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!
