I need your help fundraising for SickKids
You might’ve read the post I wrote about the Canaccord Genuity Great Camp Adventure Walk awhile ago, so you may already know my family is taking part. In order to do so, we’ve got to raise $1500. Yikes. That’s a whole lotta money. We’ve reached out to neighbours, friends, and our community to help us do that.
Starting August 8 and running until August 15 we’re holding a Facebook auction that is absolutely full of amazing items. (Details are on the Facebook group page.) When I put a call out for donations, I had no idea just how many I’d get. I’m so thankful for all the business owners and bloggers who’ve reached out to make this happen! There are 35 amazing things to be won! I’d love you to have a look at the items waiting to be won, and maybe put in a bid on something to help us reach our goal.
I’ve also had the kids out delivering flyers to our neighbours about collecting beer and wine bottles to return for the deposit money, and Story has been working hard making hair ties to sell as well. The kids will be out selling lemonade and treats soon, and we’re REALLY hoping to blow our goal out of the water with your help!
SickKids does such incredible work for everyone, not just the ones who are patients there. They do groundbreaking research that affects treatments around the globe. But yes, they sure do an incredible job of caring for and treating the children in their care, too. We are so thankful to have them, and I’m happy to be doing a small part to raise money for them.
And if all that’s not enough, I have an additional incentive for you all! For every bid you enter on any auction item, you’ll get one entry into a draw to win a $25 Target Canada gift card. One lucky winner will win the card, to be mailed out once the dust settles and auction items have all been paid for.
Just wait, there’s more!
You can also win a $25 Chapters Indigo gift card for Liking the pages of my amazing, generous prize sponsors! Give these fantastic businesses a “Like” and one lucky liker will win the gift card once the auction’s over.
I want to thank each and every one of you for your support, and I’d kiss all my sponsors if that wasn’t a little over the line.
So come on over and check out the auction. Here’s to SickKids and the incredible work they do!
