Plan-Ahead Service
True or False? 
Teddy Bears Are NOT 
For Everyone...

I realize that not all of your friends or loved ones may appreciate a gift of a Teddy Bear, no matter how cuddly he is, or even learning that the TWIN bear went to a child in the hospital.
 
Typically, the fairly young and the "more seasoned" of us enjoy teddy bears the most. But experience also shows that those of us who have sorrows or ailments (and that's a whole bunch) also enjoy the tactile experience of cuddling a teddy bear, no matter what age we are.

Consider giving the comfort of a teddy bear to someone you know! 

NEW Plan-Ahead Service
from MamaBearsPlace
Take the Worry Out of (some of) Your Gift-Giving in 2014
 
Wouldn't it be great if you could sit down one time, make a few decisions and know that great gifts will be sent to your friends and loved ones at just the right time in the future? If you could know that these gifts will have a special meaning and give comfort and joy from the moment the box is opened and for years to come? 

Well, your dreams have come true. MamaBearsPlace.com can make that happen for you and for those you care about. 

I've organized a new service that takes the frustration out of gift-giving, because now you can make the purchase when you're ready to and know that your gift will be sent out at just the right moment later on.

And the best news is - This is a FREE SERVICE!

How Does This Plan-Ahead 
Gift-Giving Service Work?


Here's What You Do -
 Make a list of events you know are coming up for your friends and loved ones during the next 4 months - like:
Birthdays - for friends and relatives of all ages
Valentine's Day- February 14 - A great way to say "I Love You" to anyone you love
New Baby Gift - a great gift for a newborn is Winky Lamb which has a tiny rattle inside
Illness or Grief - send to people you know who are going through medical treatments, recuperating from surgery or have lost someone
Mardi Gras Day - March 4 - I'll include a string of beads with the bear
St. Patrick's Day- March 17 - I'll include a shamrock with the teddy bear
Easter - April 20 - I haven't decided yet, but I will include something :)
You choose which Pairs of Bears you want to send to these friends and loved ones anytime during the next 4 months. (Remember - one of the Pair of Bears will go to the person you know and one will go to a child in the hospital you choose.) 
Tell me the date of each event and the other details during checkout. 
Include the code Plan-Ahead (no spaces and caps don't matter) during checkout when it asks if you have a coupon or gift certificate.
Here's What I Do -
I will mail your gift via USPS Priority Mail one week before the date you give me for the event - ready to be opened and enjoyed by your friend or loved one. (Your gift usually arrives anywhere in the country within 1-3 days.)
* I'll send you an email with the tracking number when each teddy bear is shipped.
* The twin teddy bear from each Pair will be made ready and delivered to a child in whatever hospital you chose during checkout.
    The GUARANTEE
    I guarantee your gift will be mailed as promised via USPS Priority Mail one week before the date you give me for the event - or your money back. You can plan gift-giving for dates anytime within 4 months from the date of purchase by including the code Plan-Ahead (no spaces and caps don't matter) during checkout. I will send you an email with the tracking code each time one of your teddy bears ships, so you know your gift is on its way.

    This is a FREE SERVICE!

    At MamaBearsPlace we create a 
    GREAT Gift-Giving Experience For You 
    and Pure Joy for Your Friend or Loved One
     


    When we include our Gift Box with special gift tag (a $4.95 value) here's what your friend or loved one sees: 
    • The package that arrives is a clean brown cardboard box with a return address of MamaBearsPlace.com and my address in Albuquerque, NM.
    • There is a white gift box inside which is securely nestled with craft paper.
    • The gift box has a good looking gift tag on top. It has your special message - computer generated - so it is easy to read. The tag is secured to the top of the white box through tasteful layers of paper flower decorations - not too frilly, not too plain.
    • The top of the white box is easy to open.
    • Inside the box is the cuddly teddy bear you chose, protected inside a clear plastic bag with a twist tie closure.
    • The teddy bear has a "story card" hanging gently from a yarn necklace. That story card tells your friend or loved one about the Pair of Bears you purchased and that you want your friend or loved one to have this bear and the twin bear has been sent to comfort a child in the Children's Miracle Network Hospital that you picked.
    HOW COOL IS THAT??
     YOU MAY ASK:
    Question:  What if I don't choose to order the Gift Box with Special Gift Tag? What will my friend or loved one see when the package arrives?
    Answer: The presentation is not quite as nice - but it's still nice. Here's what they'll see:
    ·         The package that arrives is a clean white cardboard box with a return address of MamaBearsPlace.com and my address in Albuquerque, NM.
    ·          Inside the box is the cuddly teddy bear you chose, protected inside a clear plastic bag with a twist tie closure.
    ·         Your custom gift tag with your special message (computer generated - so it is easy to read) is paper clipped to the plastic bag.
    ·         The teddy bear has a "story card" hanging gently from a yarn necklace. That story card tells your friend or loved one about the Pair of Bears you purchased and that you want your friend or loved one to have this bear and the twin bear has been sent to comfort a child in the Children's Miracle Network Hospital that you picked.
    Question: What if I want to send a teddy bear gift to someone I know 6 months from now?  Can I still place a Plan-Ahead order now?  
    Answer: This service is available to you on a "rolling 4 months" basis. That means you can place a Plan-Ahead order for any delivery within 4 months of when you place the order. My suggestion is for you to mark your calendar about every 3 months to review the gifts you'll want to send to your friends and loved ones over the next 4 months. Anytime you want to pre-plan your gift-giving - just type Plan-Ahead (no spaces - caps don't matter) in the box on the checkout form when it asks if you have a Coupon or Gift Certificate.
    Question: Where do I type in the information about each gift?
    Answer: I have some customers who choose to make a new order for each gift, which is the absolute best. But if you want to make multiple purchases and pay just one time with your credit card, then there is plenty of space on the checkout form to give me the information. And I'm just a few keystrokes away, if you have questions. 
    Question: Why do you limit the Plan-Ahead to 4 months from the order date?
    Answer: It helps both you and me remember that the order was placed! It makes the whole process easy to handle.
    Question: Why are you offering a Plan-Ahead Gift-Giving Service?
    Answer: Because it finally occurred to me that people who visit my site may not be ready to send a gift right then - that the TIMING IS WRONG for them. Yet the chances of them coming back to the site at the RIGHT time is really remote. So I want to take care of the timing problem for them, right then, when they are thinking about sending a gift.
    Question: What sets MamaBearsPlace apart from other online retailers?
    Answer: Five main things set us apart:

    1. The teddy bears have a special significance because of their inherent qualities of providing comfort and joy. 
    2. The fact that a child in the hospital receives one of the Pair of Bears is another big plus. 
    3. The fact that all the bears come from GUND helps. GUND is a 110 year old company that is known for its quality and huggability.
    4. Your gift-giving can now be pre-planned, so that timing is no longer an issue for you. And the Plan-Ahead service is FREE!
    5. Your gift is sent in a nice clean package with a cute little gift tag attached to the bear that tells the recipient that special message you want them to see AND tells them about the twin bear.
