Plummer Family Reuion
Marcie Calvin of Kansas City, MO, made these buttons and attached them as part of the invitation to their family reunion - then made additional buttons to distribute at the event. "I thought it was a fun spin on the family name, since everyone needs a plumber and we need Plummers at our family reunion," she said. Once the invites went out, Marcie got immediate feedback and facebook comments saying "love the button...see you in June"!
Heart of Caring
Genevieve Gipson of the National Network of Career Nurse Assistants in Norton, OH, developed this button to honor and recognize nursing assistants who "provide 90% of the hands on care in this country." National Nursing Assistants Week is June 14-21, 2012, and this message gets the word out about the importance of their work throughout the year.
Beatty Library
Georgine Willis of "Beatty's Cowboys" - a reenactment group from Beatty, Nevada - designs and makes buttons to sell to promote the town of Beatty. Proceeds from this button go to help out the library, but she also makes buttons to help support other local organizations such as the volunteer fire department and the Lion's Club. So far they group has sold over 400 of the library buttons!
Maria Shireen Thomas of Centreville, VA designed this button to raise funds for a donation to Obama's presidential campaign. "I decided to be a 'behind-the-scenes' volunteer and plan to donate 90% of the proceeds from the sale of these buttons to the campaign." The button has been well-received already!
