A few weeks ago I received an email from my friend Shannon letting me know that Scentsy had chosen to create a Charitable Cause Warmer benefiting Autism Speaks called Piece By Piece. Scentsy will donate 100% of the net proceeds from the sale of the warmer directly to Autism Speaks.
As many of you know this topic is near and dear to my heart. According to Autism Speaks, autism now affects 1 in 110 children, 1 in 70 boys. Autism Speaks focuses on the areas of science, awareness, advocacy, and family services.
Through Monday, March 28th Shannon will also donate her commission on your entire purchase to Autism Speaks. That's 25% of your entire purchase (excluding tax and shipping). If the fundraiser reaches $2000 in sales the commission donation raises to 30%.
Also, for every $10 you spend you will be entered to win Scentsy prize packages. As the "hostess" of this fundraiser I'll be raffling off the prizes I receive based on how much money is raised. The more the fundraiser makes the more prizes there will be.
Here's where you go on Shannon's site:
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT SCENTSY:
Scentsy sells wickless candles, ceramic warmers, and a variety of fragrance products. A wickless candle, called a Scentsy Bar or a Scentsy Brick, is a highly fragrant wax bar that is warmed to release fragrance into the air. Because the wax is gently warmed rather than burned, it can hold more fragrance oil than a traditional candle. And, because there is no flame, there is no smoke, soot, or lead. Scentsy wickless candles are a safer alternative to traditional candles.
Next month is Autism Awareness month. I'm hoping to put together some posts for next month that talk more about Simon's journey and how things have changed since he was diagnosed back in 2004.
