I talk about the statistics and let my guests know that there is rarely a better month to host a show because if they don't know someone directly the most likely know someone who knows someone who has fought breast cancer. This disease affects all women in some way and that when they host a show in May they will not only be earning free stuff for their kitchen but will also know that they may help the woman next door or the lady checking out their groceries because they have helped to earn money for breast cancer awareness and education.

I am having a hard time bringing it up at my April shows because then everyone want to buy things in May instead of April. My last host got a little angry that I mentioned that next month you can but the same exact products and a portion goes to ACS. Everyone started taking their bigger items off their orders to buy them next month! Oooops!

Same thing happened to me with my SIL's show this month. But, what we decided to do was for her to have a catalog show in May as well (she lives in MA so another cooking show is out of the question) and this way she can get the host special and more free stuff and her guests can buy the new stuff off of her catalog show. You might want to try this approach with your host as well.

It's just the WHC Pink items that a $1 of each purchased goes to the ACS. Not everything in the catalog. Just so you know.

Thanks Tina! I knew that but it didn't come out right in my message. What I meant was that I am having a mega-fundraiser next month and the same group of people will be buying next month as well. They took off the bigger items so they can buy them from the mega-fundraiser and have 15% (It is already over $600 with preorders) donated to ACS. Sorry for the misunderstanding!

Great success...

I have 15 cooking shows and 10 catalog shows booked for May. I started by picking up the phone and working my business. Here is the script I use on the phone and at shows. At shows I do this when I am taking orders and include that they can buy the products tonight from me (pre-order).

"In May, it is my goal to raise $500 for the Help Whip Cancer campaign. I need your help. If I give you a sheet with our unique pink products and order forms, do you think you would be willing to collect up to 20 orders or more to help fight the battle of cancer?

We've all been touched in some way by this disease and research is the key to the cure. Collecting orders for 20 HWC products will bring a $20 donation to ACS.

Would you like a catalog or two as well, I wil donate 10% of these proceeds as well.

I then take it in to booking a cooking show in with their efforts to raise money for HWC."

Here is the order form I am using, people love it!
