Another year older…Seriously, it seems that the years fly by. Tomorrow morning (6/19), I will be 33-years-old. (And Nik will be 21. 😉 ). As much as I love getting presents (you still have time to shop – lol), I much prefer GIVING gifts. So this year for my birthday, I’m offering a “present” for all of you!
But first….Here’s Megan’s story:
Megan is one of my oldest and dearest friends. In fact, I often refer to her as my sister, rather than my best friend. We have been through just about anything two friends can go through together – high school, marriages, divorces, children, move (we both moved to SC from OH at the same time just be close to one another). But September 11, 2011 unexpected events faced Megan with one of the toughest trials life has to offer. Megan and her almost 4-year-old son, Will, were in an awful car accident. The car they were in ended up catching fire. In that instant, Megan lost her son and suffered severe injuries herself. She suffered burns over the bottom half of her body, broken bones, lost teeth and was in a coma for six weeks. When she woke up, she had no memory of the crash. Along with the pain of her injuries, she was faced with the pain of losing her youngest. Over the next few months, she went through countless surgeries to repair her legs and graft skin from the burns. The doctors told her she may never walk again. Now, over eight months later, Megan is walking with the use of a walker, driving and living at home. She is enjoying every moment she has with her beautiful daughter, Allie. She is thankful for everyday and every moment (and of course missing her precious Will). Her friends and family are behind her 100%, which helps her emotionally. Unfortunately, with the wonderful care Megan received from the doctors comes nearly $2 million in medical bills (this is AFTER insurance!!!). I want to help Megan anyway I can. So my entire commission from this show will be given to Megan (commission is 25% of the merchandise total). You can order to show your support under “Fundraiser for Megan” by June 14th. Or if you prefer to donate directly to Megan instead of making a purchase, you can send donations to the PayPal account set up for my Thirty-One Fundraising – firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, for anyone who books show with me to be held in the month of June and mentions Megan’s fundraiser when booking, I will donate 10% of the commission from that show to Megan, as well. This show can be online/book or in-home. You will still receive the normal booking bonuses, hostess benefits, etc for booking. Megan’s event can be found on my website: www.mythirtyone.com/127444. Once there, click on the “My Parties” link on the right side of the page. Then click Shop Now next Megan’s name. Thanks for your support in advance!
Ok, now onto the present part.
I am a Thirty-One consultant. If you don’t know about Thirty-One, it is a home-based business. I sell totes, thermals, wallets, purses, baskets, organizers, etc etc etc…And not just for women. We even have some men’s stuff too! Well, every few months or so I run a fundraiser for a person or family in need. This month I chose a very special person. My best friend of almost 19 years – Megan.
So what does this have to do with a present for you? Well, I want to make a big splash with this fundraiser and help Megan out. SOOOO, anyone who makes a purchase between now and 6/19 at 11:59pm EST will get a $10 credit good for the month of July or August. If you book a show, 10% of the commission from that show will also go to Megan AND you’ll get a $20 credit (instead of the $10) on top of the already awesome Hostess Benefits. So there you go. Make a purchase. Help out an amazing person who has had a really rough year AND get yourself a credit towards your next purchase!
You can order on the website by selecting “My Parties”, then selecting the link next to Megan’s Fundraiser. Your credit card will not be charged until June 30th. If you want the order to go through immediately, just place an order not associated with Megan’s Fundraiser. You can also pay with PayPal by emailing me through the website. When you’re purchasing this month, remember that for every $35 you spend you can add a Large Utility Tote to your order for just $10. That’s a $25 savings! This month we’re offering it in Pink Lotsa Dots – available in June only. AND this month only, we have Top-a-Totes for $10. They’re “lids” for the Large Utility Tote. This is a June exclusive!
