Supporting My Cousin, Suzanne in the Ride for Roswell

This spring, my cousin Suzanne is doing the Ride for Roswell in memory of my Grandpa Al. I am planning to spend this month working hard to raise money for her, and I would like to kick off an even BIGGER bottle drive in order to do this.

If you are willing to help me out and have bottles that you are willing to donate this month, please let me know. I can come to your house to pick them up. If you drop them off, please knock on the door to let us know or leave them next to our side door! Thank you! All of the money that I make on bottle returns will be donated to my cousin Suzanne’s Ride for Roswell!

You can also donate directly to her ride right here or you can send a check to the address below. I am hoping to interview Suzanne this month too, so I will keep you updated on all of her hard work. I think it is really AWESOME that she is doing this.

Make all checks payable to:
The Ride For Roswell
P.O. Box 644
Buffalo, NY 14240-0644
(Please note my name, Suzanne Manning, in your check memo field)


Thank You to Erie 1 Teachers

If you look at my sidebar, you will see a bunch of names listed there. These are mostly teachers who volunteered to put up posters for Compass House! Thank you VERY MUCH!

Making a Difference for Suneel’s Light

My friend Kristen works with Suneel’s Light helping to raise money to find a cure for Muscular Dystrophy. Suneel is a boy who lives near me. He is about my age, and he has muscular dystrophy. I’ve dedicated the last month of my blogging to Suneel’s Light. This weekend, I will be returning bottles to help raise money for Suneel’s Light. I had a lemonade sale this month, too, and this was my friend Emily’s idea.

Emily is the winner of this 25 day challenge. I will be making a twenty dollar donation to the charity of Emily’s choice this week, as soon as she lets me know where she would like her donation to go.

We will also be cutting card paper this week to make cards so that Suneel’s Light can sell them at the Allentown Art Fastival this summer.  I am really excited about this because I really like those two things, cardmaking and art!

I’m sad to be wrapping up helping Suneel’s Light but you spreading awareness of it would be really great, and it would be a great way of proving that even making a small difference is really making a bigger difference than you can ever imagine.
