Last month Hurricane Irene battered the East Coast and caused as much as $6.6 billion dollars in damages to homes, businesses, structures, and vehicles. 46 Americans lost their lives, and thousands of American families are left homeless due to the dangerous storm surges and catastrophic flood waters. Luckily, my family remained safe from the storm, and unharmed (other than the inconvenience of no power for several days). However, I'd like to remind you all that not everyone in our country has been so lucky.
This week I was contacted by a Maryanne Taylor, a Pampered Chef Consultant who is working hard to raise money to help the families affected by Hurricane Irene. Over the next 2 weeks, for every purchase through her website, Pampered Chef will donate 10-15% of the proceeds (the more sales = higher percentage) to The American Red Cross to assist those struggling from this devastating storm. Ya'll might be saying, what's in it for me? Think of it this way: you will be getting great products, and at no added cost to you make a donation to the thousands of fellow Americans who have lost their loved ones, homes, belongings, and more from Hurricane Irene. This is an awesome opportunity for us all, as we are able to purchase high-quality kitchen and entertaining products and help others in the at the same time!
Want to help? Great! Please visit Maryanne's Personal Pampered Chef Website, and make a purchase. Remember that 10-15% of your purchase will go directly to the families who have lost so much due to the storm. Once you've made your purchase, come back and leave a comment on this post to be entered to win this incredible Bamboo Block Knife Set, a $149 value!
Due to the high-value of this prize, this giveaway will be open to those that make a purchase through Maryanne's personal Pampered Chef Website. Every purchase, big or small will benefit the families affected by Hurricane Irene, so please consider making a purchase to support this great cause.
This Fundraiser and giveaway will be open until Tuesday, September 27th, 2011 at 11:59 PM EST. Winner will be selected via Random.org, verified as a purchaser, and notified shortly thereafter. Now hurry on over to The Pampered Chef & do some shopping. We all deserve to spoil ourselves with another fun kitchen gadget, and it's for a great cause!
