************************************************************************************

BONUS DAY!  We learned that due to several hours of
technical difficulties when the Paypal button didn't work, some of you
may have missed out on this great sale!  We are so sorry and don't want anyone to miss
the chance to get these incredible savings, so we're extending the sale
to midnight tonight, January 30.


This may be
the most amazing opportunity you have ever seen!

How would you like to:

1. Get more than $339 worth of homeschooling & parenting materials for only $39
2. Be entered to win another $849+ worth of additional curriculum and book
3. All while helping a homeschool family in need?

 

 

 

You may know Jeff & Kate Estes as the owners of Hands and Hearts, or as the parents of Noah Estes, their medically fragile son.  If you don't know them, or just want to learn more about their story and why their friends are doing this sale for them, check out this post at Kate's blog.  You can also read about them here as well.

 


My name is Donny Godsey.  As a TV producer and personal friend of the Estes family, I'm glad to be able to help them in a creative way.  I know the Estes family personally and I know you are going to be as excited about this opportunity as I am.  Dozens of well-known homeschool publishers and authors have teamed up to offer a package of their best e-books and audio books for just pennies on the dollar.  They are not making a dime off of any of these sales - 100% of the proceeds are going directly to the Estes family.  As if this weren't generous enough, they have also contributed actual physical books for prize packages totally over $849 each!  Why would the do this?  Because they know this family and care about them as much as I do.

     As Jeff and Kate’s friend (and speaking on behalf of their other friends who 
                                      have contributed to this sale),                                   
                                  I would ask you to do three things:                              

  1. Please keep the Estes family in your prayers, both that the Lord would bless the work of their hands in this new business endeavor and that the Lord would bless and protect little Noah who is still struggling greatly.
     
  2. I’m asking each of you to prayerfully considering making a donation of $39 or more using the Paypal donate button at the bottom of the page.  If you would like to donate via check or money order, you may do so as well and there are details about that at the bottom of the page as well.  As you scroll through this page on the way to that button, you will see a listing of every item in our massive Thank You Resource Package.  You will receive every item in this package as our way of saying “thank you” for your support.  I firmly believe (and I’m sure you’ll agree) that you will be greatly blessed by being able to receive these fantastic resources at just pennies on the dollar – this is a chance both to be a blessing and to be blessed yourself!  I would also like you to know that the Estes specifically asked that the minimum donation price be set low because they would like as many people as possible to be able to receive this wonderful package!
     
  3. Tell your friends about this event.  We’re asking to you blog, tweet, email, post, call or do whatever necessary to get the word out.  This will ONLY work if we can get the word out - let's create a storm of publicity all over the internet. When your friends see this package, they’ll be thanking you for giving them a heads-up!

         Are you ready to take a look at all of the amazing goodies in the        
Thank You Resource Package?   (Be sure to keep reading to see the prize
                                         packages at the end!)                                               

 Be sure to get comfy because this is a long list!  Remember, each and every item here was donated by friends and colleagues of the Estes family with 100% of the proceeds going directly to this family.

E-books: What do I do with them All? By Michelle Geffkin

This Book is Being Read by: Bookmarks by Elisabeth Geffkin

Artful Advent: Celebrate the Season with Art by Michelle Geffkin

Michelle Geffkin’s company, Yes, You Can! Publications is certainly aptly named.  Her resources encourage, educate, and inspire, leaving the reader feeling that yes, in fact, she can!  Michelle has graciously contributed four amazing resources:

1. Are you interested in multiplying your homeschool efforts to so you can maximize your children’s learning experiences?  Would you like to learn how to help your little ones increase their attention spans?  What about finding the best free audio resources online, and being given the tools and planners needed to put those audios to good use?  The Listening Lunch will give you all of these tools and more, from a list of recommended audios sorted by age list (instant links included) to information on effectively using audio to build your children’s faith or to help them with subjects like math, history, science – even geography!  Retail Price $14.95

2. If you’re like me, the list of e-books available in this package looks amazing . . . but maybe a little overwhelming too!  e-books: What do I do with them All? (NOT pictured above) will give you the practical tools to organize and really use these e-books and any others you may already have.  It’s the perfect addition to this download package – talk about practical!  Retail Price $9.95

3.

