June Sponsors - Skoy Cloth

How did Skoy Cloth get their name? Skoj (pronounced Skoy) is a Swedish word that means: “just for fun”! And fun they are! Skoy Cloths were created by two friends wanting a cleaning cloth that was durable and earth-friendly. Skoy Cloths are durable 100% bio-degradable cleaning cloths available in a wide range of colors and prints.

A little more about the Skoy Cloth from their site:

"The SKOY cloth is a fabulous, absorbent, biodegradable and natural multi-use cloth. Our re-usable earth friendly cloth is perfect in your kitchen, bathroom, and on most surface areas in your home or office. SKOY cloth can be used in place of your sponge, wash cloth or paper towels.

It is a European made product and 100% biodegradable because it is made from a natural cotton and wood-based cellulose pulp. SKOY cloth is a chlorine-free product using water-based colors and inks. After an independent composting test, SKOY cloth broke down completely within 5 weeks.

The SKOY cloth is a durable product due to the reusability factor and can last months. Using a SKOY cloth is equivalent to using 15 rolls of paper towels in an average home. With the high cost of paper towels, as much as $2 per roll, SKOY cloth is the obvious choice for your wallet and the environment.

The SKOY cloth has an absorption factor of 15x its own weight. As a result, producing the most superior cloth product available. Imagine using 15 sheets of good-quality paper towels at once… This is how a wet SKOY cloth will feel in your hand.

The SKOY cloth is long-lasting because of the wash ability feature. It dries quickly, so it is not a breeding ground for bacteria. Have you ever used your sponge, then smelled your hand and it reeked of horrible bacteria? That will never happen again if you microwave your SKOY cloth regularly. It is also dishwasher and washer/dryer safe. Cleaning your SKOY cloth will keep it healthy and germ-free. Please see Use & Care for instructions.

The cool and unique designs will make cleaning fun!"

Connect with Skoy Cloth -

Please stop by and thank them for their support and generosity! Skoy Cloth has been kind enough to donate 2 2-pack Large cloth with paws print and 3 4-pack Mixed colors with flower print as a prize for our June raffle. Be sure to get your tickets prior to midnight June 30th to get in on all fun!

June Sponors - BelleDangles

BelleDangles was created by two best friends, Diana Liermann Unay and Rebecca Falkowski, who dreamed of the perfect jewelry and accessory organizer. With the help of Diana's hubby, Jeff, their dreams have come to life.

Here is a little about their organizers straight from their site:

"Unlike jewelry boxes, BelleDangles Jewelry Organizers keep jewelry and accessories in their place solving the issue of tangled necklaces and missing earrings. Plus, because it is a wall organizer, it saves space on dressers and counter tops!

All three BelleDangles jewelry organizers hold necklaces, bracelets, rings, both stud and dangle earrings and accessories including hair bands, ties, scarves, belts, hats and handbags.

Also includes a shelf on top - perfect for a mirror, picture frame, candle or additional storage.

BelleDangles Classic - over 110 pieces
BelleDangles Classic Mini - over 75 pieces
Bella - over 75 pieces"

The BelleDangles Classic is perfect for an extensive jewelry collection while the Classic Mini is ideal for smaller collections. The Bella is spot on for the favorite little girl in your life or the woman who is a girl at heart and loves pink. The pieces stand alone or could be grouped together for an impressive jewelry and accessory display.

Free House Cleanings for Cancer Patients in Arizona!

You have to love and admire great companies who give back!  Please read on for more information on the program from Planet Hugger.  As soon as I saw this email I knew I had to get the word out fast.  Sending everyone at Planet Hugger a big hug and hearty thank you!

~ Chisum Crew


Free House Cleanings for Cancer Patients: Arizona Green Maid Service announces enhancement to its cancer patient program.

Eco-Friendly Maid Service Provider and Green Cleaning Product Distributor, Planet Hugger Inc of Chandler, Arizona announced its plans today to expand the company’s existing Cancer Patient Program to include matching sponsors with patients for free house cleanings. The Eco-Friendly company’s philanthropic efforts for cancer patients have included free cleanings to women undergoing cancer treatments through its partnership with national charity Cleaning for a Reason, as well as offering significantly discounted rates of approximately 30% off normal hourly rates for cleaning services rendered to households with cancer patients of all genders and ages.

While the company’s existing efforts have allowed them to make a small impact, Angela Thornton, the company co-founder and daughter to cancer patient Eric Witt of California felt their company efforts could be “stepped up” in order to help many more patients who would otherwise not be able to afford the in-house assistance during a time when they need it most. Thornton believes that being in your home environment surrounded by loved-ones is most conducive to the healing process and adds that a clean environment is essential to help relieve one of the many burdens from caretakers. She also asserts that cleaning without chemicals is an added benefit for cancer patients whose immune systems are in many cases already compromised.

Planet Hugger’s latest plans for cancer patients will allow sponsors to pay it forward to patients in need at levels starting at just $38. What is unique about their cancer patient program is that sponsors will be able to feel a sense of direct impact by hand-selecting the Cancer patient that they are sponsoring. Cancer patients are encouraged to contact the company about registering their household in order to be matched with a sponsor for free house cleaning. Sponsors are also being called upon for their generous support of cancer patients.

For more information about cancer patient house cleaning programs in the Phoenix Metro and Tucson, Arizona Areas, please visit the company’s website at or call toll free at 1-888-554-HUGS.
