Santa Bus Fundraiser...Dec 13
One of our friends (Ginnie) has coordinated a charity event to raise money for Dianjiang Kids International (this is the province her sweet Ali is from). The money will go 100% to helping them (www.dianjiangkids.org). I am advised the Charity is 100% tax deductible for donations or items to use in the raffle (It is a 501 C3 organization!). We get dressed up as Santas, Mrs. Claus, Santas helpers, or elves (how cool, I got my pink Santa helper costume yesterday, love it, and a portion of those proceeds went to the Susan B. Koman Breast Cancer charity).
We start out on Dec. 13 at Sun on the Beach between 5 and 6:45 PM, we will also do raffles (Ginnie is still needing assistance collecting items for the raffles), then at 6:45 we board the buses and go all over Central Fla. to night clubs and restaurants getting donations. It should be loads of fun!!
If you'd like to or are able to donate, or are in the Central Fla area and would like to participate, please let me know and I'll get all the particulars out to you.
We are also collecting much needed socks and blankets to send to the orphanage. Anything you all can do to help is greatly appreciated (even if it is just posting this on your blog to make others aware of the event)!!
