Gift of the Month Club Giveaway & Fundraiser [CLOSED]

Last year I spent a lot on gifts for family and friends. How convenient it would be to always have something cute and unique on hand, and at a reasonable price. Markets of Sunshine's Gift of the Month Club does just that, sending you a collection of handmade, eco-friendly items or direct sales products with a retail value of up to $60, so you have many gift options when you need them.


You can also buy DIY scrapbook or card-making kits. There is a BOGO sale too. Not interested but still want to support small businesses? The buyer's club allows you to make a donation in exchange for a free gift and other perks. If you are a seller, you can join the promo club to build your customer base and promote your business.

The founder, Marsha, sent me a collection to review:
  • Dog-print cloth bowl cover (for microwaves or picnics)
  • Organic cloth towelettes in 2 sizes
  • Bracelet with a cat charm
  • Cat-themed table runner
  • Mini appliqued tote bag in pink


Smiles
*All handmade items.
*Individually wrapped.
*Variety of items, including decorative and practical.
*Unique gift ideas. I immediately thought of 2 people I could have given some of the gifts to.
*Club is family owned and operated.
*Direct phone line for customer service issues.

Frowns
*The only frown is something out of Marsha's control:
On December 30, 2005, Marsha was diagnosed with Lyme disease, which has progressed into other illnesses. When you try to kill it, it tries to stop you by shutting down vital organs. At present Marsha's kidneys, liver, and other vital organs are under attack, and she now has Type 2 diabetes. Her weight has dropped from 138 lbs. to 105 lbs. She has to wear a mask outdoors due to multi-chemical and environmental allergies. She uses a wheelchair because her muscles are weak and she has arthritis in her joints. Also, Marsha can no longer use prescription medicines due to the auto-immune nature of Lyme disease.

The medical cost is very expensive and is not covered by insurance. Her family has refinanced their house several times and now have nowhere else to turn for help for her ongoing medical costs and care. Please help her return to a life of normal activity by donating to her medical fund and new doctor that is helping her regain her health.
Her goal is to reach $12,000. You can donate here.

One of you lucky readers will win the collection I received (above), a $40 value! Want to shop from the club's artists? Check out this treasury for all the shops and a 50% off coupon code!

Marsha said...

I am moved to tears of joy to see so many wonderful women like you all taking part in my fundraiser. I enjoyed reading all of your comments to about my illness with Lyme disease.

It gives me the encouragement I need to keep my mission of giving going when I see so many really do care.

Thanks to bloggers like Francesca who really care about others for helping spread awareness of this disease.

Many Thanks!

Marsha said...

Sending You Sunshine,

Marsha
