Fundraising for Moore, OK Tornado Victims!

My company, Usborne Books & More, is based out of Tulsa, Oklahoma, so you can imagine, like most of us, they were devastated to hear about the tornado destruction in Moore earlier this month.  As consultants, we have been challenged by our Home Office to help them raise $100,000 to be given to the Moore Public Schools Foundation. They are a non-profit, tax-exempt organization and, as the official donation branch of the school district, they work directly with Moore Public Schools.

We are using our Cards for a Cause Fundraising program to make this possible.  I am running my campaign today through Friday, June 14th, so please contact me quickly if you are interested in participating. 

The boxes of cards are $30 each, and include a keep-sake box along with 30 high-quality, beautifully embellished greeting cards and envelopes.  There are two different types of boxes: All-Occasion or Kid's.  The kid's cards do not include occasions like anniversaries or "get well," and are designed to be given to kids and/or by kids.  The All-Occasion features, well... all occasions, including some blank cards!

These boxes of cards cannot be individually shipped, so I'm looking for participants who are nearby in the DFW area only right now.  I need to sell at least 15 boxes of cards to help Usborne Books & More reach that $100,000 donation!  Will you help me and my company help the children of Moore, Oklahoma? 

Contact me via email HeyJadeBooks @ or call me at 214-770-3182.
