Working on Fundraising Ideas...

Hi all,

So me and Mom are starting to come up with some ideas and this week hopefully things will start to happen. We are thinking of doing a spaghetti dinner fundraiser at a local church hall or school. We are looking into places we could do it at..and hopefully Mom will have some luck with that this week.

We are also hoping to do a raffle, we are waiting for the OK from my principal to see if this will be ok to sell in my high school.

So things are starting to move. We have to move quickly as I have 3 weeks to give my answer to the people organizing the group. I need to give them a $120 deposit. I have 5 weeks to know for sure if I can raise the money. If I do not think I can make it at that point than at least I know I have tried my best.

Thanks to those who have donated..I cannot thank you enough!

Hopefully those of you who live close by (St. Lazare/Hudson area) you will be able to come for dinner..I would love that.

Thank you for your support!
