the original copy of this post.

RMHCharity events - "It feels good to do good"

A friend needed help:
She wrote - This house has never had a SU! demo in it, in fact, 
they had never heard of 
the program.  I have been in touch with them and they are 
super excited, but I am
clueless.  So before I meet with them, I wanted to reach 
out to y'all and find out 
EVERYTHING.  If you don't mind helping me, please share 
with me any and  all info
 to help me do this, respectfully, dutifully, and with complete 
confidence that I can make this work.


#1 reason to help out
it's the right thing to do.

don't even think about making ay sales or promoting your
products and 
you will do GREAT.

When I went in for the first time they had me stamping with the
children 
in the hospital. The kids LOVED it and the parents loved that
their kids 
were having fun and not thinking about their situation.

The second time I went into the hose and stamped with 7
families who 
all helped me make cards for the Ronald McDoanld house
to keep and 
use as they see fit. 
We made over 200 cards that day and the kids had a blast!!!







After that I started holding once a month card making events at 
mcdonalds, the library, UNLV unversity nevada las vegas



I tought classes for Girl scout troops


and church groups




I started teaching at 3 recreation center in town


so the kids could make cards for the sick kids in the hospitals

I usually have them each make 2 cards, one to keep and one
to donate.
This little boy donated both of his cards. When I asked his
why he said  
"It feels good to do good"



Then we started teacing card classes at the senior centers

And I taught classes at all the scrapbook crops in town. 

Then I started doing charity scrapbook 
crops
and eventually  I was meeting about 
30 new people every month.
I shared all my step by step business building tips on Boot Camp
but now since boot camp is gone I'll keep sharing these tips on
Sherrill's Online Support.


People were trying out our big shot and wanted workshops 
and 
wanted to order products and my sales grew until I sold 
30K and 
earned a spot in the Founders Circle.  

I recruited a couple new people every month and about 
half of 
them promoted.

So what started out as a nice thing to do turned out to 
bless me more 
than I ever blessed them.
Just like the young man said "It feels good to do good"

We make cards for the Ronald McDonald house every
year at our
Late Night Stamper events at convention!

May God bless you and your family,
