March Grant Contest Winners!!!!

Each month Ordinary Hero holds a Grant Contest where our affilaites sell products and donations in our OH STORE over a specified time period. Our top 3 sellers in that given time period are awarded a $500 Grant in addition to their 40% commissions that they earn off of each order. Our affilaites can fundrasise with us at ANY time, but a lot of people compete for that Grant money each month! It's FUN!!! and it is a great way to earn some FAST CASH for your Adoption or Mission Trip!

If you are in the Adoption process or are going on a Mission trip and would like some extra cash, we would LOVE to have you fundraise along side of us! (If you know someone adopting or going on missions trip PLEASE tell them about our Affilaite Program!) It is FREE to sign up, Go here.

In a few weeks we will be in full swing with our April Grant Contest and we will be giving away $1500 again in Grant money! Our winning affiliates earn between $2500 and $1000 on average during a Grant contest! That could be YOU-- and you could make this much in 7 days! Who doesn't love FASTCASH? (and you CAN compete MULTIPLE times!- We have had many affilaites WIN more than once!)

Ok, so let's announce our

It was a tight race for our #3 spot!!! It was so close, it was hard for me to watch! Y'all make me so nervous!!!

#1 Winner of the $500 Grant is Heidi Ballard from Torrance, Californina! Heidi is going on a Misson Trip this summer with Visiting Orphans to Ethiopia! Heidi sold a whopping $2145 in product merchandise and donations over the last 8 days! She earned $858 in commissions and by adding that $500 Grant, she is walking away with $1358 from Ordinary Hero! That will make a nice dent in your mission trip cost! She heard about OH through one of our Grant winners last month! Thanks Paige Alleca for letting Heidi know about this fundraising opportunity!!!

#2 Winner of the $500 Grant is Tayler Dennis!!
Tayler is a student at the University of Tennessee and will also be going on one of the Ordinary Hero trips this Summer! She sold $1762 in product and donations and made 706$ in commissions and tacking on that $500 Grant she won, brings her 8 day fundraising total to $1306! Congrats Tayler!

#3 Winner of the $500 Grant is Ladonna Powell from Hopkinsville, KY. She is going on one of our 4 Ordinary Hero Mission Trips this Summer to Ethiopia! Ladonna has been an affilaite for a while and has competed NUMEROUS times! She always gets sooo close! Happy to see you pulled off a Grant Win this time girl! In the past she was close, but walked away with an Honorable Mention reward! So glad you tried again and it paid off for you! Ladonna sold $1413 worth of product and donations in the OHStore for this Grant. She earned $565 in comissions! Adding on her Grant win her total fundraised total for THIS month is $1065! Congrats Girl! (Ladonna has raised a total of $1100 in commissions with OH and adding in her $500 Grant this month, she has now total fundraised amount of $1600!!!)
