Editor's Note:  Thank you to Randy Houk of www.thebenefactory.com for sharing the following information about a work-at-home opportunity for moms.  Contact randy@thebenefactory.com for additional information.  Lisa

Mother Melania, of Holy Assumption Monastery in Calistoga, CA, has a new partnership with The Benefactory, a 21 year-old publisher of wholesome, nurturing children’s stories (also CDs, DVDs, toys and puzzles.)  Together they have launched a unique opportunity for work-at-home-moms – Storytelling events in homes, schools, libraries and churches.  Storytellers (usually moms, teachers, or grandparents) sign on for their own home-based business, hold events for other parents or parents with children, read stories to the children, and set them up with art activities, while parents browse the products.  Storytellers keep 25% of their event sales, and love the concept of performing a community service, and empowering children in family values and reading.

The Benefactory distributes 19 of Mother Melania’s ‘Halo Stories’ and is publishing her ‘Good Neighbors’ tales about animals learning character and morals, in the fall.  Sales of both series help support both Holy Assumption and St Barbara Monasteries.  The Benefactory also publishes true stories about animals, sales of which benefit 12 nonprofit animal protection organizations.
