I usually don’t post this type of request, but I hope all of you will understand and know that I don’t do this lightly. Gwen Elliott, a member of the “Bold Biz Babes” (a small, online business group I’ve been a member of since 2003), lost her 10-year-old son and all of her belongings in a house fire on June 15. She had no insurance on the house, so has lost everything. She is now living alone in a nearly bare apartment. Gwen is a VA, so to top it all off has lost a lot of income while she’s been unable to work. We “Babes” are gathering product and service donations from businesses and colleagues to resell on the www.Help-Gwen-Elliott.com website. All proceeds go to Gwen to help get her back on her feet. [I know this last part for a fact, since I’m in charge of the checking account and finances! ] The Babes are a nationwide group, so this is a nationwide effort.
If any of you are in a position to donate anything, we’d really appreciate it. Tangible goods are great, but donations don’t have to be tangible. I’ve donated a “How to Choose a Wedding Veil & Headpiece That Will Look Stunning on YOU!” e-book from MyOnlineWeddingHelp.com and a month of advertising space on the WebsiteMarketingPlan.com home page (which will be sold in the advertising opportunities section after we enter the “selling” stage). Another woman gave a gift certificate for $50 in services.
There is more information on the www.Help-Gwen-Elliott.com Website — including more about Gwen’s tragedy — plus a donation form here: http://www.help-gwen-elliott.com/donate-product.htm.
