An Update On The "Help Make Me A Grandma" Campaign


Happy Sunday!!  Well, it's late but technically it's still Sunday!  Some of you have been asking for an update on the post I wrote a few weeks ago about the "HELP MAKE ME A GRANDMA" campaign.  If you're new to the blog, welcome!!! and you can read all about it HERE.

Donations, help, odd jobs, and prayers have been POURING in for Chris and Erin since they were accepted at the adoption agency the chose to work with.  Friends have been donating their change jars:


And lots of other goodies.   People locally have been donating furniture and other odds and ends items for them to sell on Craigslist.  Strangers have anonymously been hitting the DONATE button on Erin's Blog.  There's a bakery that's local to them in Texas who are donating to their adoption fund if you mention their names when placing your order.  The support is simply overwhelming.

Now, another friend of theirs who is a Scentsy representative is GENEROUSLY donating 25% of all her sales between now and August 27th, if you buy using the "Slay Adoption Fund link.  Here's what they had to say about it in their event invitation on Facebook:

As most of you are aware, Chris and I are in the process of adopting a baby!

A friend of ours is a Scentsy sales consultant and has GENEROUSLY offered to give 25% of sales from this fundraiser to our purpose. That's right-- every burner, every scent brick, everything you buy will get us 25% back for our adoption fund, if purchased by August 27th.

When you click that link, you should be taken to a Scentsy page that says "Slay Adoption Fundraiser" near the top. From there, shop til you drop!

If you haven't owned Scentsy before, I can verify that it's a great product. I love to have one on in the living room so that when friends come over, it's the first thing they notice. It's a subtle enough product that it's not overwhelming or too perfume-y. I love my Scentsy!

Please feel free to share the link with anyone you think might be interested-- the more sales, the better! It's not just a great product for you, it's a wonderful purpose as well :-)

I realize that a lot of people already have a Scentsy representative, but I'm hoping that if you're in the need for a few items, you may consider buying from this link, just for this time.   The fundraiser is good through August 27th.  It will make them smile :)


Thank you all again, for your kindness, generosity and overwhelming support.  I can't even begin to tell you how much it means to them...and to me.  I REALLY want to be a Grandma!!!!!


Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E
