Have you heard of Thirty One Gifts? I’m guessing 99% of you have but for those of you that haven’t, they are a collection of fun totes, purses, thermals and accessories that are stylish and practical. Stylish and practical sort of reminds me of something else near and dear to my heart….babywearing!
Our local babywearing leader, Jessica, also happens to be a Thirty One Gifts consultant and is running a fundraiser to get our lending library started up. What this means for you is you have the opportunity to get some cool stuff that will help you keep organized AND have your purchase help get some moms babywearing!
From Jessica: “Lending Library carriers are able to be borrowed by group member families who may not be able to afford one of their own, for use during vacation for visiting or traveling families, for educating families on proper carrier usage as well as allowing members to test out which carriers best meet their needs. Several types of baby carriers are needed to achieve a well rounded and functional lending library.”
By purchasing from this party, your price is exactly the same but Jessica will be donating 100% of her commission for the lending library to get it started. Here is how the funds will be used if you are curious.
The carriers purchased for the group with these funds are:
- Only sold in order to supply the group with a new carrier of the same or higher value. or one sold to buy 2 or more comparable carriers if the price is right.
- If the group dissolves, the carriers must either be donated to another group for FREE or the funds from the sale of the carriers be donated to another group for their lending library.
- No one is to benefit from this for personal gain. The carriers belong to the GROUP not one person even if it was only one person doing the purchasing.
- A SMALL portion of the funds may be used to supply babywearing cards, if needed, to hand out to raise awareness and educate.
So far the group has been lending out personal carriers from members to newbies that want to learn or want to try before they buy. This makes it more difficult to get a carrier into someone’s hands right away. Help us out by spreading the word and by checking out the catalog to find the perfect item for you! When you are ready to order, go to this link to order! And if you spend $35 you get 50% on any purse! Yay! Another neat thing about Thirty One is you can personalize any of the items, too!
Feel free to join the event on Facebook! Hope to see you there! Jessica has agreed to make it even more exciting by offering my readers a giveaway of the Organizing Utility Tote! That is what I ordered for the party actually myself and it should be here tomorrow!! I plan on stuffing mine full of diapers! It has these pockets on the side that are going to be great for my diaper rash cream (affiliate link), Snappi’s, and liners. Jessica has used hers for baby carriers as well as diapers. There are a million uses for one, however, so you certainly aren’t limited to baby items! Just check out the graphic and you’ll see it’s very versatile!
To enter, fill out the Rafflecopter form below! Good luck and don’t forget to spread the babywearing love and get a great bag from Thirty One, too! The party ends August 13 so don’t delay!!
