A Modern Day Fairy Tale

Faith. Family. Fiction. Fun.

A Few Random Bits!

I hope everyone is having a great 4th of July weekend so far! I just have a few random little things I wanted to share!

As a Marine wife blogger. I've gotten many requests to share various organizations doing fundraising to support the troops. I do not always post these as I don't feel some of the companies are of any interest to most of you. I am going to work on a page eventually where I will share some of the various organizations and causes I support, as well as share these as they come to me, that way those that are interested can check occasionally for updates, and those that are not don't have it clogging your newsfeeds. Like I said, I hope to have this up sometime in the future. For now, here are a few that have been brought to my attention!

This one is great for you coffee (and tea) drinkers:

"Through September 12th The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf will donate $1 from each sale of its limited edition “Support from Home” blend ground coffee ($9.95), and “Support from Home” Hand-plucked 100% pure Ceylon tea ($8.95), to The Fisher House Foundation which provides resources to support injured veterans and their families. Customers are also encouraged to donate the bag or tea tin to troops overseas. Each package has a blank surface where the customer can write a heartfelt note to the soldier who will receive the coffee or tea."

You can order or find locations on their website here!


This next one is only available in certain areas.

"ACTIVATE, the enhanced vitamin beverage for people with active lifestyles has joined the Pantry, Inc., the leading independently operated convenience store chain in the southeastern United States, for the “Salute Our Troops” campaign inviting customers in more than 1,600 Kangaroo Express convenience stores across 13 states to demonstrate united support for military personnel and their families. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, ACTIVATE and Kangaroo Express will invite store guests to make donations toward its $1 million fundraising goal. Funds will support the USO, celebrating 70 years of delivering programs, entertainment and other services to the military; Wounded Warrior Project, honoring and empowering injured servicemen and women; and National Guard family assistance programs in five states. During the campaign, ACTIVATE will be donating a portion of every bottle sold to the USO, Wounded Warrior Project and National Guard family assistance programs along with supporting Kangaroo Express stores with sampling and promoting the campaign on Facebook and Twitter."

And finally, this one isn't a charity, but a Facebook page! I've mentioned several times about my addiction to Scentsy. I LOVE it. I read awhile back that when you smell certain smells on a regular basis, you get used to them and no longer smell them...even if it's bad! I became paranoid. So I was always burning candles...but being forgetful as I am, that was a disaster waiting to happen. That's why I'm so glad I found Scentsy...no more fears of a smelly house. If you haven't tried it yet, you need to head over to OMG Scents on Facebook, like the fan page and ask to join the private group for a chance at some awesome giveaways! She has a lot of them, so there are many chances to win and try it out for yourself. Who doesn't like giveaways right?
Now is a great time to purchase Scentsy as well with some awesome retired scents being brought back for the month of July only- including one of my favorites Orange Dreamsicle...and Root Beer Float, which I am anxiously waiting to try...doesn't that just sound like a 50s diner? Mmm, you all know of my 50s obsession, this sounds right up my alley! And while we're on the topic of charities, there are only a few short months left to buy the Autism Speaks warmer, so don't miss your chance to support and awesome cause. As an autism mommy, it's by far my favorite! So check it out!!

**I was in no way obligated or compensated to post any of these, though Activate was kind enough to send me a drink to try for myself.
