A long time since an update. It has taken over a year to source a new Phonewallet. Not giving up has resulted in the best Phonewallet to date.
Why the best:
(1) Sourced from a 25 year old registered Fair Trade Organisation, Craft Resource Centre in India.
(2) Made from Eco Leather. That is leather processed and dyed only using environmentally friendly means. No chemicals for preserving (chromium, Formaldehyde) or dyeing, only vegetable dyes are used.
The first buyer of the new Phonewallet, a past customer stated
“Picked up my phone wallet today from the post office and just wanted to let you know I think it’s great. I love the eco leather, the vegetable dye has a lovely patina and I like it even better than my last one. Thanks!”

I made an error in making a donation to BGF, for the wholesale of 2 pink phonewallets, which I would usually donate to the McGrath Foundation.
Confident the donation police will still be content with the error, just caught up in adding donation amount with consideration of wholesale to a gift shop in Bermuda (never saw that one coming), which accounts for the $2;50 amounts in the donation.

$932.50 Donated from the Phonewallet Groupon sale of Red and Black phonewallets (373 x $2.50). Seeking an additional $265 from Groupon for the total sales.

Phonewallet Groupon BGF donation
$270 donated from the recent Groupon daily deal promotion, a total of 143 phonewallets were paid for to Groupon. 108 buyers redeemed their order which raised $270 (108 x $2.50). Usually donate $5 per phonewallet sale but sold at half price so half the usual donation.
A redeemed order is an order I receive payment for from Groupon. I will be seeking Groupon to donate $87.50 (35 x $2.50) for the payments they have retained from the purchasers who did not redeem their payment.
35 purchasers paid $24.75 each for a total of $866.25 to Groupon and received nothing for their payment as they did not redeem their order. How good would it have been if they just made a direct donation to the McGrath Foundation?
