So a few days have gone by since my last post, and there have been some good developments. I took my finished posters and got some printed up, which by the way looks much better than coming out of my printer! Just a reminder the money came out of my pocket to pay for them 🙂 .
I took a bunch of the posters and pamphlets and handed them out to some friends that were more than willing to go to stores and help me. I want to thank these people very much it makes things much easier and keeps my confidence high. I also went to the dollar store and picked up some “piggy bank/ donation cans” I just need to make some banner wraps for them or paint them.
Today I officially got my first pledge which is fantastic put a huge smile on my face and it’s just one step closer to reaching my goal and getting to Haiti to help out Emily. With the enthusiasm of my friends that are volunteering to help me (once again thank you) I feel I will reach my goal and then some. Like in the previous post anything over the 2500 dollar goes straight to Emily’s organisation Hime For Help.
Extra donations past my goal will help buy supplies for the kids and upkeep of the new orphanage that will be built. The Mayor offered Emily free land now it’s just a case of raising money and getting it built; I will definitely need to start doing more push-ups especially to help out with labour building a great home for these kids.
Happiness is not something ready-made. It comes from your own actions.
Thank you for the support everyone and please share my blog!
