Putting Gifts Beneath the Sharing Tree for Teens and Tweens

November 27, 2017 Comments Off on Putting Gifts Beneath the Sharing Tree for Teens and Tweens

Isn’t it lovely how the season of Giving comes right after the holiday of Gratitude? This is one of my favorite times of year.

So far:

We’ve seen A Christmas Carol at the Guthrie Theater as a family (the fiancee, his children, and mine).  I put together a tree for the Hiawatha Homes Festival of Trees. My fiancee and I attended their Opening Night Gala (Wow it was amazing!).

We’ve hosted his parents, siblings, aunt and uncle for a delicious and fun Thanksgiving holiday (Thank you Martha Stewart, The Pioneer Woman, Pat Lieb, and future Matron of Honor Shannon Peterson for the help). And, we’ve put up the Christmas decorations and built some Gingerbread Houses with the fiancee’s kids. My daughter was out of town.

Giving and Gratitude are Always in Style

Now, it’s time to move on to doing for others! I am raising gifts to put under The Salvation Army’s Sharing Tree at Apache Mall for Teens. When I volunteered to help merchandise the floor and help families shop for gifts for their children, I noticed a shortage of items for children in their tweens and teens. I’d like to add to their cheer with a little help from my family, friends, readers, and local businesses. After all, I can only do so much on my own.

One of my favorite parts of having my own JAFRA business is the opportunity it gives me to serve others. Of course, I also love JAFRA’s amazing products! They are affordable luxuries (and my necessities). JAFRA’s products are also gifts that I’m proud to give.

JAFRA Gift Sets for Teens:

For Individuals:

On the Gift Set options, I am offering a special price for those gifts being donated only. My commission from JAFRA is 50% of retail. I pay for all shipping, handling, and tax. I am offering a 25% discount on the price of the product and will cover shipping, handling, and tax. For me this project isn’t about profit.

If you’re an individual filled with the season’s spirit of giving, you can select one of the options below to purchase the set you’d like to give. I will put all gifts collected under the tree. I’ll be doing a video on it, posts about it, and will provide you with a receipt.

For Businesses:

Do you own a business that you’d like to promote? I’d like to help you! For the cost of putting a gift beneath the tree plus $30, I’ll give you 5 Social Media Shout-Outs to thank you for your giving spirit, generosity, and general awesomeness.

If you’re a business filled with the season’s spirit of giving and would like to receive the gift of some social media promotion while putting a gift under the tree, this option is for you.

Thank you so much for considering giving. Gift giving and seeing people’s surprised and delighted faces (and sometimes just imagining them) brings me so much joy. I hope the same is true for you.
