In this issue we invite you to:
It's the MOOsLETTER!
Join us for fun and games!

Three Billy Goats There's much excitement at MOO Towers this month as we reach our third birthday. We’ve got a month of fun and games lined up, with questions and clues to baffle your brain, educate and entertain you. Those who begged us to repeat the Egg Hunt will love it - and those who are new to MOO are in for a real treat!
Corvus, our ace cluewriter will puzzle you with three questions every working day throughout the month - so visit the blog, get your brain in action and win yourself a prize!

Join us for very special discounts!

Birthday Discounts We're also celebrating with a MONTH of special discounts from MOO and our partners!

Some will be big, some will be VERY big - and for a limited period of time only. Visit the site for the latest news - or follow us on Twitter. (We'll also tag our birthday posts with #moois3, so you can do a quick search for the things you missed while you were sleeping!)

Join us in London!

And for those of you in or near London, please do join us for our real world party! Our last party was in the USA, so we felt we should bring it back home to celebrate with some of the UK folks who were there at the very beginning. Find out more details - and we hope to see you there!

Conference Discount Join us in helping charity:water

When we found out people were giving up their birthday gifts in throughout September to help Charity: water to provide safe, clean water for developing countries, we knew we should join in.

For every Ready Made pack of charity: water Greeting Cards sold, we’ll be donating £14 / €15.9 / $22.5) to the cause. Buy these special packs of beautifully photographed cards, and use them for anything from thank-you notes for your own birthday gifts, birthday greetings, or just to say ‘hello’. You'll be helping a fantastic charity and giving thousands of people a fresh, safe new start.

Join us in marvelling at this fun birthday fact!

We love facts at MOO, and as it's our birthday we thought we should share this one - it's one of our favourites: You only need 23 people in a room to have a greater than 50% chance of having two birthdays on the same day. This has certainly been proved true in this office, try it out in yours and then read the science.

Packaging idea Join us in admiration

One of the great things about birthdays is not just the gifts, but the gift wrapping. We’ve featured different gift wrapping ideas before, but this image (right) by Etsy seller, Wiccked recently caught our eye.
Wrapped like a gift, this is the way she packages orders - with a MiniCard for customers to share, or help guide them back to her store, and two MOO Stickers (which ship globally, from the UK store only). Tied up with string and ribbon this is a great bit of branding, noticeable but not intrusive, fun - and something your customers will want to keep.

And that's all for now,

Have a great week,
The MOO Crew

We’ve also noticed that because we give discounts (which sometimes talk about money!) in our newsletter, some email spam filters think we are evil. We'd like to assure you we are not. To make sure you receive your newsletters without any problems each month, please add us to your list of ‘safe senders’ - or your 'white list'!
