I've raise 21% of my minimum ($2300) for the breast cancer 3 day this October (see side bar). I've kind of spammed my friends (who are mostly poor and/or house buying and/or wedding planning), but not the family so much, so I'm hoping to get more donations when I do a mailing next month. I'm super excited that friends have been donating though, and am especially grateful to the couple of people I've never even met who've contributed!! (love!) I'd *really* prefer to avoid a having to solicit local businesses to put a change can or similar out! I am thinking about having a BBQ this summer and inviting my neighbors (well, the 2 or 3 I know, and putting invite cards (hi vista.print?) in others' mailboxes and putting a donation box out there. We'd supply burgers etc..would that be weird? Or profitable? I'm not sure.
