Fundraising for Lily

funin fundaising

Tomorrow night, I have the honor of doing a Facebook Fundraising party for a very special girl or should I say, her class.  Tonight is my “31 party for Lilygirl’s Classroom”.  Here is why we are fundraising:

Lily has autism.  She is in a self contained class in her high school. It’s a wonderful school, however, her teacher and paras pay for many classroom supplies and activities. Please help Lily’s class, so they can have an amazing year!!!

I met Lily and her mom, Tina, over two years ago at a vendor event.  Tina and I spent the day talking as we were vendors at the same event.  Over the next two years, we did many events together and I always looked forward to seeing Lily’s smiling face.  The greatest joy was at the last event when she quickly smiled and gave me a Lily hug.  I am honored to call them both friends.

When I saw her grandmom’s plea for help with raising funds for classroom supplies, I quickly offered to do a Thirty One fundraiser.  Tina took the book into the classroom to encourage sales.  I will be donating 25% of all sales to Lily’s AMAZING teacher to help with keeping the classroom supplied throughout the year.  I am also donating 10% of all sales for parties booked as a result of this event.  Parties need to be held between now and December 15th so that I can present them with a VISA gift card to start off the new year.  If you want to join in the fun on Facebook tomorrow night, click HERE to go to our event.

I love fundraising for organizations, individuals in need and causes that are near to my heart.  Since meeting Tina and Lily, I have heard of many other families who are struggling with autism in their family.  I was blessed with an amazing daughter despite my bad habits during my pregnancy so I want to be able to give back to others.  Each child is a blessing from God and is giving to us for a particular reason – healthy, health issues, mental health issues or for only a moment.  I would love to help other families who are struggling with financial needs.

When I started with Thirty One over three years ago, I said I wanted to give back and that was my why.  To share the blessings that God has given me with others in need – emotionally, physically or financially.  If you know someone in need, and you would like to help raise funds for them, contact me below:

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
