We are now Scentsy Independent Consultants and 100% of our commission will benefit Glycogen Storage Disease research. Scentsy products provide a better, safe alternative to traditional wicked candles because the highly fragrant wax is heated in a Scentsy ceramic warmer with only a light bulb, reducing the risk of fire, burns, and the release of soot and toxins into your home; And with over 80 distinctive, long lasting Scentsy fragrances available, so you are surely to find a scent that you will love.
We are excited about the opportunity to share these great Scentsy products with you and also support a cause close to our hearts.
This should have been updated some time back, but things have been really busy around here. Thanks to your enormous show of support, we sold over 250 t-shirts during our first ever T-Shirt Fundraiser. From these sales, we were able to raise more than $3000 for Glycogen Storage Disease research. Not only did you help by selling and purchasing shirts, but each time one of the t-shirts is worn, you are helping to spread the word about GSD!
In September, approximately 70 guests gathered at the home of Dr. Mary Missak in Memphis, TN, for Arabian Nights, Dinner & Entertainment. Guests dined on authentic Egyptian cuisine prepared by the host and also enjoyed Middle Eastern influenced belly and fire dancing. During our presentation about GSD you could have heard a pin drop, even the children were very interested. The majority of the guests (many of them doctors) had never heard of or knew very little about Glycogen Storage Disease. We feel that the night was a very big success in that we spread the word about GSD in our local community and raised $5500 for research.
Here is the final design for our T-Shirt Fundraiser. We are still working out all of the details with Oxford Printwear. What a wonderful group of people to work with! Get the latest details by following us on Facebook.
If you would like to order a TShirt please email us. Please put “TShirt Order” in the Subject. Indicate in the email how many of each size and in what color you would like to order. Don’t forget to specify Short Sleeve or Long Sleeve for each selection.
The shirts are Hanes 6.1 oz/yd 100% preshrunk ComfortSoft cotton Tagless shirts. Take this into consideration when choosing a size.
We will respond to your email to confirm the final price of your order and discuss payment, pick up, delivery, or shipping options. Shipping prices, if necessary, will be based on your location in relation to ours. Minimum shipping price will be 5.00 for the 1st shirt and will increase accordingly depending on the number of shirts and your location.
This is a Pre-Order or Pre-Sell TShirt fundraiser. This means that we will take ALL orders for shirts first, and then submit the order to the print shop, which will in turn print the number of shirts that are ordered. Our plan is to take orders for about three weeks, or less depending on interest. Once we submit the order the print shop has asked for two weeks to process and print the order. So, we are looking at about a five week wait time from now until the shirts are available to be distributed.
This is our first endeavor of this kind so please be patient. Hopefully this will work as smoothly as possible. We really appreciate everyone’s interest and help in our fundraising efforts thus far. For those of you who know Avery, you know how much this means to us. We get excited thinking about everyone who knows more about Glycogen Storage Disease today than they did yesterday. Awareness is truly the key to success in finding a cure.
Avery's Hope Fund was established to raise public awareness about Glycogen Storage Disease and to support fundraising efforts to find a cure for this disease.
