Tomorrow will mark the one-month “anniversary” of my acceptance to the Global Hope – Uganda – July 2013 team. In that time, over eleven-hundred dollars has been raised! I am already at 37% of my total due in May. It is a strain to truly convey how tremendously grateful and blessed I feel and am. Everything is unexpected, yet it goes far beyond that. I just can’t say enough about the support. I am just so very thankful. And humbled! All of you – no matter what your support looks like – you are all amazing.
Last night, I held my first social fundraiser. $295 was raised with an attendance of 13 people! We had a wonderful time – laughs, story sharing, questions, Bunco, yummy food. I am so blessed to see people come together to love little ol’ me and listen to what I am passionate about. And I know so many who wanted to make it out or stay so badly, but couldn’t – that is so okay. I just love having social get-togethers and options!
Specific thanks –
Juan and Annette Valdez who opened up their home for my event! They are fantastic hosts!
Tammy Woolworth for donating two Thirty-One items for a raffle!
Mya Minor who did a large percentage of the preparation so that Annette, Juan, and myself could go to work! And also for skipping Bunco to play with the Valdez girls!
Tomorrow is also our second team meeting. I will be turning in all of the money raised so far with a goal of $1,700 …only $582.81 to go in 24 hours! 😀
