Ni Hao! Jambo! Hola!

We hope you had a wonderful summer and are easily settling into your Fall routines.

On September 3 we celebrate Labor Day, a day dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers and their contributions to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

"The vital force of labor added materially to the highest standard of living and the greatest production the world has ever known and has brought us closer to the realization of our traditional ideals of economic and political democracy. It is appropriate, therefore, that the nation pay tribute on Labor Day to the creator of so much of the nation's strength, freedom, and leadership - the American worker. " From The United States Dept of Labor

To recognize the contribution of the American worker and to help those in developing countries create strength, freedom, hope and independence, we will have a special sale on September 3rd from 10- 5:00. Stop by for some special one day discounts and use the coupon at the end of this newsletter. The more we sell, the more opportunity we create.



Your friends at Blue Summit

 

Ten Dollar Club

Ten Dollar Club Several years ago I became a member of The $10 Club led by Adam Roberts, a very dedicated individual who does a lot with very little. Adam finds those people in the world that are in great need but basically forgotten. They don't have large organizations giving them aid yet they lack even the basic essentials. Individually, each member donates $10 a month and it is used to improve the quality of life of children, women and disabled individuals. I cannot explain how grateful I feel each month when I hear about the projects he has dedicated our funds to and the impact it has made. Projects like mosquito nets to fight malaria, a latrine project to improve sanitation and a school project to educate children.

During the month of September we will be featuring a new book titled Avalanche. It is written by Omaha's Steve Sanduski and Ron Carson and is a modern day parable about finding true wealth, not in the sense of money but in a much deeper meaning of success. Adam Roberts has certainly found that meaning in his life. To support his work, the entire proceeds from the purchase of this book will be donated to The $10 Dollar Club to be used on a project that will affect children in the developing world.

To learn more about The $10 Club, check out their website www.thetendollarclub.org. As Adam says, some of us may be unable to afford to make a dramatic impact on the quality of life for people across the globe. When we join forces, however, we can make a substantive, tangible, and remarkably positive difference. That is our commitment. That is our goal. To save the world, $10 at a time.
