So today I reached 300 Hits on the site yay! So far my top views was 50 in one day back in may and yesterday I hit 40.
I’ve recently publicized more at work about my plan of going to Haiti and the support and help has been fantastic. The other day I was talking to a colleague and she said that she would bake some desserts and sell them, and all the profits would go to helping me get to Haiti. A lot of people were saying bring in a donation can of sorts so I had a few that I hadn’t handed out yet. When I went into work people already handed me all the change that they had in their pockets and some people all of the change in their wallets. I’m really grateful for everything that I’ve been receiving it’s really heart warming to know that there is so many people who are willing to help out.
I went to the store today and got my new memory card for the camera I’m getting for video once I get to Haiti I got a great deal as I’ve been looking for trying not to spend more than what is needed. Both store I had gone to said the camera I’m looking at getting will be going on clearance soon, I plan on waiting it out despite my excitement. I got an email this morning as well as a call regarding my old Cannon Rebel XS showing interest in buying it, I will be holding onto that money until the new camera Cannon T2i goes on clearance.
Some photo’s have been added to the “Caleb’s House Orphanage tab go check them out!!!
A little thought and a little kindness are often worth more than a great deal of money.
I got a call this morning from Kurt at mosquitocurtains.com and informed me that the first package is almost ready which is great! I was told the other day that two other girls are heading out to Haiti soon to Help Emily and Montana and that we could send the netting off with them.
I also want to thank Rachel Mattsson for mailing out the Hime For Help Stickers, they showed up pretty much the next day. I put them right on my car and I like it, it stand out great and the QR code works as well… I tested it 😛 .
I have dropped off a donation can at my other Job Footlocker in the back area for my co-workers to donate so far I have a few coins in there (^_^).
Things are looking up and getting exciting I wish I was going tomorrow! but I still have to get some things in order and raise some money. If you would like to get some of the stickers for yourself or anyone else and support Hime For Help, please let me know! Call or email me and I will get you lined up with the right people!!!
Recently I received a suggestion of setting up a day at a park or down by the river and doing a photo shoot for anyone who is interested a simple 30 minutes 30 dollars and 30 Photo’s on a CD and all the money would go towards the donations! I think it’s a great idea, I’ve even thought about expanding it maybe 10 dollars 5 photo’s 10 minutes. While thinking about expanding the idea of doing photo’s I thought about heading down town on the weekend and doing what the performers do, sit around with a hat and ask people if they want their picture taken; maybe charge a dollar and give them a paper with my facebook photography page. Sure people can take their own pictures but with my portrait flash and giving them the ability to choose their pose I think it could be a huge hit!
