Our Avon Baskets are blessings at Holiday time!

Every year, my heart goes out to those who can't be with their families.  When friends fail us, grow apart from us, move away, we always have our families who will be with us for eternity.  So it really tugs at my heartstrings when I hear of someone missing out on those happy moments around a dinner table or tree.

I urge you, as my Representatives, to go to the Goodwill and pick up at least one basket.  Put your book (campaign 1 or 2) with your name on it on the bottom of the basket,  use shredded paper wrapped in colored tissue paper (.99) at the ole' 99 cent store for the base.  Then add some products, maybe a lotion, lip balm, shower gel, body spray.  It might cost you total of 2.00 for the basket and a few dollars for the products.  Use Saran Wrap to dress it and give it a bow and a little card.  You can carry this in your car until you see or visit someone you are inspired to give it to.

Your kindness and generosity will make someone's Holiday experience and they will feel loved.  If you are someone who is suffering from being away from your family, all the more reason to do this.
When we serve our neighbor, we lose ourselves in the service to each other.  You will feel amazing!

That is my Holiday message to you.  Avon is the ultimate community enrichment because you reach out to people who are shut in, have no car, and they need you. Be a listening ear, be a beacon of light to those who are suffering.  Stepping away from the hustle and bustle and craziness of the malls will do your heart and soul good.

Happy Holidays - drive safely - let someone else drive - and....ha ha and all I want for Christmas is for you to pay your bills on time ;).

Love all my reps!
