Mother’s Day wrap-up

I’ve been waiting until I collected all of the funds from our Mother’s Day card fundraising project before sending you an update. Our goal was to raise $1,000 by selling the cards. We did better than that! We raised nearly $2,000.

Two thousand dollars is enough to cover the costs of sending three of our children to a full year of high school. It’s almost enough to cover a full year of Veronica’s university tuition as well.

Special huge thank you to everyone who helped us surpass our goal. So many of you were out there selling bookmarks, cards and accepting donations for us – your support was phenomenal.

I wanted to give a special thank you to Aynsley Morris (@aynsilly). This girl sold more than 50 cards on her own, one at a time. I’ve heard she’s quite the fast-talking salesperson! Thank you so much, Aynsley – we’re lucky to have you on our team of volunteers.

We’ve got some other great fundraisers in the works – a yard sale in the summer, as well as a pilates/yoga class. I’ll keep you posted and hopefully, we can get you involved.

Thanks again everyone!
Monica Kahindo and Karen Snider
