Giving Back

One great thing I love about my Tastefully Simple business is that it allows me to give back. I love to do fundraisers and raise money for my and my hosts favorite charities.

This month I am starting a very special fundraiser for a very special cause:
I've seen more than a few of my loved ones battle this disease. Growing up, I watched my Godmother battle the disease that would eventually take her life in 2012. Most recently, a college friend and my sister in-law were diagnosed and I hate to see them have to fight this nasty disease. This is not a disease that affects the old and sickly. Strong, healthy, beautiful women are being diagnosed every day which is why research and support for them is so badly needed. chose the charity Living Beyond Breast Cancer to donate to. They donate 84 cents on dollar for every donation they receive and they assist women through every possible stage of the disease. It was founded in 1991 by a radiation oncologist and strives to provide education and support for patients and their families  regardless of educational background, social support or financial means. It is a little lesser known than the bigger charities out there but after doing my research LBBC was at the top of all the charities listed.
One of the wonderful things about this fundraiser is that you can double dip! This fundraiser will run now through March 21st which means you can stock up on all the goodies from the Fall/Winter catalog which will end on March 8th AND you can shop the brand spankin' new Spring/Summer catalog (It's got some AMAZING new goodies!) . 10% of my earnings will go directly to Living Beyond Breast Cancer. You can help me give back to this wonderful charity a few ways:
