Fundraising info

Tuesday, May17th

Today I mainly focused on just trying to get more information about nonprofit fundraising, but I'm not having that great of luck.  I just want to get more info for my mentor meeting tomorrow.

Money problems

Monday, May 16th

So, the people that said they were doing the fundraiser for me seem to be having some problems with it.  It is as if nobody who tells them that they will donate will donate.  This is extremely frustrating.  I really need all of the money in no more than a week!!!!  I hope everyone can get it done in time.


Saturday, May 14th and Sunday, May 15th

Well crossroads got back to me and it looks like I will be funding a trip for their preteen promise! I am extremely excited about this especially since Deirdre said that I might get to go on the trip with them and meet all of the girls.  I think that would be an amazing opportunity. I can't wait!

Getting more kids to help!

Friday. May 13th

Well, today is Friday the 13th, but I seem to be having good luck instead of bad luck.  Mrs. Apice sold the cupcakes for me.  I was also able to get like 4 or 5 more students to do the fundraiser so that will bring in some more money.  I e-mailed crossroads about my fundraising efforts so hopefully they will get back to me soon.

Of course!

Thursday, May 12th

Ofcourse, my priest just got back to me today. . . . it's a little late though.
I'm not sure what I'm going to say to him. . . . I might just end up doing the diaper drive there still, it just won't be in time for my project presentation.

Mentor Meeting

Wednesday, May 11th

This morning I had my mentor meeting with Mr. Campbell.  We discussed what I have been doing so far.  I brought up the idea about asking future NHS kids to fundraise and I think that will help me distribute these 25 scratchcards.
I'm about to e-mail the people from crossroads and tell them about my fundraising efforts and have them give me a wishlist of what they need/want for their programs.
Oh, and myp riest still has not gotten back to me :/


Tuesday, May 10th

So I started handing out the scratch card fundraisers to people in NHS. Hopefully they will be able to raise $100 each within 2 weeks or so. . .
After school I checked with Mrs. Apice how many orders for cupcakes she got was and it was around 15 and I got around 25 so on Thursday we are going to bake 4 dozen cupcakes to be handed out Friday.  That will bring in about another $80 or more.  With that, the total amount of money raised from cupcakes is going to be over $350!!!