Retail Price $7.95

4. Don’t lose sight of Christ in the chaos of Christmas.  Just imagine if you could take a break from the busyness, make rich memories with your children, and open your children’s eyes to the reality of Christ’s birth!  Artist Michelle Geffkin has created an amazing resource – Artful Advent – that can help you do all this and more while painlessly teaching your children about art.  Even if you have no art experience, Michelle assures you, “Using Artful Advent will start you on the road to confidence and success with art in your homeschool.”  Not limited to Christmas time alone, this e-book will give you ideas you can apply all year long, projects to do with your children (good news – you probably already have almost everything needed, and Michelle’s even included planning forms to ensure your success), and even live links to artist’s websites.  Retail Price  $17.95

WOW!!

     Now you’ve probably gotten to the end of this list thinking that there must be some sort of catch, or that I must have made a typo in listing the minimum donation amount, but be assured that there has been no mistake.  You can receive every single item listed above for your donation of only $39 or more!  Considering that this package has a retail value of over $330, you’ll be getting the deal of a lifetime here. . .    
     but the deals are still coming!

Your subscription will start with the Spring Issue, and here’s a little sneak peek at what’s inside: 

  • Articles on travel, Biblical flowers, teaching math across the grades, marine biology, gardening and much more.

  • Experience a bit of history with a cast iron campfire dinner as well as info on camps of all kinds.

  • Unit study/drawing lesson from Carolyn Hurst (author of the popular Draw, Write, Now series).

Now, you’ve probably noticed that I keep using the phrase, “or more.

There is an excellent reason for this.  Like I said, the Estes want to see all of you blessed by receiving such an amazing package at a truly affordable price, but I also believe that there are many of you who are able and willing to donate even more.  As a special thank you to those who would like to go above and beyond, we have an additional package of exclusive goodies that will be sent to those who donate above the minimum.  We aren’t going to list the contents here but can say that the extra goodies are valued at over $150 – and we are confident that you will be thrilled with what you get!  If you would like to donate above the minimum, simply enter the amount you would like to give when checking out.

Mommy Luxury Bag

from The Estes Family & others

Three First Prize winners will be randomly selected to receive a Mommy Luxury Bag, valued at over $100!   This bag is jam-packed with all sorts of delightful treats and luxuries just for you, and we hope you enjoy it!  The photo only shows a fraction of all that is in the bag – take a look at all of the goodies you’ll get to make each part of your day special:

Ø     First is the bag itself.  This lovely bag was hand painted by Kate Estes and once your name is drawn, she will contact you so that it may be monogrammed with the initial of your choice!

Ø     Start your day off right with yummy-smelling and luxurious Grapefruit Citrus Shower Gel and Lotion – we’re hoping this energizing scent will pamper you while helping you wake up and face the day!

Ø     After you’ve showered, head into the kitchen to make breakfast.  Put on a lovely hand-painted apron made by Kate and Hannah Estes so your clothes stay tidy, then enjoy a jar of Triple Berry Jam made by Kate and the Estes children!  If you need to jot down an item for your shopping or to-do lists, just reach for the elegant notepad and matching pen.  When it’s time to wash your hands, a bottle of Bath and Body Works hand soap will be standing at the ready!

Ø     Homeschooling is probably a big part of your day, so we’ve got some goodies to help here as well.  You’ll get a $10 gift card from www.sonbeams.com (we suggest that you consider her ABC Bible Memory Verse CD) and an e-Book version of Raising Real Men from www.raisingrealmen.com .  We’ve also tucked in a package of gorgeous (trust us!) paper clips that will bring a smile every time you use them.

Ø     We’re guessing that by mid-afternoon you might be ready for a bit of a break.  Now is the time to pull out your pretty new mug stuffed with gourmet flavored hot chocolate mixes and biscotti’s – yum!

Ø     Once the day is over, we want you to climb into bed and relax.  Pop one of the two enclosed Yankee Candle votive candles into your new crackle-glass votive holder and light it to set a relaxing mood.  Kate has made you a reusable hot pad filled with rice and lavender – it’s lovely draped around your shoulders to ease tired muscles or tucked between the sheets to warm cold feet.  Grab the Dove chocolates if you need to nibble and enjoy reading the book you bought with your $10 Barnes and Noble gift card!  Sweet dreams!
