Scentsy Online Fundraiser to Benefit Animal Friends
Extended to July 31st! |
This online Scentsy fundraiser directly benefits Animal Friends!  Scentsy’s mission is simple:  “Warm the heart, enliven the senses & inspire the soul.”  Your four-legged (or three, or two!) family members do just that & are important to you.  By adding Scentsy’s wickless warmers and non-toxic wax to your home, you can add a great scent to your home with no danger to your pets or loved ones!  These products are not only good to look at, but they work wonderfully for removing unwanted pet odors.  In addition to the variety of plug-in warmers, Scentsy also offers room sprays, body & laundry products and car products.  Please join us for the entire month of June as we give back to Animal Friends, and add a little warmth to our lives in the process.  You may go online to and shop the “Animal Friends Fundraiser” party.  All products will ship directly to you for convenience, and all commissions earned will be donated directly to Animal Friends.
