Help For Beth!

My sister Beth is the owner and sole proprietor of 2 internet businesses, Essence of the Ages™ and Grandfather’s Spirit™. She has been in business for 17 years, running both sites simultaneously for the past 14 years.

During this time Beth used some of her profit to help others in need:

·     Helped fund and build a school in Basari, Nepal; teamed up with Adidas to provide sweaters and hats for those same children. School supplies were also provided for every child.

·     Worked with an orphanage in Kathmandu to get a women’s reading program off the ground so women could be schooled. In exchange for learning to read and write, food and a place to live is provided for them and their children. These same women were also afforded the opportunity for income by making rope incense sold through Essence of the Ages™.

·     Worked with the Chaplains and Native Services Groups through Grandfather’s Spirit™ to provide prayer supplies to Native Americans currently incarcerated in State and Federal Correctional Facilities across the US.

She did this quietly, without a lot of fanfare, out of the pure desire to help others!

Now Beth needs our help. Due to a myriad of medical issues since the beginning of 2017, she has been unable to run her businesses at the same level as in the past. This has cut her income at a time when medical expenses have risen. Because of the products she offers the Native American population, she has also had some major expenditures for software to be able to remain in compliance with the ever-changing Minnesota and Federal Laws.

For those of you that truly know Beth, you know that she would never ask for any kind of help other than prayers and good thoughts from you. That’s why I am stepping in and asking for her! I know the financial strain is helping to fuel her anxiety and panic attacks, and would like to help remove that factor as she recovers from the events of the past 7 months.

Any donation large or small that can help Beth will be greatly appreciated and will allow her to return to her former self and continue to help others!
