Once again, this month our Affiliates knocked our socks off!! We expected a SLOW January, but that wasn't the case at all! We had some true go-getters who got the word out and had some amazing purchases on their behalf!! You guys have some AWESOME friends and family who love and support you in your passion to CHANGE THE WORLD FOR ONE!!
So.....our top three selling January Grant Affiliates, and winners of the $500 Grant, are......
#1 Kara Vassar from Appleton, WI!! She is fundraising for a misson trip to Ethiopia to work with the ministry, Yezelalem Minch, that OH happend to visit last year on one of our Summer Mission Trips! Gina Payne, Our fundraising coach, emailed Kara to ask if she would be interested in becoming an OH Product Partner and without hesitation she said YES! (Her items will be featured in next months Grant contest!) Gina mentioned to Kara she should sign up to become an affilaite and let us help her with her fundraising. Kara thought, why not, and she hit the ground running!! Half way through the Grant contest Kara found out that YM had agreed to cover most of her trip costs, so she then began fundrasing to bring EXTRA supplies for YM! She is taking an extra 5 totes to Ethiopia filled with donations! In just 10 days earned $912.31 just from her 40% affiliate commission. THEN she earned another $500 for being a top seller which brings her total earnings to $1412.31 in just 10 Days!!! Woo Hoo!! Girl, you are so showing out! Congrats!
#2 Julie Boyd from McCalla, Alabama!! Her sales soared!! The Boyd's are fundraising for an adoption from China! And in just 10 days she earned $910.36 just from her 40% affiliate commission. THEN she earned the $500 grant which means in just 10 days she now has an extra $1410.36 toward her adoption! To sweeten the pot, the Boyd's recently found out they received a MATCHING Grant from Lifesong! So with the matching Lifesong grant they will double their OH fundraising money to $2820.72 !! Incredible!! I'snt that AMAZING? Julie was also one of our OH Decemeber Product Partners! She donated $300 worth of product to help other fundraising families, and little did she know that her seed was being sown, and look how fruitful it became! We are so happy for you Julie!!! God is Good! You have some amazing Ordinary Heroes!
#3 Kristen Gilliss from Bismarck, ND!! The Gilliss family is fundraising for their daughter's adoption, who is 6, and lives in Ethiopia. They are currently waiting for their court trip to Ethiopia! They are hoping to be traveling to Ethiopia in March! They have been long time followers of OH since October of 2009!. In just 10 days she raised $677.38 just from her 40% affiliate earnings and THEN she earned another $500 as being a top seller!! That brings her total earnings in just 10 days to $1177.38!! :-) Congratulations Gilliss family!
Wow!! Congratulations to our top 3 OH Affiliates!!
We also want to mention an HONORABLE MENTION for this Grant period who had over $1000 in sales credited to their name during this grant giveaway. Remember that means that they still earned over $400 with their 40% commission which is a huge blessing! We would like to give this honorable mention, strong selling affilate, who sold over $1000 in product, a $50 gift certificate to the OH store. "Great Job"!! Girl, you had 2 purchases made and one of them bought 4 donkeys and a half of a sheep! Wowza!
Our "honorable mention" who had OVER $1000 in sales credited to their name, and gets a $50 gift certificate, is....
GREAT JOB, EVERYBODY!!
I must send out a major THANK YOU to all of our Affiliates, and all of you who supported our Affiliates through your purchases!! They could not have done this without the support of family and friends who purchased on their behalf to support their cause.
Remember, Affiliates, YOU ARE ALL WINNERS!!
You all receive 40% of every purchase credited to your name.
We are thrilled to be able to offer this to you!!
We want to give a shout out to Kelley Williams, who donated several of her Why Adopt? Africa Adoption T-shirts (there are a few left in the STORE) to help these fundraising families and OH. These were awesome shirts that speaks the Gospel right across the front for those of you who are adopting from Africa! They also make these tees for China and domestic adoptions. I will be sending info out later today on how you can see these shirts and how you can support this family's adoption with your purchase!
We also want to Thank our past product partners whos items we sold in this Grant Contest! Thank YOU Sow to China (Julie Boyd), MakHappi (Makenzi Coder) and Team Keehn (Heather Keehn) for allowing us to continue to sell your AWESOME items that you shared with us to help these AMAZING families!
