Do you have a special someone you want to ask out this Valentine’s Day? Do you want your significant other to know you care? Do you have a friend in need of some cheering up? Do you love orange soda? If you answered yes to any of these questions then the Phi Mu Crush for your Crush Sale is the answer to all your needs. The Phi Mu’s began their annual Crush for your Crush Sale Monday, Feb. 11, and the sale will go through Thursday, Feb. 14 (Valentine’s Day).
This is how it works: You buy a Crush soda for $1 from one of the Phi Mu ladies outside the Caf, you tell them who you want the Crush sent to, you write up a cute, quirky or just plain crazy note to go with it and then the Phi Mu ladies will put it in that person’s school mailbox.
You can send them to your friends, family, significant others and even that special someone you wish was your significant other. It can work as a creative, personalized Valentine gift and as a simple way to tell your friends you are thinking of them.
Something they added this year is the Phi Mu Crush Sale poster boys. You may have noticed the fliers hanging up all around campus saying “Have a crush on me.” These boys are sponsoring the sale by offering themselves as stand-in crushes, just in case you don’t have someone to send a Crush to.
All of the money will go through Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH) to the Kentucky Children’s Hospital in Lexington, Ky. CMNH is designed to help brighten the spirits of children diagnosed with terminal illnesses. Sarah Parker, a Georgetown College Phi Mu, said that Phi Mu is changing a lot of things about their philanthropies, but one thing they wanted to keep a tradition was the Crush sale.
The Phi Mu ladies are trying to sell 400 Crushes, but they can’t do it without your help. So do it for the kids, get creative with your note, and tell your crush you have a crush on them with a Crush!
