Tomorrow is March 1. This month, Drew & Lily will turn 1. I have 6 sponsors who have all agreed to donate a portion of their sales this month and next to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in support of Drew and his fight against CF. Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated. You can forward the link to this post to your friends, post a link to my blog on Facebook, email me for catalogs and put them in the break room at work to collect orders. This is such an easy way to raise money for CF with great products that people love. Without further ado....
Last week I posted our first two sponsors, Pampered Chef & Tupperware. Pampered Chef will donate 15% of all sales to the CFF when you "shop online" and select Erin Moore as your host. Tupperware will donate 40% of the sale of any of the items found through this link. Additionally, I am hosting a Pampered Chef party on Tuesday, March 8. Everyone is welcome - click here for the scoop.
The next sponsor I am happy to announce is Tastefully Simple. If you haven't experienced Tastefully Simple before, you seriously need to for two reasons. First, its delicious. Second, its so super easy to make everything. I'll have tons of Tastefully Simple dips at the Pampered Chef party next Tuesday (you should come and taste them!). Consultant Alison Bailey is donating 15% of all sales for March and April to the CFF. Take a look at her online catalog by CLICKING HERE and if you place an online order, be sure to select "Erin Moore" as your host prior to check out so that Alison can add 15% of your order total to her donation to the CFF.
Stella & Dot is the next sponsor I'd like to announce. Stella & Dot offers a great array of affordable, stylish jewelry. A friend of mine is hosting a Trunk Show this Saturday, and Stella & Dot Stylist, Michelle Wiegman, has graciously offered to donate 20% of the sales to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Here's what Corey had to say about the event:
Check out the celebrity coveted New Spring Line, enjoy apps and a glass of wine, and join us for some style! Stella and Dot can be seen in Lucky Magazine, InStyle, and O Magazine and on celebrities like Debra Messing, Giuliana Rancic, and Penelope Cruz--to namedrop a few. Designed in New York and San Francisco, the pieces are so irresistible and affordable, you'll be certain to find a little something special. Please feel free to add anyone to this evite or bring anyone along.Shop!
Would love to shop but can't make the Trunk Show? Shop online!
I use to be a Mary Kay rep. (no lie). I didn't stick with it, but I did stick with their products (minus mascara because I fell in love with Fiberwig. Look it up. You'll love it too). Back to my point. Mary Kay consultant Kristie Michalski has signed on to donate ALL PROCEEDS from the sale of Satin Hands to the CFF. Here's what she had to say about Satin Hands
The Fragrance-Free Satin Hands® Pampering Set is an easy, three-step system that helps keep hands feeling renewed, soothed and pampered.The set can be used on the entire body to keep your skin soft and hydrated. This set makes a great gift for teachers, co-workers, friends and family!
To purchase the Satin Hands Pampering Set from Kristie, visit THIS LINK. Don't feel like you have to stop with Satin Hands! Mary Kay offers a ton of great products and Kristie is just the girl to help you figure out what's best for you!
Next up is my invitation supplier of choice, A Touch of Whimsy! A Touch of Whimsy is a great online retailer of unique and personalized stationary. All of this fundraising is going to put me into bankruptcy because I truly love all of the places that are sponsoring us, and the fact that they're all donating a portion of sales to CF makes me just want to buy up all of their products! Back to A Touch of Whimsy.... I have gotten birthday invitations for both Ella and the babies from A Touch of Whimsy, as well as some personalized note cards and many Thank You notes. The owner of A Touch of Whimsy, Gina, is donating 15% of all sales to the CFF when you enter the promo code "drew" at checkout. But that's not all!! She will also take 10% off your order total!! Click HERE with caution - you're gonna go nuts with all of the great stuff they have to offer! And don't forget to enter "drew" as your promo code when you check out!
Last but not least, honestly one of my favorite things of all time, Yankee Candle. Yankee Candle has a fundraising program that donates 40% of all sales to your organization. FORTY PERCENT!!! I know Yankee Candles aren't cheap, but they are oh so worth it. Truly the only candle I've ever owned that can make my house smell sooo good for sooo long. Candles make great gifts too! Easter and Mothers Day are right around the corner! The only neg thing about the Yankee Candle fundraiser is that you can't make purchases online. They do have an online catalog - Online Catalog - and if you're interested in anything, just shoot me a quick note - firstname.lastname@example.org - with your order. You can mail me a check or use a credit card through PayPal. I thought it might be a pain, and if it were anyone else I might have passed on the fundraising opportunity. But between my love affair with Yankee Candle and the fact that they're offering 40% of all sales to the CFF, I had to go with it.
So there you have it! Our 2011 online sponsors. Hopefully you can find something (or lots of somethings) that suit your fancy. And please help us out by spreading the word of these fundraisers! Also, before I forget, I assure you that there is nothing in this for me. I'm not getting tons of free products or earning points or whatever anyone might think. I am doing this solely raising money for Cystic Fibrosis. Any perks that a "host" of any of these types of parties would typically receive are going to be raffled off in May when we make our final push for our Great Strides Teams. The deal on all of these fundraisers will be available on the left hand side of my blog for the next two months. Please email me if you have any questions, comments or concerns. And happy shopping for a good cause!
