Fast & Simple: Adoption Bug

Category: Family Comments: No comments

Alright guys, this one is going to be a quickie!

Last week I received the following email:


“Dear Adoption Bug fundraiser families and organizations –
We regret to inform you that after nearly six years of helping families raise money for their adoptions and supporting both domestic and international adoption through fun, adoption-themed apparel, Adoption Bug will be closing this fall. Adoption Bug is a family-owned business run by John and Tammi Ambrose. This past December John took on a new full-time job, and it has been extremely difficult to keep up with the demands of Adoption Bug for the past eight months. So at this time, we feel that we must close in order to maintain a healthy balance for our family. We care deeply about helping families in the adoption process, so it is with heavy hearts that we make this decision.
We are going to keep all fundraisers open through the end of this month. During this time, we will continue stocking all items, and keep up with productions. Therefore, you still have 30 days to promote your fundraiser and earn additional commissions. We suggest that you let people know that your fundraiser will be ending October 1, and use this deadline to give your sales a final push.”

The way Adoption Bug works is they cover the initial start up costs (like ordering shirts in bulk and printing costs) and we then get the profit from the market value… aka commission. It’s basically what we do for all of our adoption products. If I buy a tote bag for $5.00… and then buy fabric for the african design ON the tote, I get the few extra bucks left over for each one I sale. It’s a win-win for both myself and the donor. It’s expensive for me on the front end to stock up on these items, but it pays off in the end. Adoption Bug was a blessing because I never had to place a debit in our adoption account for start-up costs… I only receive credit, coming in the form of commission. Get it?

So for whatever it’s worth, if any of you are interested in our Adoption Bug fundraiser, we have ONE MONTH to receive orders! You can find it here: Santos Adoption Bug Fundraiser

That’s it. Hopefully one step closer to our babes. I told ya it’d be quick!
