Still Alive and Fundraising Update

I feel like I had fallen off the face of the earth the past week. Now that the chaos of fundraising has taken a back seat for a few days (yes mer days of peace before the next one begins), I have been trying to catch up on LOADS of laundry, MOUNDS of dishes, and a PLETHORA of emails that have been neglected the past week. I am happy to report that we raised $1,287 on Thursday night's Race to Catalina event and it was a HUGE hit with everyone. Add that amount to the $476 raised selling Big Stick popsicles, water and chips after school this week and $700 on school t-shirt sales and we have upped our earnings to $8,157.63. Remember we have to earn $17,000, so we have $8,842.37 still to raise by June 1st at 4:00 p.m.

Next on the agenda of fundraisings is a rummage sale, pancake breakfast, car wash, movie night, letter writing campaign (read, begging and pleading for donations), a jog-a-thon and continued selling of popsicles and stuff every day after school. (Anyone have any big money making suggestions??) Hopefully some parents will start getting out their checkbooks and just pay for their child out of their own pockets, or at least step up and help out.

And, somewhere in between all of that in the next 30 days I have a hubby turning 40 and a son turning 10. And sadly, I am sure there will continue to be LOADS of laundry, MOUNDS of dishes, and a PLETHORA of emails that will be neglected.
