magnets in Farmville,NC
If you live in or around Farmville visit Linda at Williams Jewelers to get your BUMP IT UP! magnets!
12:04 pm est
Magnets are $2 each
plus take a look around her store. She has lots of neat items in her store!
I know I buy lots of surperises from her
to BUMP friends. Try it sometime! Simply buy some little something and when you are visiting someone leave it for them to
find when they least expect it! It will make their day! Have a great day! PS Williams Jewelers is right there on Main Street

NEWS! NEWS! and more NEWS!
This has been THE MOST INCREDIBLE and REWARDING week yet for THE BUMP EXPERIMENT. Since the articles in The Farmville
Enterprise and The Daily Reflector the response has been overwhelming. I do not even know how to thank every one of you
for taking the time to check out the website and becoming a BUMPER!!!

It is because of your caring and love to
make this world a better place for all that The Bump Experiment will happen. Thank you for your postings and sharing your
experiences both big and small. We are just beginning so get ready for this journey of a lifetime.
Today I was
getting a smoothie and two men were sitting in their car waiting to see who was going to get in the truck COVERED in magnets.
They had no idea what they were getting into because as soon as they said those five magic words to me, " What is The
Bump Experiment?", I was off and talking! Needless to say two magnets were taken off the truck and two more BUMPERS added
to our BUMPER nation.
I did wash my truck this past weekend and had to take off the magnets to do so. I then proceeded
to count them and the grand total was 186 magnets so I added 14 more to round an already waited down truck to an even
Now lets talk news!!! Eastern NC is on fire with support for TBE. We need to get the rest of the state
on board. Any contacts you have just call them or me as I will be making contacts as well. The Atlanta launch
is about three weeks away before we "BUMP IT UP! like crazy here. I just met a new BUMPER Sue in the parking lot of a
food store and she bought 50 magnets to give to friends. Nell at PCMH got 20 this week. Get ready to see these magnets followed
by lots of BUMPING IT UP! I don't expect everyone to have 200 on their car, but please feel free to put two on there!
A big thank you to several individuals who BUMPED THE BUMP EXPERIMENT this week.You know who you are and you bring
tears of joy for your believing so strongly in TBE! I'm still working on nonprofit status and received a big BUMP of an
email from JM who has offered his help in helping me find a path to create THE BUMP FOUNDATION! This will allow me to
seek corporate and individual donations with the benefit of a tax break. It will allow us to take this experiment to the next
T shirts are on the drawing board and will hopefully be ready for The DOogwood Festival in Farmville the
end of May! Thanks Nancy for doing the legwork on that. Mine need all the help they can get! Barney and Emily a shout out
to you for bringing The Bump Experiment to the classroom. I have been hoping for this and look forward to your incorporating
it into your classrooms. And yes folks there will be BUMP IT UP! wristbands in the next two weeks. I did not know we had them
until Barney asked me if we did for his students too wear and I said, " I don't, but I will." 24hours later
the design and order were placed.
If you are in eastern NC or if you want to fly in for some southern hospitality
come join us on Saturday at the festival. More details to come! I'll be there with my BUMPMOBILE!!!!!
about 19 months left so get busy as everyone continues to spread the word!!!! This is really going to happen because of each
and everyone of you!!! If you get sick I'd personally go to Pitt CountyMemorial Hospital in Greenville, NC because before
