Thirty-One Party to Benefit Adoption

A high school friend of mine, Melissa, emailed me a few months ago when our high school reunion was in the planning stages and asked if I would be interested in hosting a Thirty-One party for her the weekend of Memorial Day. She and her husband, Jonas, are trying to raise money for the adoption of a little girl from Ethiopia. They live here in the U.S. now but for the past few years lived in Central Asia. Melissa even had their second child while they were living there! Their hearts for missions never ceases to amaze me.

When she asked if I would be interested in hosting a Thirty-One party for her, I immediately said YES. Melissa has become a rep for this company (that I already loved!) in order to help with some of their adoption costs. Unfortunately, our high school reunion didn't become a reality, but after talking with her I decided I thought I'd try an online party instead!

If you're interested, please visit her Thirty-One website by clicking HERE. At the top there is a tab that says "My Parties." To place an order just click on that and click "Shop Now." Or feel free to call or email me and I can get an order and payment information to her. I would love for this party to really help them on their journey!

Think about upcoming birthdays, weddings, babies, and Christmas gifts that you might need to buy! I've given LOTS of Thirty-One products as gifts and I have several of their bags myself. They're great for the pool or traveling, etc. and there is really something for everyone! If you feel led to help, this is a great way to do so!

If you're interested in hearing more about Melissa and Jonas' adoption story, feel free to click over to her blog HERE. She's a sweet girl who I've known for a LONG time (I think our brothers go back even farther, though!) and I can't wait to see how the Lord blesses their family through adoption.
