Topic: Want to share good news with people who will understand
I have been busy planning a fundraiser benefiting ccf. It's a walk/run. We had our first volunteer meeting on saturday and the response was fantastic. I think we had about 30 present and another 30 who volunteered but couldn't be at the meeting. I had a list of major supplies needed, like trucks, generators, sound systems, and tents. I got all of that taken care of. someone asked a friend to donate, and he's sponsoring the event. Us three siblings were paying for it with tax returns, so that is huge. Also, we are getting people already calling with awesome prizes and giveaways like a stay in a cabin in the smoky mountains, cincinnati reds baseball tickets, rounds of golf and store and restaurant gift cards. Most important, though, everyone left the meeting with the passion to raise awareness and spread the word. In the face of darkness, it's so great to have such encouragement.
Oh, and if you saw my daughter's awareness video, someone saw it and anonymously have her $100 to give the foundation. I do know who it was, though, and I'm incredibly touched. It was bella's goal to raise $100.
