Fundraising, Part One -- Success!

Our raffle has now raised over $1000!  The drawing is this Saturday at 1pm at The Stix in Campton.  You don't have to be there to win, but if you're in the southern Whites and want to eat some seriously good food, then come on by and watch me draw the winning stubs.

Total donations to date:

GirlVentures (including the money I'll donate from the raffle): $1260.00
Global Fund for Women (straight donations through this website): $955.00

That brings us to a total of $2215.00 for both charities.  We've managed to raise 22.15% of our total fundraising goal ($10,000) in just over five weeks!  Since we've still three months to go before we leave for Spain, I'm optimistic about raising at least 50-70% of that ten grand before we set off on our big adventure. 

To all who have donated -- THANK YOU!!

To those who haven't yet contributed -- please take a look at the tabs above and donate whatever you can to one or both of these fine organizations.

Coming later this week -- another training hike...and FAQ of a personal nature.
