You Give money, I Give Up Dew

16 Sep

Those who know me know I love Mountain Dew.  Many of those who don’t know me know I love it (because I’m usually holding one in one hand).  Speaking of one hand, that’s all I would need to count the number of days I HAVEN’T had one in the last six years.  Truth be told, I’m drinking one even as a write this.   And now, I’m offering to give it up for an entire year.  Here are the details….

I work for an awesome company, Scentsy.  Scentsy is celebrating it’s 7th anniversary next week.  In 7 years (or 84 months), Scentsy has grown from a small business run out of an ocean trailer on a family farm to a thriving business with over 100,000 active consultants in the US, Canada, Puerto Rico, Guam, Germany, and the United Kingdom.  To celebrate our journey, Scentsy is holding an 84 hour teeter totter-athon (one hour for each month we’ve been around).  The teeter totter will be in motion for 84 hours straight.  To ensure this happens, Scentsy’s owners Orville and Heidi Thompson, are paying $1000 an hour for all 84 hours for the right to decide who rides the teeter totter each hour.  The money is being donated to one of seven local children’s charities.

As employees, we’ve been given the chance to buy back the hours for $1,001/hour.  The money we raise also goes to one of seven children’s charities and we get to choose who rides the teeter totter for an hour.  In an effort to do my part, I am offering to give up my beloved Mountain Dew.

For every $100 you help me raise, I will give up Mountain Dew for one month.  If we reach my goal of $1,001, I will give it up for an entire year.  I don’t have much time though.  The teeter-tottering begins in 4 days, on Tuesday Sept. 20th.  Click the donate button below to donate via paypal.  100% of your donation will go to the seven children’s charities benefiting from the Scentsy Teeter-Totter-A-Thon event.
