For it won't be long...'till I'm gonna need...somebody to lean on...

Hey, blog land! I have a quick public service announcement today...so here goes!

Many of you may know my friend, Susan Liles.We have been on the Verve team together for over 2 years, and worked on both the MFT & SFYTT teams together in the past. She is such a thoughtful, sweet friend in addition to being hilarious and fun to be around.

Right now, Susan and her family could use some help from all of us. Her husband, Eric, has been battling a very aggressive form of cancer for the past few months. He is the bread winner of the family and he is out of sick time at work while he goes through round after round of chemo. And, of course, the medical bills are piling up and figuring out how to pay those bills is something you just shouldn't have to deal with when you are trying to get someone better.

So three amazing companies are banding together and offering a discount to you and also donating a portion of the sales to the Liles family. How awesome is that? I have experienced firsthand the love and support of this community...how people band together for others they haven't met in person...it's astounding. I'm proud to be a part of it, and to call these people my friends.



The Cat's Pajamas, Verve Stamps, and My Favorite Things have banded together in a fund-raising effort that also benefits YOU!

By shopping at The Cat's Pajamas, Verve Stamps , and/or My Favorite Things you can save 10% now through Sunday, June 20th.

In addition, our three Companies are donating a portion of the proceeds for the next three days directly to Susan and Eric so they can devote their energy and time toward healing and caring for their children and not worrying about how to pay for rising medical bills.

The The Cat's Pajamas Deets:
No code is needed! Everything in the store is 10% off!


The Verve Stamps Deets:
Save 10% on all everything Verve, no code needed!

The MFT Deets:
The code for MFT to save 10% is SusieQ. You'll enter it at checkout in the promo/discount code field and click redeem. It will discount everything on the site, no exclusions!


If you would rather donate directly to them (or shop and donate both!), you can send a contribution to them via PayPal using the "Donate" button on the sidebar of Susan's blog. If you would prefer to donate anonymously or have any questions, you may contact Sheila. Every little bit helps. Please keep the Liles family in your thoughts and prayers. Let's band together as a community and take care of them in any way we can, even if it's just an email, a comment, or a card. I can personally say that every little word of encouragement lifts you up more than you can imagine!

Have a great weekend!

Since Eric Liles is still employed, he needs to get his HR department to put him on FMLA so he can continue to draw 100% of his paycheck.
