Having just recently returned from California, it's hard to believe I'm heading back in a couple of weeks for Camp Mighty. However, I'm super excited to engage in life happiness-centered connection and reflection, and the event organizers have built in an awesome charity component. Each attendee is responsible for raising $200 for charity: water, a non-profit dedicated to bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations.
I'm teaming up with my dear friend (and camp roomie) Asha Dornfest of Parent Hacks and we're hoping you can help us reach (or exceed!) our collective $400 goal. Instead of asking for direct donations, we lifted the brilliant idea of a raffle from fellow attendee Amy (thanks Amy!).
So, you totally want to buy a raffle ticket (or 10!). We have an amazing tote full of goodies spanning home, office, tech, baby/kids, personal care, and jewelry. Value is approximately $350. For real! You can see a bigger picture of the overstuffed tote below the Paypal donation button (note not so subtle placement), plus a list of the contents.
Each ticket costs $2 and you may purchase as many as you like (e.g., $10 = 5 entries). We will collect raffle donations up until noon, Sunday, November 6. Anything Asha and I raise above our $400 goal will also go to charity:water so feel free to be generous! And thank you in advance for helping us do something good for those in need.
Tote includes: Sustainable Earth multipurpose cleaner, Filtrete water bottle, Measure Up portion control bowl, Chico bag recycled tote, Hama camera bag, signed copy of Rules of the Red Rubber Ball, OXO staple remover, Robeez booties, HealthTracks record keeper, Baberoo organic baby socks (4pk), Skip Hop bottle tote, National Wildlife Federation stuffed animal, Baby K'Tan hat, Eric Carle growth chart, Ergo Baby organic front pouch, Leslie Graff stationery, Jabra bluetooth headset, Maclaren travel kit, Dr. Loretta Youthful Wri-Lax, Body Shop peppermint foot spray, Posh Peacock stationery, 2 Laylee Baby embellished onesies, Get Stoned jeweled pin.
Two more things:
1. If you'd prefer to make a direct donation, you can do so here. If you go this option, please write "Christine Koh + Asha Dornfest" in the Comment box.
2. Also, some of our fellow campers are fundraising creatively if you want to support them:
