Slowly but surely we’re making it closer and closer to our goal! We are starting our first fundraiser and we’re hoping it goes well! It’s with a popcorn company that sells yummy different kinds of gourmet popcorn, from Popcorn Palace. Their fundraiser actually gives us about 40% of the proceeds (after shipping costs), which is pretty high for a fundraiser! We hope it goes well!!
It’s hard for us to ask for money, but we’re just gonna have to get over that, cause otherwise, we’ll never reach our goal! If you don’t ask, you will never get anywhere.
So a fundraiser is a happy medium, we get a portion of the proceeds and you get a product, while at the same time helping us! I have an easier time asking people to buy something than straight up asking them for money. 🙂
We are still waiting on our home study and need to get fingerprinted to finalize the process. We will do that next week. It shouldn’t be but a few more weeks before we get the approval! Well, I’m assuming we’ll get approved! lol. After we get our “approved” home study back we can begin applying for grants, asking our church to help support us, and send out financial support letters to our friends and family. In the meantime, we’re beginning fundraisers! 🙂
So anyone wanna buy any popcorn? Here’s their website if you wanna check out their flavors: http://www.popcornpalace.com/
There isn’t a way to order online for our fundraiser so you will just have to look at their flavors and let me know what you want! Shoot me a comment, email, or facebook message with your order! We’d be so excited to get an order!! Thank you!!!!
