a little shameless self-promotion...

Here in Texas, funding for education has been a hot topic.  Schools are struggling to keep up, often cutting programs to save money.  Thankfully, our district values fine arts education, and so far we have managed to keep our programs (woohoo!).  BUT....extra-curricular programs are not included in the budget.  If I am going to have a choir this year, we're going to have to step into the wild world of fundraising.  <ugh.> 

No one needs any more cookie dough, wrapping paper, or candles, so what to do?  I'm so glad you asked!  I found a program that offers 60% profit (you heard right!) to participating groups.  It's called SAVING DINNER.  It's an online fundraiser offering healthy menus, recipes, shopping lists, and more...delivered electronically after purchase.  That's right!  NO deliveries, NO collecting money, NO door to door sales necessary!  AWESOMENESS!  And it encourages families to eat healthy dinners at home, which in the long run saves them money

So here's where I need a little help. :)  Please click on the link below and check out the program.  If you want to order something and support my 3rd/4th grade choir, I will be forever in your debt.  If you just want to see it to consider using it yourself, that's fine too.  Just let me know if the site makes sense and is easy for you to understand and use.  Please come back and comment!  LMK if there is anything I should include in our flyer to send out to parents to make it easy for them, too.  Thanks so much!

School starts in T-minus 12 days.....!!!!
