Nona Persons of Phoenix, AZ

 

Terri Harrington of Phoenix, AZ

Fragrance Consultants Nona Persons, Terri Harrington and team (Phoenix, AZ) are huge supporters of the Prayer Child Foundation, and we can’t thank them enough for everything they do. 
 
On Friday, April 19, they will be holding their 3rd Annual Prayer Child Bunco event. Over the past two years this event has collected a whopping $7,700 for the Prayer Child Foundation! This fun-filled get-together is focused around the fast-paced game of Bunco, but attendees enjoy other activities as well. Guests can shop Candles for Kids, Prayer Child jewelry or the snack bar (which includes light dinner options). They can also participate in raffles for incredible prizes donated by Consultants and local businesses.
 
If you’re interested in learning more about this event, you can check out the website (http://www.prayerchildbunco.com). Yes, these ladies even created a website for this event! Thank you so much Nona, Terri and team for helping us change the lives of so many children in need.

NEW! Two Updates for Your Business Announced this Week!

Price Increase for Select Products Effective with the Summer 2013 Catalog

You deserve a raise! It’s been five-plus years since we last raised prices, but effective with the Summer 2013 Catalog, the Bella®, CAFÉ and Heritage® candle lines will see a price increase. Prices are being increased at this time to offset several years’ worth of cost increases on the components that make up “The World’s Finest”® products. This price increase will allow your home office to live up to its commitment to provide “The World’s Finest” support and services you deserve. A price increase also means higher commission for you, and higher PV for all those incentive requirements like Gold Canyon incentive trips and the Let’s Go Shopping Incentive! As you know from experience, regardless of the cost, Gold Canyon is hands down “The World’s Finest” and remains an excellent value. A little known fact: Gold Canyon’s major competitors charge 15 cents to 19 cents per burn hour for the equivalent of a Large Heritage candle. Even with our new prices, our incredible value continues, as Gold Canyon’s new pricing weighs in at a highly competitive US 11 cents /CDN 13 cents per burn hour for the same sized candle! Since you have some time before the price increase goes into effect (May 1), be sure to let all your customers know to stock up on their favorite Bella, CAFÉ and Heritage now and enjoy a PV bump for the month of April. Please note that this price increase does not affect spring/summer fundraising products.
 
 
 
Hasta La Vista, Peanuts!
No more vacuuming and picking static-clinging peanut fragments out of your hair every time you receive an order! We are pleased to share that we’ve conducted extensive testing on a new, improved packing material option that has proven effective in safe-guarding against breakage. The best part? There are no Styrofoam peanuts involved! While we deplete our existing supply of packing materials, you may receive some shipments with peanuts, but overall, you’ll see that we’ll be transitioning to the new shipping material in the coming weeks.

April Fools' Is Just around the Corner
Hint, Hint—Consultants with a Personal Website

You know us! When April Fools’ Day rolls around, we typically have something up our sleeves. This year is no different! To heighten the anticipation for this year’s April Fools’ e-mail (and get your wheels turning), we thought it would be fun to let you in on the prank (that may or may not be a prank). Just kidding … We can’t tell you because that would ruin all the fun! This is why we will be keeping the customer e-mail a secret (even from you) until April 1. To make sure you are in the know before your customers receive their e-mail, check your inbox for Rewards in Action EARLY on Monday morning. The first article will let you in on all the fun!  



A Prayer Child Story

Katie Ortega
Acute Myeloid Leukemia

Katie suffered from what she thought was a head-ache for two straight weeks. When bruising began to appear all over her body, she made a trip to her pediatrician who sent her straight to the emergency room. There, Katie had a CT scan and several blood tests. Hours later, her family was told she had Acute Myeloid Leukemia. This is a very quickly progressing type of leukemia. No time could be wasted, so they immediately transferred Katie to an L.A. hospital three hours away from home.

 

Once her bone marrow test was completed, she started her first of four chemotherapy treatments. Each treatment lasts about a month with a 16-day rest/rehabilitation period in between. The doctors have told Katie she will be missing her first semester of her senior year of high school. As of now, she has finished her first treatment of chemotherapy and is doing very well. Even without her long brown hair, her smile shines through more beautifully than ever. We pray Katie will make a full recovery and spend the remainder of her senior year at school with her friends.

 

When you sell Candles for Kids and encourage your customers to round up their orders, YOU are helping children like Katie. We invite you to visit www.prayerchild.org to learn what else you can do to help the Prayer Child Foundation. Together, we are making a difference.
