I’d like to introduce you to Joanne. She only heard about us a couple of weeks ago. Already she has something like $1,500 raised, and is planning to raise the entire $4,400 and ride from start to finish.
So I said to her, “Joanne, you are an inspiration. How have you managed to raise so much money so quickly?”
Her reply: “I don’t know how inspiring I am. I’m just outspoken!” *grin*
She is doing a combination of face-to-face and on-line. (And it doesn’t hurt that she has family in the oil patch, I’m guessing.)
And then there’s young Carly. I think I told you about her. She raised $1,100 at her own pink bake sale in Sundre.
Oh, and let’s not forget Fern. She, too, wants to ride the entire pink trail. She’s a Canadian Mounted Shooter, and her group of shooters is helping her raise money. They are doing a benefit ride for her in early July. She’s also had one “garden party” (that raised $500) and is planning another. I think she’s done a bottle drive too.
So many ideas! If you have other ideas you’d like to share, drop us a line or add a note to this post.
