Dear Family, Friends & Readers,
I need your help. It’s now officially February and the Boston Marathon is just over two months away.
And, I’m going to be very honest with you right now…I’m feeling overwhelmed by the daunting task of hitting $6,500 in raised funds by April 21. As I’ve shared, that money will directly fund a Trek for a Boston Public School student to help build a school in Malawi, Africa–cool right?
My sister and I are both running as buildOn charity runners, which means we need to raise a combined total of $13,000. That’s a lot of money, and we’re working hard to chip away at it.
But, I really, really need your help, so here’s my challenge to you, nay, my PLEA to you.
My birthday is just around the corner on February 14 and what I would LOVE (har har) is to move my current fundraising amount on my Crowdrise Fundraising Website from $600 to $1,000.
That would be like 40 people giving $10 each.
Or 10 people giving $40 each.
Or four people giving $100 each.
You get where I’m going.
I’m a big dreamer and a hard worker and I will continue asking; I will continue giving; I will continue doing in order to meet the goal. Regardless, the organization will receive $6,500 at the finish line from me…regardless if the money is raised.
Here are a few things we are currently organizing for fundraising efforts over the next few months:
–Garage Sale— we will be holding another big garage sale in Gilbert on Saturday, February 22. Message me at Jennifer.Pinner@gmail.com for directions and details AND if you have a chance to go through your closets and garage and have anything you could donate, we would sincerely appreciate it.
–Pampered Chef Fundraising Show—I’m a Pampered Chef Consultant and will be opening my new home to you all on Sunday, February 23 in the afternoon for a really fun, delicious fundraising show where you can enjoy food, shop Pampered Chef goodies and be part of a really big, fun raffle for Pampered Chef items. Message me at Jennifer.Pinner@gmail.com for details if you’d like to come or would just like to order to support me!
–Raffle for Good–we are still collecting gift baskets, gift cards, etc to be included in the raffle, which will take place in April, but we will be selling tickets through the month of March. Thank you to the businesses who have already donated items including The Parlour’s Maureen Atwood (hairstylist), Wildflower Bread Company, and Over Easy (breakfast restaurant).
–Golf Tournament—if you’re a golf enthusiast, we are putting together the perfect event for you! Mark your calendar for Saturday, April 4 and stay tuned for more details on a fun golf tournament complete with buffet lunch and a silent auction/raffle onsite.
Thank you in advance for considering the ways to support me and also my sister on our quest to help this worthwhile organization.
