First fundraising goal...
So, I have decided that my first fundraising goal will be for the passports that Rachel and I will need to get into Haiti. Rachel has never been out of the country, and I only once. But that was in 1999, for my honeymoon, to Mexico. Joe and I didn't even need a passport then. Boy, how things have changed post-9/11/01! In fact, it's the last time I flew on an airplane, but more about that phobia in a later post :-(
As far as I can make out, it will cost $165.00 per person. I am making little crafts to sell at local craft fairs, not that I am a great crafter BY ANY MEANS, but I am trying to deflect the cost of this trip in any way that I can. So, I am going to start with one goal at a time.
If anyone knows of local craft fairs in St. Mary's County, let me know ASAP! I am planning on also "using" my table to promote information about Haiti, especially our destination- God's Littlest Angels.
And I am hoping to involve my little kids in the process as well. They already really, really enjoy sponsoring Sebastien from the orphanage!
