Longaberger given as a special Gift....


I am not going to sell to you today, but I am going to show you why I am so proud being an American and an Independent Home Consultant.  I have always been proud of my nationality, my race, and my heritage.   I have not always shown it, because I am not a showy person, if that is the word to describe how I feel.   This is an article that was sent to me today in an email from my National Sales Leader, Marilyn Imhoff-Edman, who received it from another NSL.   I love being part of Marilyn's team, and she is a positive influence on me, even though I may not always show it.   Here is the article, originated in USA Today:

 First lady Michelle Obama underscored her healthy eating project today by giving U.N. spouses a tour of a working farm near New York City, and giving them nature-themed gifts.

The spouses also learned about children's programs at Stone Barns Center, which is north of New York City.

"It is an example of what can be done with local businesses, local farms and neighborhood schools, of the kind of energy that comes from children having a hands-on experience on the farm," Mrs. Obama said at a luncheon. "And when they grow it and they touch it and they taste it, they believe in it more than anything that we could tell them."

Mrs. Obama also touted her "Let's Move" project against childhood obesity.

"Our goal is to ensure that children born today grow up at a healthy weight, understanding how to eat and live in a healthy way," she said. "And we're working with kids because oftentimes it's easier for them to develop new habits than it is for us to try to change old habits as they get older."

The first lady also gave the spouses gifts tied to the kitchen garden she set up at the White House. The descriptions are provided by the White House:

A three-wick soy candle is an original design from the Chesapeake Bay Candle company, based in Rockville, Maryland. The relief on the candle was inspired by a photograph of the frieze, an oak leaf and rose garland, which hangs above the North Portico of the White House. Our national tree and flower, the oak tree and rose, symbolize strength and compassion.

The candle is presented in a custom-made box in a brilliant shade of shimmery sky blue with a silver imprint of The White House on two sides, also designed by Chesapeake Bay Candle. Details on top of the box are taken from the frieze and the lid is secured by a caramel-colored band affixed to a decorative pewter medallion, an exact replica which is a part of the oak and rose garland on the candle.

Each gift is presented inside a one-of-a-kind, hand woven basket made of Maplewood harvested in the Midwest by The Longaberger Company, which is a family-owned and operated American company that has been in business for over 100 years. Each basket is lined with a khaki canvas insert. A nickel tag is affixed to the outside of each bag and engraved with the words, "Made Exclusively for Michelle Obama."

I hope that the spouses will enjoy their baskets, and their candles.  this shows that Longaberger products can be given as gifts anytime of the year, for any occasion.

Thanks, Marilyn for the article.  I hope this article inspires someone to decide to give Longaberger as a gift, use it for entertainment, organizing, or to make some extra money.   Just contact me anytime.    God Bless you and I will talk to you soon.
