Walk This Way The Pitch: ASI has started a new wellness program called "Let's Get Up and Walk!" And they've given the walkers pedometers to track their steps (if I had any time, I might do it). This type of program is a great idea for any of your clients and another nice incentive item comes from Avaline (asi/37590).It's a brand-new, sleek-looking, 26-ounce aluminum sports bottle with a carabiner. Plus, if you order a minimum of 100, you can get it at EQP until 12/31/10. If you want to check it out, click here: http://www.avaline.com. The Bottom Line: Good, good, good, good hydration (sing it like the Beach Boys).
Keep Hope Alive The Pitch: I love the bags from Miche Bag Corporation (asi/71022) and for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, they are offering over a 50% savings on their Hope handbags. They feature black-and-white phrases on faux leather, including inspirational quotes from 10 breast cancer survivors. Plus, they are donating $10 from every purchase from ASI distributors to the Huntsman Cancer Institute for cancer research. Use promo code: ASI4HOPE. The purse includes the Hope shell and base handbag. For more information and to see it, click here: http://www.michebag.com/. The Bottom Line: Get a handle on it.
Babysitter's Club The Pitch: The doctor behind invitro-fertilization, Robert Edwards, has received the Nobel Prize in medicine … can you imagine how many babies wouldn't have been born if it wasn't for him? No matter how babies are made, one thing is sure, they are eventually going to need a babysitter. JDL Promotional Graphics Inc. (asi/60370)offers amagnetic, wipe-off
