Our Scentsy Fundraiser

I was shocked and touched when Ann Gladhart contacted me today and invited us to have a Scentsy Fundraiser with her.

For those of you who do not know, Scentsy sells a safe wickless alternative to scented candles.  Which consist of decorative warmers designed to melt scented wax with the heat of a light bulb instead of a traditional wick and flame.

Which looks like this


and this


and even like this


and they have a ton of wonderful scents that you can chose from.

Just click

 HERE

If in the US make sure the top right side has your flag showing (and that you're shopping under our party)

OR

 If in Canada make sure that your flag is up (then you can just shop, don't worry about a "party")
Just click on the flag to change it

to browse through their huge selection and enjoy the convince of shopping from home.
And you'll feel good knowing that you're helping unite a little girl with her family. 

Scentsy Fundraiser, this week only, ends March 25, 2011.
