Slow and Steady hopefully wins the race..
It has been a fairly quiet week in fundraising land. We are trying everything to try and raise the money I need to go to Yangzhou. We have made some bracelets with beads, sold lollipops at school, did a Guess how many candies in the heart shaped jar? and of course our raffle tickets. My mom keeps telling me that "Slow and steady wins the Race" and I hope she is right. We have less than 4 weeks to go before the deadline of February 21, 2009. Raffle tickets sales have been slow. I have been selling some of my too cute teddy bears and we received some donations from some generous people. Thank you! We are almost half the way there. That is great news! My Mom has also worked with the wonderful people at Aeroplan and we now have an account set up if generous people out there would like to donate Aeroplan miles(Air Canada), if we reach enough to buy a plane ticket that would be amazing. Contact my mom if you are interested in doing that as she needs you to fill in a form.
Have a great weekend!
