So tonight I had the privilege to be able to speak before my church’s Columbiettes meeting and receive the money that they had raised for me. It was a staggering 1.2k+ and I am honestly in awe at the generosity of the members of my church and everyone’s willingness to join together and raise money so I can go to Croatia. I could never thank anyone enough for what they’ve done to help me along this journey. I now have a total of about 2.6k, which means I am over halfway there which is unbelievable. I’m so grateful to everyone who has contributed money, kind words, support, or anything else to me so far. You guys are the ones who are making it possible to do this, along with all the amazing members of Rotary who are the reason I’m writing this post right now. I will admit I got a bit teary eyed when they announced how much they had raised for me because it was so much more than I had expected. One last time, thank you all so much!
My next planned fundraising expedition will hopefully be a yard sale at the end of this month. If anyone in my area has things they would like to get rid of that you wouldn’t mind us putting up for sale just email me or iMessage me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
