It's GO Time

Its time to get busy. Time to stop sitting around and start raising money...May 2nd will be here before we know it and we must start raising money NOW! I am going to check on shirts for our "Team Kailee" tomorrow. I have my fingers (and toes) crossed that the company will donate the shirts again and I can charge a measly $10 to purchase one.

We will also be having a yard sale Saturday April 4th and all money will go to March of Dimes. This isn't going to be regular yard sale, its gonna be more like a small department store. We have people from all around us donating their gently used items. When I say gently used I mean very nice furniture, baby items and cloths (many with tags on them). If you are in the Cape Girardeau area April 4th you must stop by and see us. We will also have baked goods, coffee and water to sell.

I will be giving anyone who donates $20 or more a lotto ticket. We hope you will have good luck scratching it.....and you will be giving us hope for babies!

Everyone who donates $100.00 or more (including businesses) will have their name put in a drawing to win a gift certificate. I am not sure what kind of gift certificate to give away yet ( I need something versatile..ideas?) but it will be a $50.00 value

We are looking to work concession stands as well to raise money! My team is go getting I promise and we want to raise $2500.00 this year!!!

If you can't give, and simply want to walk Saturday May 2nd or help me push my team along I would graciously consider all help!

These are the plans I have for now. I am excited to get moving now that its March and hope to meet our goal.

If anyone has suggestions on fundraising or wants to help please let me know. A big thanks to Newlywoodards...my first online donation and fellow blogging friend! I am also willing to ship "Team Kailee" tee-shirts to anyone who is interested in buying one.....who can't use a great tee-shirt anyways!

You are a go-getter! I wish I was going to be in the area for that garage sale. I bet you guys are going to have some great stuff for sale.

If you sell the shirts I would like one please. And I know that we have never met, but I am thinking about maybe trying to walk with you on that day, but I will let you know as it gets a little closer. Kacie was a premie baby so......
