November is National Adoption Month...kinda fitting since we are just beginning our adoption journey. One thing (of many) things about adoption that is so frustrating is the financial aspect. We are saving on our part and I plan on applying for every grant out there (there are a few...not many...but a few)...but in the end we will still have to come up with many thousands of dollars. That just brings a baby into our home, we'll still have all the 'regular' expenses like diapers, clothes, formula, bottles, car seat, stroller, etc, etc, etc, etc....that come with having a baby. I've been trying to think of things I can do to raise a little money, because every little bit helps. (If you have any ideas - I'd love to hear them!)
I decided to kick off our adoption fundraising efforts by doing a Scentsy party. (Since I'm a Scentsy consultant..it works out pretty well) If you want to get in on the fun and help us raise some fundage, then all you have to do is place an order. Scentsy is a perfect gift idea for those people on your list who you never know what to get...there are also small items (less than $5) that work great for teachers and girls at the office. You can call me (if you need my phone number or email, leave a comment with your email and I'll send ya mine...then I'll delete your comment), email me or go to my website. If you are thinking "WHAT THE HECK IS SCENTSY??!?" then we need to have a chat. Seriously. Call me, text me, chat with me on facebook, email me...Scentsy is wicked cool.
I plan on ordering on Monday next week, so you should have everything in hand by Thanksgiving. If you like close to me, I have all the testers you are more than welcome to borrow and if you live in the Beehive state, my mom has an additional set of testers.
Think ahead to your holiday shopping and see if I (and Scentsy) might be able to help you out...and also you'll be doing us a favor too.
