Hallie of the ‘Wonderful World of Wieners’ knows what we’re feeling; her dad got a new heart six years ago. She currently has a fundraiser going on to raise money on behalf of The United Network for Organ Sharing. She is looking for either prizes for the raffle or monetary donations. Donations are tax deductible and will get you tickets for the raffle, which consists of 25 prize packages totally $3,000.00 to date.
She has had several posts about the fundraiser but the one that really struck a chord with me is this one.
If you can donate or contribute a prize please know that it is for a good cause and would be greatly appreciated. What kind of prizes? Here’s what Hallie asked for:
*If you're an artist, might you donate a piece of your art?
*If you're a crafter, might you donate a handmade craft?
*If you're an author, might you donate a copy of your book?
*If you're a photographer, might you donate a picture?
*If you're a blogger that reviews products all the time, might you donate one or two of those items?
*If you work for a company that makes a cool product, might you ask them to donate one?
*If you aren't crafty AT ALL, (like me...sigh) might you consider buying something to add? A gift card, a cool "whatever" or a unique "must have?"
Get the idea? If you knit, stamp, macrame, paint, photograph, make jewelry, design anything, have a store you might like to draw attention to, whittle, etc.....would you consider tossing something into the mix?
…one last thing, are you an organ donor?
