Fundraising this weekend

HI. I have the opportunity to do a little fundraising this weekend. My town is having a fall fest with music on the town square and food, etc. This is the first time for this event and I just found out about it on Sunday. I contacted the people in charge and got a booth to sell jewelry (I make it for fun). After explaining we are trying to get a local group going here and raise some $$$, they let me have a booth for free. I will be crazy busy making jewelry the rest of the week--keep me in your thoughts and prayers. I don't expect to make millions---this is a very small town and the first time this event has happened, so I'm not sure what to expect. However, even a few hundred dollars is better than no dollars. I will post some pictures after the event----maybe it will inspire you to use whatever talents you have as a way to make some $$$ for our cause????

Great idea!!!! I do have to take inventory of my talents and see how I can use them to make some dough for our cause. Do you think there is a high demand for creative lesson plans out there?!

I have a box of Jewelry that my mom sent me that she took out of her store. Would you like it to add to your selection?
