Today was my second fundraiser for Free The Children held at Neil’s Independent Grocer. By fundraising at both ends of the city (south end Wal-Mart in Sudbury then Neil’s north of Sudbury), it allows me to reach a new crowd.
From 9-5pm, we asked for donation. I also had a ‘little helper’ stand by the exit to ask the people I missed on their way in. Teamwork at its finest! While not everyone gave donations, I still handed out my ‘business cards’ (refer to figure 1) to take the opportunity to inform 2000+ people of my title, Free The Children and MTC-W. For the most part, people were very generous, especially those who recognized me from my last pageant’s fundraiser, Northern Ontario Families Children with Cancer.
Tomorrow it will be a busy day as I will be raising money at Neil’s Independent as well as participating in the Hockey Night in Canada Play On ball hockey tournament. It was a very successful day; I hope tomorrow is just as good!
