The product of your inspiration

Last week, I sheepishly put out a call for help in my first ever crafty friendraiser.  Some of you have reached out about sending cards, and I greatly appreciate any help that may come our way.

I knew that I didn't want to wait too long to launch the friendraiser especially since the dance studio was holding a benefit mixer this weekend, so I reached out to a few friends and asked them to help me out.

We even got a novice to join us....he just wanted to do whatever he could do to support.  So, of course, we put him to work!!!

In two days, our crew created over 340 cards and 30 sets of gift tags.  We even had a friend donate some custom made shoe bags (for dance shoes). 

So on Monday, we officially launched the friendraiser!!

On our first day, we raised $250!!  

Here's hoping we knock that first figure out of the water and fast!

Additionally, I'm SUPER happy to share -- Elisa is officially out of the coma and seems to be on the path to recovery.  May the prayers and great progress continue!
