I am humbled and amazed and excited and grateful and simply honoured to announce that together we raised...
That's right... not only did we meet my personal "faith" goal to raise enough to build one complete home down in Mexico for a needy family ($6000), but we totally exceeded that!!!!!! And I love that it is $1 over the $7000 because I truly care about each and every dollar that was given!!!! Each dollar is special and will help change lives :)
AND... we were able to "pay it forward" with some of the extras from the garage sale!!! We donated a huge box to the Children's Hospital Therapeutic Scrapbooking Program and another to the children's programs at Grace Baptist (a huge thank you to the church for donating the space for the event). I just love a win-win-win-win!!!!!
So a HUGE THANKS to all that participated!!! A special thanks to the guys who helped out in the snow storm by carrying supplies and clearing off cars, to the food team (wasn't the food AMAZING!!) and to all those helping in various ways throughout the day and then an extra special thanks from the bottom of my heart to all the ladies that came to play, create, shop and crop the day away for this cause.
I can't wait to share the experience with you... to take pictures and video of the whole building process and introduce you to the family whose lives will be changed because of you... can't touch this feeling!!!
Feeling immensely blessed :)
