Share the Blessings


Lately, my mailbox has been flooded with political campaign literature and requests for donations.  I am amazed at the extent of the mailing (calendars, address labels, greeting cards, etc) that organizations requesting money go to in an effort to “win” your donation.  Coming from a grassroots non-profit background, I am amazed at the money spent that could go to services and families in need.  So I want to offer you the opportunity to help others with little or no expense to you.

I want to share the blessings that I have been given with others, won’t you join me?  This is the season of being thankful for what we have (no matter how great or small) while we share with others who are not as fortunate.

Fundraising is defined as the process of gathering voluntary contributions of money or other resources, by requesting donations from individuals, businesses, charitable foundations, or governmental agencies.

What if I could show you a FUN way to raise much needed funds?  Funds to help not only are sports teams, schools, churches, and organizations BUT also individuals who need of assistance.  Maybe you know a group or organization that could use some “comfort bags”.  Maybe you think this is CRAZY, this will never work.  Guess what?  I am here to say, let’s work together to make a difference in the life or lives of others today!

If you aren’t bold enough to ask online for help from family and friends? If you are the average family struggling to pay for unexpected expenses? Or maybe your child (children) want to play on a sports team but you don’t have the money for uniforms or equipment? What if you have overwhelming medical bills and an extra $100 or $200 would help eliminate the stress? What if you are expecting a new addition to the family BUT the cost of new furniture, diapers (have you seen how expensive they are?) and formula is already stressing you out?  Maybe you know a group of women (or men) who could desperately use some cheering up with a comfort bag.

I have a solution. No, you don’t have to beg for money. No, you don’t have to tell everyone your sad story.

What about a Girl’s Night Out either in your home or at a local restaurant? What about a Fashion Show? What about a BINGO night? Sounds like a lot of work, right? I am here to take care of the details, all you have to do is invite the people.

How does it work? You select the type of Thirty One event – home party, On the Go Party, fashion show, BINGO, Baby Shower, Housewarming party, pool party, online party, catalog or Facebook party. I will set up the details and you invite your friends and family to shop. No one needs to know that we are fundraising for you unless you want to tell them. You just share the Thirty One Gifts catalog full of awesome products. I mean who can resist the opportunity to shop and help a good cause.

Easier and different then the traditional candy bar or wrapping paper fundraiser. Everyone LOVES Thirty One. The products are fun, functional, fashionable and affordable. There is something in everyone’s price range.
