Another update on the awesome possum events coming up!

hi everyone- just a reminder its MAY 11th which means you only have 20 more days to place
your order with Alisha! and only 35 more days to get me your leggings in order for them to be included in the embroidering. As of today I have 105 leggings. Remember our goal is 500!
** you can still donate for a few more months but any leggings that come in after June 15 will not get MRW embroidered on them**
Thank you so much to everyone that has been donating and that is going to donate. Its a very selfless thing your doing and I know it will benefit a lot of little kids. They don't get things like this in the hospital. I know it will be a form of comfort to them.

For Makenzie's Live, Laugh, Breathe event we are still in need of sponsors. I have now handed out over 100 folders asking for donations and emailed close to 75 people. I have had a good response but not a great one. I need your help to make this possible. Our goal is to raise $10,000 and in order for that to happen we need help. I am continuing to go out everyday and spread the word but if you can all help (which I know many of you are) that would be awesome.

Some ways to help if your interested:
- Donate something to our silent auction. This can be as small as a gift card to a restaurant, a little gift basket with fun goodies inside, etc.
- Donate to the GSF by sending me a check or through my paypal account to the right.
- Put this information on your blog or talk to you friends/family about it.
- Become a sponsor and get your business included in all of our press, publicity and signage.

We have been lucky enough to find some amazing sponsors to help.
Some of our newest sponsors included but are not limited to:

* Rumbi's of Layton
* Bowmans
* Sheerz
* Dirtyratmotocyco
* Hi Grade
* Amina
* Origami Lady
* Gift Basket Affairs
* Material Girl Quilting

I am so excited for everything that's starting to fall into place.
Mark your calendars volunteers....
June 12th 2010 will be our pizza party!
This is for anyone who will commit to volunteering at Makenzie's event in July.
It will be from 6 pm - 7 pm at Shepard Park.

Thank you so much to everyone who is helping make this event possible. I am so grateful for everyone of you. Thank you to everyone who has already donated. You are so important to this event and we couldn't do it without you.

Is there anyway to link this event to facebook that would be a great way to get the word out. Just a thought?

Kendra, is the leggings lady still offering that price she was doing a while back? I wasn't able to place an order back then but I would be more than happy to do it now. Just wondering if she's still doing that deal so I can get you more! Also, I would love to do something to help out in July. I need to get more info on it (I'll look at what you've got). You're amazing for doing all of this!

I just read the post for the event you are doing in July. That's awesome! I would be happy to donate one of my recipe book organizers for the auction if you'd like. You can look at some of them at www.organizemyrecipes.com. Let me know if you'd like one of those. This is great!
