We were very fortunate that our ski club made a very large donation from their savings account.  Our school raised about 2K.  Next year we are going to do some public bake sales to fund this ourselves.  Smiley

I have some exciting news to share.  Yesterday at lunch I asked Bryan if I could run a DM Teen Ambassador's Program and he said YES!  He was going to do it, but he's been busy with getting his football team started.  It is going to be lots of fun.  I'm modelling it on the teen program at NIH which meets 5x a year, but maybe we'll meet once a month.  I'm hoping to recruit some of the 8th graders graduating from DM this year into this club.  I don't know if it will work, but I wanted to give it a try.  I am going to figure out a way to hand off the auction stuff to DM.  Smiley

Oh no Bea, I didn't mean it like that.  I would just like to get the kids involved in the auction.  It would be wonderful if they could send off the letters or do the online donation forms.  It will be fun for them to see the whole process and all the nice responses from the businesses/individuals out there.  Smiley  I would still do the overall organization.  It would be good for them to learn how to organize an event.  Last year Lana wrote all the thank yous.  This year Bryan has encouraged our little team of writers to do it.  I don't know if they'll be able to because they are also working on the newsletter, daily announcements, etc. Smiley

Woohoo!  Received an amazing box of goodies from BeaG all the way from Belgium.  I will be sharing a few photos of the wonderfulness soon.  Smiley 

Oh, and I wanted to mention that I put a some of the leftover items from the last auction in the fair I did this past weekend and your donations raised $86 for DM!  Smiley  I was lucky this time to have 2 tables so I dedicated one of them to DM.  Thank you everyone for your kindness and generosity.  You guys are the best!!!

Prepare for picture overload...also note that I am only showing examples of what is in BeaG box of awesome.

photo of mongo box

closeups of cozies and felt keyrings



lower layers: bears, crocheted bags, covered notebook, button wreaths...


wait there's more
hearts, crocheted eggs (oops forgot the egg hats), mirror, and lots of cards!  Smiley


And mind you I'm only showing samples of all the awesome.  

Bea, thank you again for your amazing donations!   The kids are really going to have fun with the smaller items you sent and I'm sure your larger pieces will do well in the auction.  DM is lucky to have a friend like you!!!  So am I!

And thank you to all the rest of you for crafting for us!  Smiley

I'm hoping to squeeze in some crafting for the auction as soon as I can.  I already have some jewelry pieces done, but I am hoping to make a scarf or two.  Lana is going to put one of her shibori scarves in the auction.  Smiley
