Operation USA {S&D Giveaway!}

by Heather

I rarely watch live TV any more these days. On the rare occasion I do sit down for a show, it’s something I’ve downloaded OnDemand. That means I see the same commercials and PSAs over and over and over again. I mostly have them memorized word for word. The one that seems to pop up the most is a plea to donate to the Red Cross to help Sandy victims. The first time we saw it the husband and I turned toward to each other and said “still?”

Yes, still. Unfortunately for tragedies like that, the funds roll in rapidly and then diminish, long before the repairs & rescues are over. Even worse, there hadn’t been just one tragedy this year that all our money can go towards. There have been school shootings, hurricanes, bombings, and tornadoes.

It’s hard to do something on your own to help that seems significant. But kind of like health, every tiny bit helps. So perhaps you can help me help out. To help out the victims of the most recent disaster, the Oklahoma tornadoes, I’m hosting a fundraiser to benefit Operation USA. I’ve chosen Operation USA to be the beneficiary because the funds can go to not only Oklahoma, but other communities that are needing help at any given time.

So a small purchase or donation may not seem like a lot, but it ALL adds up. Just think, if it were YOUR town needing help, wouldn’t you want every little bit of assistance you could have waiting for you?

Here’s the deal. I’ve teamed up with a friend who’s a Stella & Dot stylist. Now through the end of June, a portion of all sales {sales, not proceeds!} from this trunk show will go to Operation USA.

That means you buy something pretty for yourself or a friend and you automatically help someone in need. It’s that easy.

Also, in June only, for every $50 you spend, you get a free $25 dollars to spend in July. And just so you know, half the collection is under $50.

As an added incentive, I’m hosting a giveaway. I hope that will encourage you to spread the word, even if you’re not in position to make a purchase.

Just to be clear — if I RSVP that I can’t come to the trunk show, but continue on to “shop online”, my purchase will still count toward your charity drive?

I lost my vintage twist turquoise bracelet the first week I had it, so that would be my favorite to replace!
