Today is an exciting day!! I have a lot of people to thank, and I will be announcing the winners of this month’s contest! For the last twenty five days, I have been supporting Ski4E and the Children’s Organ Transplant Association. Many people have donated Dash’s register tapes, bottles, and change to my efforts. Erie 1 BOCES even had a dress down day today to help raise funds too! Tonight, I will be announcing this month’s winners. These are people who did the most to make a difference this month along with me. They are each winning iTunes gift cards!
First I would like to give a HUGE thank you to my mom and everyone at Erie 1 BOCES for supporting Ski4E by holding a dress down day today. They raised $125.00 for Ski4E just with one dress down day!
Second, I want to get a BIG drumroll for this months winners!!! They are…..
Kristen, Carmen and Maddie Marchiole!! Kristen, Carmen and Maddie made a GINORMOUS difference this month by giving me TONS of bottles to recycle! They donated about $40.00 in bottles! THANK YOU!!! You are getting a gift card AND you are being named as donors along with me when I make my donation to Ski4E and COTA next week.
The Valenzuelas have also won!! They made a HUGE difference this month too! They donated about $25.00 worth of bottles and some register tapes too!! THANK YOU!!They will also be getting a $15.00 iTunes gift card and they will also be named as donors when I make my donation to Ski4E!
Now that my first twenty five day challenge of 2008 is over, you might be wondering what I will be doing with this last week of the month! Well, I am going to be improving my blog and I WOULD LIKE YOU TO HELP ME! I would like all kinds of advice about how I might improve my pages, my sidebar….everything! My dad thinks my site has too many words, and I agree. I also want to make my blog easier for people to use so that they will support my causes more.
I have a goal for next month! It is to get more readers and more support! Do you have advice for how I can do this?
I am also really really eager to do a classroom challenge again! Any ideas for how I might be able to get classes from all over involved in supporting my causes for next month? They are THE PAJAMA PROGRAM, PROJECT LINUS, and PROJECT SNUGGLE. I will be writing more about these causes during this week.
This month, I gave away iTunes cards. Was this a good idea or do you think more people might participate if I went back to doing a charitable donation like I did in December? Or should I do something else to encourage participation?
Please leave a comment or send me an email with any or all of your ideas!!!!
