I’ve been wishing that I had a little something I could offer as a bribe gift for people who donate Expecting books. I know you don’t need any incentive (obviously–190 books!), but it can be fun, eh?
I finally thought of something. I have lots of Blushing Bride books taking up residence in my closet, and I’d love to pass some along to you. They make a great little White Elephant Gift or a Five Dollar Office Gift Exchange Gift or an I-Have-Dave’s-Aunt-Sally’s-Name-for-Christmas-and-NO-Idea-What-to-Get-Her Gift. Or an encouragement gift for a young (or not-so-young) wife at your church. Or your sister-in-law. Or your neighbor.
Wednesday and Thursday, if you go to the website and buy 2 Blushing Bride books ($6 each, shipping included), I will send you THREE Blushing books PLUS donate an Expecting book to a pregnancy center in your honor.
I’ll have another update soon on the Expecting books and where they’re going and whose names are on them, but I’m wiped tonight. I spent most of the day e-mailing and messaging people about the books and getting them ready to be sent. I had no idea it would be so time-consuming, but I’m not complaining ONE IOTA. This is awesome.
This sweet friend is helping me write in all of them (To: a very special Mama-to-be/From: Elizabeth with love and prayers/Date: November 18, 2009/Blessings to you and your little one! Marla Taviano Psalm 19:14) tomorrow. I did 15 yesterday and today and realized it would take me for-ever on my own. We’re also going to pack boxes, label and tape them and put together a little something special to add to the books. I’m excited!
Keep sending me the names of pregnancy centers you’re connected with. I eventually want to get everyone hooked up with books.
If you want to donate a book straight (w/o the incentive), just go here and give $5. To do the Blushing Bride package, go here, order 2 Blushing books, and I’ll send you 3 (let me know if you want them signed to friends) plusI’ll donate an Expecting book to a pregnancy center in your name. (yes, I just repeated everything I just wrote up there–awesome)
Thank you sooooo much, friends! I can’t tell you how much you’ve blessed my November. And I can’t WAIT to hear how your love and generosity has blessed women around the world!
So tell me: what’s one thing you love about Wednesdays?
