As usual, there is so much to talk about you don't know where to start.
I will start with the most recent and pressing news and push forward. Don't forget as August comes to a close that Nichole Frise is selling her Mary Kay wares for CJSTUF. Any orders placed before Tuesday will benefit CJSTUF. Treat yourself to a makeover or stock up on holiday gifts.
Speaking of our Business of the Month I will take this time to let you know that we are BOOKED through February with local and home-based businesses who will be doing their part for CJSTUF. Every little bit helps and we are excited and appreciative to partner with local entrepreneurs. A sneak peek towards September and October:
September's Business of the Month will be local author and RichmondMom.com entrepreneur extraordinaire Kate Hall sharing her childrens book Richmond Rocks. More info to come in a future post but we will be selling signed copies of her book and a portion of the sales will come back to CJSTUF in September. Woo hoo!
October's Business of the Month will be M.Chase Photography. Do you need beautiful family portraits for those ubiquitous holiday cards? This is a great opportunity! More details on Madison's beautiful website but mark your calendars for October 16th or give her a call today to set up your own photo session.
In running news:
Roger will be trekking it through Ashland this Saturday for the Patrick Henry Half Marathon. I have duties at Romp n' Roll so if you're in the area, come out to cheer for the Mother Runner. No official word yet on whether the ladies raised that $1K and got him the pink running skirt BUT if they do, this is not an event to be missed. I hope someone has a camera.
Roger's essay recalling his inspiration for running is featured in the August newsletter on the Chicago Marathon website. Out of hundreds of entrants to the contest (and thousands of entrants in the marathon), Roger's essay was one of about a dozen chosen. Hope it results in some good PR for CJSTUF too!
