Rainbow of Heroes

Today, I didn't go shopping at any yard sales, Estate Sales, thrift or antique stores. I also didn't get anything done with my nursery furniture or around the house. Instead, I was up super early because I was in charge for a fundraising yard sale for the Rainbow of Heroes Walk. Our District Manager's son was diagnosed in 2007 with Severe Aplastic Anemia and was treated @ Duke. Thankfully, he is doing wonderful today! Each year, in honor of Justin, all of the centers in our district host fundraisers from February-April to raise money for this worthy cause.

So far, we have raised $704! Our goal is $1000. We had hoped that our yard sale would put us over that, but we lacked both material donations and sales.

I think our next fundraiser will be a Krispy Kreme sale! Yum! If anyone has any ideas on short term fundraisers, please let me know!

Have a wonderful weekend!

What a wonderful way to give back. I'm glad your friend's son is doing well.

Thanks for your visit!
