fundraising update

Thursday, February 4, 2010

I am really excited to be participating in this event. Anyone I hear from who has participated in past years can not say enough good things and how amazing it is.

So far, I have been very successful with raising money. Luckily, I have had many people contribute to this cause and support my walk.

Most of the money raised has been online contributions by individuals. I have also sold over $50 in cards and have received several offline donations.

I have also raised $213.00 writing online reviews using Insider Pages.

My family is also collecting bottles and cans to recycle. I expect to raise 100-200 dollars that way.

My girls and I have a coin jar at home in which we through any spare change in there. It is really cute to see them find a quarter in the couch and go run and put it in the jar. I will keep you posted on how much is in there at the end of this.

I have made some handmade cards to sell on Etsy. I am in the process of designing some tshirts for sell on CafePress and Printfection. I have plans to have a yard sell some time in the next 6 months and I have a few things to sell on Ebay.

Today I read a blog post here. Leanne...the Walker wrote a post about using Facebook for fundraising. It is difficult to ask people for money, but if you ask many, many people for less money you may have great success. So I tried it and so 1 hour I have had 3 contributions made totaling $78!

Thank you all who have contributed! I truly appreciated it!
