Can you smell the Holiday season?!

Right now (literally), I can!  

I'm baking some cookies for the office holiday potluck tomorrow and boy does it have me inspired to make some quick homemade holiday cards.  Considering it's 10p here in Chicago, I'm probably crazy for starting right now, but I think I can do it.  I only have to make about 20.

By now, I'm sure that you are all getting pretty bored with Christine and I writing about all sorts of possibilities that you should consider as your next cause.   

So, I'd like to pass the mic to you!

As I have mentioned before, a group of friends and I hosted a crafty friendraiser for a friend battling a serious illness (a form of leukemia usually seen in children).  We made holiday cards to sell at our dance studio (where we all met) and raised $950!  I still can't believe we were able to pull that off.

The  sales started to slowly dwindle as we saturated the students with cards over the week, so we've had to halt sales for now.  

Soooooo.....we are thinking of what our next step should be.

I'm turning to you...what have been some relatively easy events/activities that you have done this past year that our group should consider?  Our goal is to spend as little money as possible so that almost all (if not all) the proceeds go to our friend who will be undergoing treatments for the next half a year.

I'm basically asking for an early holiday gift from you all.  Help me package my urge to help into a wonderful present!  

I promise to then post up some of the comments received as a form of inspiration, as I know we'll all soon start to plan our New Years' resolutions!'s that time of year again!
