I’ve tried lots of things. I did a raffle which didn’t get me too many takers. I’ve also tried posting on Facebook and doing a letter writing campaign. Honestly, my most successful so far has been the letter writing campaign. I’ve received donations from distant family members that I hardly ever see. I’m thankful for their support and I hope that they can continue to share my goals with their friends and family too.
Currently, I am offering everyone who donates at least $50 to my page by November 14 a delivery of 2 dozen holiday cookies made by me. I know that the batch will definitely include some family recipes, including my favorite: Peanut Butter Blossoms! I will probably make some of my favorite biscotti recipes too. I will share all of those recipes when I get around to making the cookies. If you are interested in getting some delicious homemade treats, please make a donation today!
One of my other fundraising ventures is a virtual run. I first posted about it here. I’m really excited about the medals that I had designed for my run. The theme is based on Jimmy Buffett and his songs. There are are so many fans of his, that I thought this race would sell out. I haven’t sold out yet, but the final medal proof just came in today. I think you’ll love it!

Tomorrow morning I’m running the Gingerbread Run tomorrow morning at Give Kids the World. I will definitely be taking tons of pictures to share of the amazing Village with you. I’m also hoping for a 5K PR for tomorrow!!!!
