Swap Meet Fundraiser!

The Raven Conspiracy held its first fundraiser on December 5th, 2009.
There is an annual swap meet in our high school's parking lot, where vendors, clubs, and the public can hold booths in the hope to sell items and make money for personal use, or in our case, for charity. As a club, we decided to have a table there and sell several items, then donate the money to our chapter fund for Givology.
It's really a miracle this whole thing worked out, because we decided to do this just a few days before the actual event. We sold holiday bread, old books and clothes, random knicknacks (jewelry boxes, stuffed animals, homemade earrings, etc.), and several other bake sale items. We had face painting and live guitar entertainment. By the end of the day, we raised a grand total of $182. This successful fundraiser has the members of my club really hyped up! If it wasn't for the unwavering enthusiasm of our club members, none of this would have been possible. Once again, thanks so much!
We plan to mail in the check as soon as possible so we can start doling out the money to the projects/schools we want to support. Also, the partnership we want to form with a school in India is well under way! Givology and I plan to host a business call with the schools to see if they fit the criteria of an eligibile partner. Once again, thanks to all of our supporters!
