On a note that may sound like a line or a story I will begin my next blog.
I am going to Jamaica in August on a missions trip to assist in building(and whatever else)a dorm for an orphanage.
I know, I know it sounds like I have just given my introduction for the Miss America Pageant. "Hi, My name is is .....Ms Florida and I have had a 4.5 GPA for my entire school career, including pre-K. I attended only the best private schools such as Yale, Harvard and Vassar. I speak 7 different languages. I completed my Doctorate in Human Spirituality, Astrology Physics and Ancient History in only two years. I interned under Mother Theresa an after this competition will be going to Jamaica to build orphanages for the poor children. Oh and by the way I am a size 2 but if crowned Miss America will work diligently to lose the extra 1/2lb to become a more normal size of 0.
O.k. All kidding aside I really am going on a missions trip in August. Now the tricky part is I have to raise, what to me, is
a lot of money. The church is doing fundraisers but, that money (the first 10,000.00) is sent to our headquarters who then buys and ships the building materials to Jamaica. If we raise over that amount we begin dividing it out over the 18 member team for airfare, food, lodging etc. Our part is $1400.00. The church has given us a few ideas( letters to send out to friend, family people I have never met whoever) but I need a few more ideas on how to raise a little cash.
So I appeal to you my loyal readers of which I have not heard from in about 3 blogs, got any Ideas? Any brilliant ways to extract cash for a worthy cause. I am open to just about anything, within reason.
If you don't have any ideas can you just give a shout out to GOD to send me money, or ideas on how to accomplish this task.
