Give Back With Me

A new month and a new opportunity……….I am committed to making a difference in the life of others particularly children who are suffering as a result of nothing they have done. Last month, I was able to bless 2 people.  The first was the son of a friend and the second was a young lady who lost her mom to cancer.   My goal was to make let them know “They are Brave! They are Strong! They are AWESOME!”.

I say all of this – not to brag, or to toot my own horn – I share this so that you know I am sincere in my efforts to make a difference.

My passion is to bring hope and a smile to a child, reminding them that they are special and worthy.13710013_10157280658795220_3621804307325745350_n

Would you like to help me spread the “rays of hope” to a child who is struggling? Would you like to #impactasoul?

It is easy! Just nominate a child you know who could use some encouragement or needs to know they are loved in the space below and they will get a FREE personalized zipper pouch from me on YOUR behalf!1ee69bc3d31f4b0d9b0e8ec139eaccd5

If you have followed me for awhile or even have just started to read my blog, you know my passion is to make a difference – one small act at a time. Over the years, I have found one of the most fun and rewarding ways to do this is to ‘pay it forward’.

Here’s How:

Each month you can nominate a CHILD you feel deserves a ‘random act of kindness’ and one winner is randomly selected on the 15th of each month. The winner will receive words of encouragement and mailed a FREE Thirty-One Product from me!

Here’s Who:
This could be someone who is:

-battling an illness
-going through a difficult time
-someone who has impacted you in a positive way
-or just a CHILD you want to pour some love on!

Here’s Why:
Many years ago, when I was struggling in my addiction someone made a difference in my daughter’s life. They didn’t judge her because of the bad decisions I made as a mom. They didn’t judge her because of where we lived. They didn’t judge her PERIOD. They opened their arms and their heart to her. I decided when I was able – I would make a difference in the lives of other children. Children who are struggling many times because of no fault of their own. To me, the greatest success I can have in my business is knowing I did what I could to make a difference in another’s life.

So if you are ready to start making a difference in the life of a child – think of someone you can nominate and WHY this month and submit it to me below or at HopeWs31@gmail.com by the 15th so that together we can make make a difference!

Thank you for allowing me to use my business to bless those who are struggling. I appreciate the opportunity to partner with you and give back in this way.

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!

Thirty One’s June Hostess & Customer Specials

Unknown

OMG!!!!   It’s June… last weekend was the “unoffical” start of summer.  Alright, so maybe I am pushing things BUT it was the start of the tourist (AKA shoobie) invasion at the Jersey Shore.  This month is full of graduations

and end of the school year festivities.

13094282_1043039719068513_2700482752297742270_n 13006529_1043038505735301_8472202132376999137_n

I know, you are thinking… “I have NO time for a party“.  Money is tight with end of the year expenses.  What if I told you that YOU could reap all of the benefits of a “home party” without the work?  What if I could meet you at the ball park or in the parking lot at work?  What if you just carried a catalog with you and sent all of your friends to an online Facebook party that was fun?

I know “too good to be true”, right?  The truth is I have a party to fit your lifestyle this month.  And WHY am I willing to do this?  This months’ Customer and Hostess Special is WAY too good to pass up.

#1 –  June’s Customer Special is AMAZING!

Thirty One’s Customer Special for June is the MEDIUM UTILITY TOTE AND the STAND TALL INSERT for the medium utility tote!  Have you never heard of this product? Well, once a year it comes out for a limited time.  The BEST part is the addition of the Stand Tall Insert.  The perfect way to let your tote stand on its own.  It also adds pockets to the inside of your tote.

#2 – Be a hostess and the gifts just keep on coming…..

For just $200 in orders, YOU can have a qualified party. Did you know that only 6 orders of $35 will get you a $200 party?

#3 – Now, what if I told you that you could EARN extra money while chauffering the kids to activities or sitting on the beach?  What would you do with that money? Maybe you could pay off some bills. Pay for the kids summer activities.  Maybe it would just give you a chance to hang out with your friends.  Do you want to know the details?  Here is the inside scoop:

For just $99, you get over $350 in FREE product

Want to be a hostess?

Did you know that for just $200 in orders, YOU can have a qualified party.
