– Simplify Your Fundraising Strategy


For years, I have been in the fundraising business. I began with the American Heart Association. Then I went on to a job where I helped put together some huge events to help feed the hungry. Next as a volunteer with the Junior League of Atlanta. Finally, with the school that my children attend. It seems inevitable that I always end up helping to raise funds. But fundraising is hard work. I end up haing a website, a newsletter, a {Read More}

In just a few days, we will celebrate Thanksgiving with our loved ones. But once the food is put away and the table is cleared, that table then becomes command central as we begin our plan for shopping this Friday.

We are gamers in this family. We love playing video games. The more action, the better (that’s what she said, right?) My husband’s love affair with video games started sometime back in the 80’s with what I am positive was the Atari. Remember those? During every holiday season, I find myself with shopping lists of video games to get various family members and sometimes I need to play a little catchup to make certain that I find what everyone wants. {Read More}

I saw her post on Facebook about her luncheon that day. That night we {Read More}
