Ok, that might be a little misleading.. a company that I’m a distributor for is going to be on Martha Stewart! (Thursday the 24th)
I’m so excited. For years I’ve been using Young Living products and because they are a MLM Company I think they have a reputation for pushing products.
Personally, I don’t push them. I don’t care if you use them or not.. of course *I* use them.. I love them and I know many a dog who has benefitted from the essential oils. I take two of their supplements daily and have really found that I feel better!
Anywho, I think this little stint on Martha will help lend a little credibility to the products. They are excellent, in my humble opinion, but unfortunately, there have been too many distributors that are not informed fully on how essential oils work. I’ve heard recommendations for animals that are not really safe. Actually, I’ve heard recommendations for people that aren’t really safe!
Too much oil is usually the big one… a little goes a long way people! But then if you sell someone too much oil, well you make a little too much money I think!
Here’s hoping it’s done well. Tune it.. it might be good!
What they have done for pitbulls is nothing short of amazing.
Out of the Pits, a non-profit organization founded in 1996, is dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of those Pit Bulls that have been abandoned and abused. We seek to educate the public about the true nature of the Pit Bull and to restore the breed to its former position of esteem in the hearts and minds of people everywhere.
Many of their dogs up for adoption have their CGC and their TDI… yeah, these dogs, thought to be killers by so many, are visiting hospitals and helping people feel better! How Shocking!
Karen sent me an email about this post, asking if I had only $5.00.
Well, yeah, I did.. and I was going to use it on Ebay.. or maybe lunch.. I’d been craving some nasty food.
Ok I couldn’t spend it on me.. I gave it to her friends Chris and Jenn for their trip to Swaziland. (at the end of May to volunteer a month of their time, and as many supplies as they can muster to the small town of Manzini..) They raised almost $1100 from the blogosphere alone! Holy cow!
Well, I thought.. if I have $5.00 for them.. who ELSE do I have $5.00 for?
Turns out I had a few extra $5.00 floating around.. Sure, it meant I had to bring my lunch to work (GASP!), but what the heck.. it didn’t kill me… and I decided to do it every payday aka Friday. And I’m going to tell you all about it!
So, $5.00 on Friday is my attempt to encourage others to find their extra $5.00 and give it to someone who needs it more that they do.
If a Friday rolls around and you find you’ve got a little extra, give it away to someone. And then blog it! Let everyone know about your charity and why you love it.
This is the best post I’ve read in a long time. Read it here Karen has written an amazing post about how there are reflections in our daily lives. It really mirrors what I’ve always felt. (no pun intended)
