I received an email this morning from a friend of mine. She had forwarded an email that she received and was hoping I could help. I’d like to think that I’m this cool gal with higher powers that CAN help but I don’t know. I’m hoping that some of you dive in and help prove me right! And if you don’t already know, you can take part in the gift of giving by helping someone in your local area. Read what it’s all about over at MomAdvice.com.
So here’s the deal…
I need your help! I am the chairperson for the fundraising committee at Sweetwater Christian School. This school is the ONLY full-time Christian-based day care that we have in Sweetwater. To make a long story short, two years ago, it almost closed due to funding. (It was an Episcopal school at the time and the church ran out of money). The community rallied and saved the school but we are running on a budget and are in the hole if we aren’t to raise money through fundraising. The teachers make NOTHING and work primarily for the love of God and those kids. They don’t even get insurance! Sweetwater’s kids and this community need you.
Here is where I need your help:
We are having a Silent Auction on December 4th. We are trying to raise items for the auction and cash donations. Can you help me, please? If you work for a company that can donate an item to our auction, can you please get that to me? If not, might you or your company feel inclined to give a cash donation towards our school? Anything would be awesome as we are truly on the brink of closing without this money.
Here’s the selling points:
1. We are a NON-profit organization so all donations are tax-deductible.
2. Every donation will receive a letter of recognition for tax purposes.
3. Every donation will be recognized in the local newspaper as well as the program from the event.
Thank you so much! I wouldn’t ask if we didn’t desperately need it.
As you can see, our local Christian school needs your help. I know these are hard times for everyone but I’m hoping that some of you will step up to the plate and help them stay a-float.
If you are a person/company that simply wants to donate cash or you have something that you can put into the silent auction, please email me at lori at thecowboyshack dot com. I will publicize you or your company and will add your link or banner in my sidebar should you choose to help. Please tweet, email, blog, or call someone and pass along the information. It will be greatly appreciated and you will be blessed in return;)
