First fundraiser day was a success!!
June 6, 2009 8:20pm CST
I wasn't sure how this would pan out because I hadn't done this since my boys were in Boy Scouts - like 15 years ago or longer. But, my husband and I went down to the local grocery store and put our table out with a sign and some information to raise money for my B R E A S T Cancer 3-Day Walk. My husband didn't think people would just hand over money to us because we could have been a fake. Well, fortunately, people had faith in us and we raised about $100 for this event. We're scheduled to be there tomorrow too and I hope to raise at least as much then. I was very excited when someone put a $10 bill into our donation jar - not for a raffle ticket, but just to donate! We got at least one other $10 donation, a few $5, and a lot of $3-$4. It was very heart warming to see people be so generous for such a great cause. I'm only about half way to my goal, but I have a few more fundraisers to go so I think I'll make what I need. Do you give to the people that stand outside of the stores for their group/cause?

For vets...always. I have a ton of poppies and baesball hats I never wear just to support them. If if is kids asking for money to do a sport...no - the should do a car wash or something. Other charities it depends on if I can afford it at the time.
