Chosen - a Fundraiser

Welcome to my first Avon fundraiser.

I talked a couple of posts ago on how you can earn money with Avon, well the same ideas can be applied to fundraising. All of my profits (the part I earn from the Avon discount) from customer purchases in Campaign 25 will go the Angel Tree Fund for a special little boy in Eastern Europe.

On Reeces Rainbow, he is given the alias Christian. He is a sweet 4 year old boy who's only misfortune was being born with down syndrome in a country that doesn't yet accept that a child with special needs has value. He currently lives in a 'baby house' but the next step for him in a couple of years will be an adult mental hospital.

You can read more about Christian on my family blog here A Home for the Holiday and if you want, you can search this tag  to find my posts from last year and the year before.  This is a cause that I'm really committed to. I explored adoption, special needs adoption in particular before I had the boys (and continue to consider it).

But back to fundraising. It's quite simple, be in my delivery area, order from me in Campaign 25. The discount I get from Avon will go to Christian's fund instead of my pocket. I am a gold level rep, this means for beauty products (make-up, perfume, bath products) 35% of your payment will go to Christian. For everything else, it's 15%.  This can add up very fast. You get great products at a great price, this boy gets a chance at a family and a future.

I will be doing a contest this campaign towards this fundraiser, but I'm working out the details. I have to allow for entries not related to a purchase or a donation that still help his cause. I hope to  have his up by the weekend. It will be open world wide.

To get you started, you can find the e-brochure here
