Hooby Groovy Supports Wong Fu Productions and Habitat for Humanity

Posted on January 16, 2014 by Ee-Leng Chang | 0 Comments

When I heard that Young Republic was collaborating with Soulheartist and Wong Fu Productions to support Habitat for Humanity, I was immediately keen to get involved with the project. 

Soulheartist is a platform that connects artists, brands, charities and individuals around a cause. All parties are able to contribute what they have in hand and together all can gain mutual positive benefits while helping a worthy cause. 

The current Soulheartist project is in collaboration with Wong Fu Productions and supports Habitat for Humanity to raise resources and awareness for its causes. Habitat for Humanity focuses on helping families and communities in poverty by engaging people to help build homes for people in need. So here's how it works:

If you would like to support this awesome cause, you can subscribe to this project. There are a few different subscription models, such as weekly payments of $6 for 13 weeks or an upfront subscription of $65. In return, you will get a Wong Fu Productions Soulheartist Pack as well as special access to exclusive members-only discounts from brand partners

That's where Hooby Groovy comes in! I've partnered up with this project to offer a 35% discount on my range of Hooby Groovy designs that are available on my Young Republic shop. Once you've subscribed to the Wong Fu Project on Soulheartist, you'll receive a special discount code that will give you the 35% discount off your Hooby Groovy order at Young Republic. 

Do check out the various links below to find out more about this awesome cause:

When Etsy Australia asked if I wanted to participate in their Christmas Pop-Up shop, I was really excited! I started Hooby Groovy on Etsy and I love the whole Etsy philosophy and community. Etsy designers and sellers are always inspiring me and motivating me to work hard so I really feel happy and proud to be included in an event like this and have my creations alongside all their awesome creative work.

I am a little sad though that I'm all the way over here in Melbourne and can't see the shop with my own eyes. So if you are in Sydney, please do drop by and check it out and say Hi to my Hooby Groovy creations! :)

Giveaway: Four Weeks of Shinobi the Zombie!

Posted on August 12, 2013 by Ee-Leng Chang | 9 Comments

It's Hooby Groovy Giveaway Time!

Recently, I had a zombie accident at work. I was working on Shinobi the Zombie iPad Mini Cases and as soon as I laid the last completed one down, I realised I'd made a dire, dire mistake. I'd forgotten to sew on the band-aids that are on the back pocket of Shinobi! 

And so now I have 4 Shinobi iPad Mini Cases that are missing their back pocket band-aids. :( I thought that I'd try to find them some owners who might still love them despite their band-aid-less bottoms. 

So, without further ado, let's kick start the Four Week Shinobi iPad Mini Case Giveaway! 


The Prize:

Each lucky winner receives 1 Shinobi iPad Mini Case, here's the front of Shinobi:


And here's the band-aid-less back:


It's still got its back pocket. 


How the Giveaway works:

Every week for the next 4 weeks, I will be giving away 1 Shinobi iPad Mini Case. The Giveaway begins on Monday and a winner is chosen on Sunday night (Australian time). 

So Week 1 of the Shinobi iPad Mini Case has commenced and will run until the 18th August. 


How to Enter Week 1:

I'm feeling exceptionally silly for forgetting those band-aids, so I want to hear your silly mistakes too! Leave a comment below and tell me about a silly mistake that you've made! Did you forgot to take your keys out with you and now you're locked out of your house? Or have you ever put salt into your coffee instead of sugar? 

There are no right or wrong answers, I just want to hear from you. :) At the end of the week, I'll randomly pick a winner. 

If you've never made a silly mistake ever (for example if you are a robot ;p), you can still enter the giveaway, just tell me a little something about yourself. Your favourite colour, your favourite cartoon character, your favourite Hooby Groovy creation, anything at all! :) 

Oh and make sure you Like the Hooby Groovy Facebook Page so you can keep an eye on the results of the giveaway which will be posted on this blog and Facebook. 


So that's it, just leave a comment of a silly mistake you've made and see if you're the lucky winner at the end of this week. Good luck! :)

EDIT: The Week 1 Giveaway is now closed! I used a random number generator to pick the winner and the winner is...*drum roll*...Suzanne! Congrats Suzanne, you'll be getting an email from me very soon. Thanks to all who participated and stay tuned for another chance to win again in Week 2.
