Thirty-One Gifts is a direct sales company that specializes in monogrammed handbags, totes, lunch bags and other carryall products. The company was founded by Cindy Monroe, a working mother who enjoyed shopping in boutiques but never had the time to find the items she loved with her busy schedule. She created Thirty-One Gifts as a way to bring the boutique experience home, with the added benefit of giving women the benefit of earning an income from home. The company’s mission is “to celebrate, encourage and reward women through offering quality products and an outstanding opportunity to become successful business owners.” As a Thirty-One Gifts consultant, you earn money by selling the company’s products, either on your own or by throwing parties that encourage others to buy your wares.
Compensation as a Thirty-One Gifts Consultant
Neither the Thirty-One Gifts website, nor the catalogs list a compensation plan for the company. A careful review of the agreement you are to sign before enrolling as a consultant states that you are only considered active if you turn in $200 in commissionable sales per month. A quick Google search turned up a forum for Thirty-One Gift consultants; one of the consultants listed mentioned that the initial compensation is 25%, which increases as others join the company. However, please remember that this information is not verified in the company’s official website. To receive accurate information about Thirty-One Gifts’ compensation program, you need to contact a representative in your area directly.
Thirty-One Gifts Sponsoring Girls on the Run Campaign
Press Release | 2/16/2016
Columbus, OH February 19, 2016 — Thirty-One Gifts has teamed up with Girls on the Run International as a 20th birthday Born to Run campaign sponsor.
Girls on the Run is a physical activity-based, positive youth development (PA-PYD) program that inspires girls in 3rd through 8th grade to be healthy, joyful and confident. The volunteer-led program brings together groups of 8-15 girls and empowers them to recognize their unique abilities and be proud of who they are.
Thirty-One Gifts is a direct-selling organization offering purses, wallets, totes, home organization solutions, jewelry and more. The company is about more than their products, however, and has a strong passion for building confident girls and women.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Girls on the Run as the official sponsor of the Born to Run campaign in 2016, in honor of their serving 1 million girls in the past 20 years,” says Thirty-One’s Founder, President & CEO Cindy Monroe. “Building confident girls and women is at the heart of what we do. Through our charitable program, Thirty-One Gives, we have a commitment to changing the alarming statistic that a girl’s self-esteem peaks at the age of 9 and we believe that, with Girls on the Run, we can change that statistic.”
Through Thirty-One Gives, the company strives to empower girls, women and families with the support and self-esteem needed to lead purposeful, thriving lives. In supporting Girls on the Run, Thirty-One Gifts will be helping to directly impact girls in 49 states and the District of Columbia.
“Girls on the Run has helped over one million girls to grow their confidence, develop stronger character and build more connection within their community. The ten-week program provides a positive environment where girls can feel comfortable to share their thoughts and feelings and to embrace what makes them unique,” says Girls on the Run Vice President of Partnerships and Development Theresa Miller. “Thirty-One Gifts also has a long history of encouraging women to achieve their limitless potential. We’re excited to team up with Thirty-One Gifts and grateful for their support in inspiring strong girls.”
Through the partnership, Thirty-One Gifts independent sales consultants will serve as 5k volunteers and will provide other activations at 5k events. Girls on the Run hosts the largest 5k series in the country with over 350 separate events in 2015. The celebratory 5k events serve as a tangible goal for the girls participating in the program and are the culminating event to recognize the hard work they put in during the season.
