These amazing friends offered to assist me in putting on a neighborhood benefit garage/bake sale this Saturday (September 29). In a few days, I’ll post more information on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/TruaxAdoptionAdventure?ref=ts) and on this blog… BUT if you live in Northern Utah, you should plan on coming and supporting our cause! Or if you have items you would like to donate to our garage sale instead of taking them to DI, we would love to accept donations! Regardless, you should come. It will be fun!
What fundraising ideas have you seen or participated in that have been successful? I need ideas (and unfortunately the “raffle” idea is a no-go in our wonderful state of Utah).
I would love people to share ideas!
I'm looking for fairly simple, draws the most attention, brings in the most money for the effort ideas!
In fact, for the best fundraising idea, we'll give away a $20 Chili's gift card!
(We'll choose the best idea by Friday, September 28.)
Ready, set, SHARE!
I could always sell monster size zucchini…
(fyi, if that's your fundraising idea, you likely won't win this give-away). :-)
While I’ve got your attention, you should check out this awesome video that my dear friend created for our family. She is amazing (and yes, she has a beautiful voice, but I’m talking amazing-ness that goes FAR beyond her voice!).
"It costs a lot of money to adopt three children from a foreign country. I wanted to help my friends in their effort and decided that I would dedicate a song to them to help spread the word. I chose "Can't Help Falling In Love" because it not only fits falling in love in the romantic sense, it could also fit the love one might feel for a close friend or in this case a child that we see for the first time that we know is going to be a part of our family. Enjoy!"
