It’s been a busy couple of weeks behind the scenes at the Plunge Project, and while I promise I have so really awesome things coming up over the next month, I do have a couple fun announcements to share with you today!
First, remember that contributing writer search I started a couple weeks ago? I *finally* made a decision on not one, but two new ladies who will be joining the Plunge Project! Ready to meet them?
Alison was born, raised and educated in Iowa, but now lives in Greenville, South Carolina with her husband Tim. Alison writes for publications like REDBOOK and serves as the features editor of a local women’s magazine. Alison and Tim have traveled to Belize, Guatemala, and the UK, but their most powerful journey has been to Liberia, West Africa where they helped drill wells in remote villages with Water of Life. Alison is passionate about celebrating life, saving money and helping others do the same. Learn more at AlisonStorm.com.
Andi graduated from the University of Maryland and Rosemont College. She moved to PA in 2008, where she lives with her fiancé, three cats and a tiny corn snake. She is a loan support analyst, which is a fancy way of saying that she spends 40 hours a week in a cubicle. Because there is zero creativity involved in her day-to-day, she volunteered to be the Editor-in-Chief for her department’s monthly newsletter, and started a blog shortly before she became engaged to help parse through the unexpected difficulties and joys of the wedding planning process. When she’s not in danger of being crushed beneath an avalanche of wedding magazines, you can find her scouring Pinterest and Etsy, sketching ideas for her next tattoo or playing video games.
In addition, I’m excited to share a new partnership with eStoreMonster and the launch of the Plunge Project Shirt Shop! In the official Plunge Project Shirt Shop, you’ll find great wedding-related shirts for yourself, your groom-to-be and everyone in your bridal party. So whether you’re looking for shirts to rock for your bachelor/bachelorette parties, tees to get ready for the big day in or gifts for any other wedding-related occasion, we’ve got you covered! And while we’re launching with 16 items today, I’m going to be working hard to add more great shirts in the coming weeks!
Stay tuned for posts from both Alison and Andi, in addition to a great giveaway coming up Monday. Also be sure to check out the Shirt Shop! As always, thanks so much for reading :) Happy Friday!
