With a tear in my eye, mainly because I cannot tuck this one into my shirt pocket and go show it off in the office, I am offering this one up to you: the faithful and loyal readers of Good Pens and the money is going to support a Childrens Cancer Research Foundation. Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation. All for a great cause.
The great news: if you haven't seen it yet, Baltz Pens has launched a brand new pen line and they are busy cranking them out. You can get all the details on it here: http://baltzpens.com/exemplar-plus.php but I can offer a sneak peek of un-wrapping one of the models.
In my opinion...no one packages a pen up better than Baltz. Not only is the pen well protected during shipping, it's presented in a way that makes the received feel like they are getting something special (and they are.) If I were graduating, or celebrating a big win or needed something nice to add to my Christmas list and this showed up on my doorstep, I would be very happy.
Did you notice the subtle little tweak here on the "B" from the last line? Nice touch. I thought just having the engraved B was a nice touch, but highlighting it is even nicer. Oh, and it's 22 ct. gold by the way, oh and these are numbered pens. Amazing.
So...do you want a chance to win a $280 pen? It's simple. For every dollar you donate to my page at Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation...you get 1 raffle ticket to win this pen. On November 19th, I will put every one's name in a randomizer and pick a winner. Make a two dollar donation and get two chances to win. Simple.The link to donate is here. Please enter Good Pens in the field or shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let me know you donated and I will get you in the running and if you have already donated you are on the list as well. It's for a really good cause people. Anything helps and a dollar could win you a very nice pen.
Thanks again for looking and good luck!
