I am reaching out to ask you to help me support a fantastic cause! This holiday season (along with some of my Arbonne friends and family), we will be collecting funds to purchase basic Arbonne personal care products for women and children living in shelters for domestic violence protection (Hope House and Synergy Services). We chose to focus on this group because we felt they were underserved. Many charities focus on collecting clothes and toys for children at the holidays, but very few focus on the women who made the hard choice to move their family to a shelter to protect them from harm. Last year, my friends in New Hampshire gave over 250 care packages and distributed them to make the holidays a brighter place for women who may have left home with nothing more than the clothes on their backs!
This year we are hoping to gift at least 100 women in the Kansas City area. My goal is to serve 30 on my own! The only way I can do that is with your help! I am accepting financial donations of ANY amount. Or you can sponsor one or more full care packages ($55 each). These packages include luxurious Arbonne FC5 body wash, shampoo, conditioner and body lotion that should last the women at least 4 months packaged in a durable and attractive tote! (That's $13.75 per item and $3.45 per month's use)!
If you choose to sponsor a full package, you may also include a holiday card to be placed in the package identifying you as the donor or you may remain anonymous.
100% of the funds raised will be used to purchase product at my cost. I will cover the shipping expenses as well as expenses for wrapping materials and any extraneous costs out of pocket to be sure that your donated funds are used only for products for the care packages. If desired, I will arrange for you to get a tax receipt from the recipient shelter. You may send a check, or to make it more convenient, you can donate online here: http://www.crowdrise.com/womenssheltershopeforholidays/fundraiser/jessicavandenbos
Please do not hesitate to call me if you have any questions or comments on this initiative. It will be my pleasure to discuss it further with you.
Thank you in advance for your support!
