We interrupt this regularly scheduled program where I tell you all of my shortcomings as a mom to do something really exciting.
WE ARE SELLING LIP BALM!!! All natural, organic lip balm. The best part? Your money goes directly to one of my favorite organizations of all time, The Adventure Project, to fund clean water solutions.
A few months ago I had coffee with my sis-in-law, Leslie and her friend (my new friend, woot!) Jennie to talk about what we could do to support TAP. Leslie had just written an article about making your own lip balm and it was there that the idea was born.
So here's the deal. If you buy your tin(s) today you can help fully fund TAP's program (read more at Jody's blog here). Time is certainly of the essence. I want you to buy them for your moms, your sisters, your aunties. EVERYONE. If you're like me and know of some of your women friends going through some stuff right now this would be the perfect, "I love you, I'm thinking of you constantly and please know I wish I could be there for you" gift.
This is the website Leslie set up to tell you more about ADVENTUREbalm.
So go here and buy 1 tin for $7 or 3 for $15. Leave me a comment or email me your address and I will send them. If you're local I will hand deliver (oh yes I will!)
All directions are on this website.
Here's what I know. I screwed up last night as a mom. I forgot to be the tooth fairy, I put the kids down early so I could start Desperate Housewives, etc. Despite all of that, I'm using this lip balm as a way to do something today to redeem myself.
Because grace isn't always big gestures. Sometimes grace comes in the form of lip balm.
