Surprises, deadlines & a hotdog/cookie sale
So this past friday I got my reminder email from Rebecca, my Team Diabetes co-ordinator, about my first deadline on December 5, 2008. I was $1049 short of the $3000 needed for Dec 5th. Ok - not bad - I had just mailed out a cheque that morning for $335 - then i knew i had to really push it to raise the rest of it before the deadline. Saturday evening i went to my mom's work Christmas party, where i was surprised to learn that all the proceeds from the raffle draws were going to be donated to Diabetes association fundraising i was doing! I cried - but in amazement that this was actually happening! Thanks to Zellers Central City $500 was raised that night! THANK YOU!! Plus a few extra donations that came in on the weekend - i have no surpassed my Dec 5th Deadline!
