October, the Plum District Bay Area team will donate 2% of all deals purchased on www.plumdistrict.com to the Bay Area branch of Breast Cancer Connections.
Please show your support by passing on the information, and/or sharing a Plum District Deal with your friends and family.
Breast Cancer Connections is a nonprofit organization that provides comprehensive, personalized information and support to empower people touched by breast cancer. Their free programs serve a range of needs, whether emotional, informational, or access to care. From newly diagnosed to survivorship, compassionate staff and volunteers offer support every step of the way. For more information, visit www.bcconnections.org.
