Our November Grant Winners!!

Yay!! We love giving grants!! Ordinary Hero has an affiliate program in which we help those of you who are fundraising for adoptions or missions, raise funds. We give 40% of everything sold in the store to our affiliates when their name is checked in the drop down menu during check out. It is that simple. We also average about one grant giveaway per month. We just wrapped up our grant giveaway this month which ended last night. The top three affiliates with highest sales ($ amount) credited to their name during our grant contest from 11/4- 11/13 are getting an extra $500 each on top of their 40% they earned in commission to be applied toward their adoption or mission trip expenses. Yay!!

Soooo......our winners are......

#1 seller is Lizzie Barrett!! Congrats Lizzie, you blew this out of the water with 38 of the highest sales credited in your name. That, with the $500 grant, earned you over $1400!! Lizzie is from Utah and this grant will be applied toward her adoption. You can see her blog HERE.

#2 seller is Kristen Williams!! Congrats, Kristen!! Kristen had 25 of the highest sales credited in her name. That with her $500 grant earned her over $1200!! Kristen is adopting two kiddos from different countries. This grant will be applied toward her adoptions. Kristen is from Ohio and you can see her blog HERE.

Honorable mentions go to two other affiliates which both had over $1000 in sales credited to their name but did not fall in the top three spots. We would like to offer Amy Eatherly and Ladonna Powell a $50 gift certificate to our OH store for doing such a great job at getting the word out during this grant contest and having some great sales. Ladies, you both earned great 40% commission during this contest.

Also, a few others worth mentioning that had over $500 in merch sales credited to their name were
Bealle Family
Libby Bolesky
Sharon Wilson

Ashley Rippke
Kasey Hauret

Way to go!!!

You all earned some great commission during this contest. Many thank you's go out to all our affiliates for participating in this grant giveaway!! Also, many thank you's go out to all of you who purchased on behalf of our affiliates. Every single purchase credited to our affiliates puts money into their account which will be applied toward their adoption or mission trip. I have been on their side of fundraising with my own adoption before, so trust me when I say, it is GREATLY appreciated!!

Be ready for our next grant giveaway scheduled to start Thursday, December 1 and run through Sunday, Dec 11. Yep, $500 each will be given away to our TOP 3 AFFILIATES with the highest sales ($ amount) credited to their name during that time period. So if you are adopting or  raising money for a mission trip, be sure to get signed up as an OH affiliate. Just spread the word and you could win a grant!! Orders will be mailed in time for Christmas so plan on some Christmas shopping.

We have some exciting new items that will added to the OH store soon in time for Christmas orders so be on the look out!!

Again, CONGRATS to our grant giveaway winners and all of you who raised funds during this grant giveaway. You are all winners!! Also, a special thanks goes out to Gina, our OH fundraising coach, for doing such a great job as always with giving out fundraising pointers and tips during this grant giveaway. Thanks, Gina!!
