Sister-“Mompreneurs” announce national contest

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SISTER-“MOMPRENEURS” ANNOUNCE NATIONAL CONTEST TO RENAME THEIR PRODUCT AFTER CORPORATE THREAT

CHARLESTON, S.C., JULY 27, 2009– Small business owners and sisters Rhett & Neyle Templeton recently learned how childish corporate life can be when giant Playtex Corporation ordered them to drop the “Binky” from their signature product, the Heirloom Binky Bracelet.

“Binky” seemed to be a cute, generic word helping describe the sterling silver pacifier holder (which converts to a keepsake bracelet for posterity) that the sisters created for their co-owned business, Templeton’s – Timeless Infant Silver. Both stay-at-home moms, Rhett & Neyle epitomize the success of the “Mompreneur” movement, having received national publicity for their products on “The Drs” TV show, as well as promotion in “swag bags” for Hollywood babies.

All was peaceful until Playtex confronted Templeton’s last week with a “cease and desist” order to drop “Binky” from their name. It turns out “Binky” is trademarked as Playtex’s pacifier brand.

With only five business days to follow through, the Templetons turned a jarring setback into opportunity, and not just for themselves, announcing a contest to rename their product.

“The contest will be announced on August 7th on the Charleston morning show Lowcountry Live with Ryan Nelson,” co-owner Rhett Templeton said.

There will be one Grand Prize Winner, who will receive a large basket stuffed with “Infant to Mommy” Products from clients of the PR and Marketing Company Baby Swags, which places “mompreneur” creations in swag bags for celebrities.

Baby Swags owner Phyllis Pometta stepped in immediately to help when she learned of the sisters’ business crisis, Templeton noted. “From the U.S. to Canada as well as Australia, the generosity of our peers and their willingness to help another small business in need has been overwhelming.”

Contest rules can be found on the Templeton’s website, http://www.TempletonSilver.com. The Grand Prize Basket products can be viewed both there and on Baby Swags’ website, http://www.BabySwagsPR.wordpress.com. The contest is open to all.

Templeton’s is Forced to Re-name Their Heirloom Binky Bracelet

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Templeton’s is Forced to Re-name Their Heirloom Binky Bracelet

Templeton’s – “Timeless Infant Silver” desperately needs your help. We are reaching out to each of you in hopes of helping us re-name our product, and hopefully generate some business for you as well. We have been forced by Playtex to “cease and desist” using the word “binky” in our product name. A trademark application was filed for our Heirloom Binky Bracelet. However, Playtex has already registered the name “binky” for their pacifier. Originally, we were given only 5 business days to change our name. This can get very costly for such a small business like ours that is run solely by my sister and me.

We are reaching out to each of you in hopes that we can help each other. We are going to host a contest to re-name our product. We love our name and are finding it very difficult to quickly create another name. So, we thought that we would ask our peers for help.

There are several ways that your participation can directly affect your sales and increase buzz about your company through your generosity. I will post each of your contact information on our website, blog, Facebook (2 personal pages and 1 fan page), Twitter, and other network marketing sites in regards to this contest. I will send out a mass emailer to our entire contact list mentioning all of your information along with press releases to my media list. About.com’s baby guide writer, Stacie McClintock, will blog about the contest on her site. Each of my retailers will be sent a list of the products and contact info for each participant. I already have a TV interview set-up with our local morning show here in Charleston, SC. I will mention that there is a great gift basket filled with innovative and stylish products made by Mompreneurs who all came together to help out another Mompreneur in need. I would like to have all of the products in time to be shown on the TV show. Right now the date is scheduled for Friday, July 24th. I’m working on pushing this back in order for your products to reach me in time. This is a Live show. I will also send each of you a copy of the video link from the show to put on your press page. You will also receive a press release for you to use with your own promotion. I am also hoping to get an interview with our local section in our news paper that features women focused businesses.

How your company can help us is by providing us with one of your products to be donated into our Grand Prize Basket. Obviously, the more the participants the more press we should receive. This could turn into a huge marketing plan for all of us, if we all come together and pool our resources. If you are interested in participating in this, please contact Rhett Templeton immediately. We greatly appreciate you taking the time to read this and I look forward to hearing from you.

pure and little – online organic baby boutique

pure-and-little-logo

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

In Support of an Eco-Friendly Lifestyle, Pure and Little Launches Online Organic Baby Boutique Just in Time for the Holidays

Providing pure products for your little one that are natural, safe and eco-friendly

New Jersey (PRWeb) December 1, 2008 – pure and little launches its online organic baby boutique geared towards supporting a “green” lifestyle from birth. Baby’s systems are extremely sensitive and new to the environment. Without a solid immune system, they cannot fend off chemicals used in non-organic products. By making informed decisions and choosing organic products, parents can give their little ones a chance at a pure beginning.

“Just the way nature intended; from the clothes they wear to the bedding they sleep on, even to the toys they play with, I believe little ones should be surrounded with the comfort of fibers pure and soft,” states boutique owner, Kaitlin Spreitzer.

pureandlittle.com thoughtfully selects each product to ensure quality remains natural, safe and eco-friendly. Organic products including apparel and bedding are made from natural fibers such as bamboo, cashmere, cotton, hemp, jute, linen, milk and soy. These organic fibers are durable, comfortable and healthy to both your child and the environment. Organic baby products are made without pesticides and fertilizers, toxic fabric finishes and flame-retardants. Babies can be exposed to toxic chemicals in ordinary personal care products such as lotions, shampoos and diaper creams. pure and little focuses on safety and makes sure all hair and skin care products are made using the finest and most natural ingredients. Organic toys are made without the use of pesticides and contain no toxic dyes and paints that can be damaging to a small child.

pure and little offers consumers a larger selection of healthy products for the fashion conscious, eco-friendly trendsetter. In addition to apparel, pureandlittle.com also carries a variety of stylish and non-toxic bedding and blankets. Bath and body products are safe for delicate baby skin and organic accessories such as bibs and bottles, laundry care; toys, music and books can also be found at this one-stop organic baby boutique.

Parents can create a personal registry that will allow them to list the items that they need or want for their new baby. Making gift giving easier, consumers may choose to have their purchases gift-wrapped, which would include a gift box, ribbon, card and envelope. pureandlittle.com products are wrapped in recycled materials safe for the planet and above all, everything is packaged with love and handled with care from their door to yours.

You can learn more about pure and little by visiting pureandlittle.com. If you would like more information or to schedule an interview with Kaitlin Spreitzer, please call 908-647-5001.
