And the Winner Is...

Ladies and gentleman, the results are in. The poll is closed and votes have been cast for which charity I should raise money for. 

And the winner is...

(drumroll, please)

Catholic Charities!!!

Thank you all so much for casting your votes and helping me to make this decision. Granted I only got 21 votes overall, but it was hard enough to get that so I guess I'll just go with it. Don't worry, other charities, I won't forget about you and will raise money for one of you next time. 

Now the tough part begins - the actual raising of money. As I mentioned in my previous post, I really don't know about fundraising and ensuring that the money I collect is safe and secure. While I'll be researching this in the coming weeks, I also have a lot of other stuff to focus on as well - family events, youth group, moving, career planning/research - and that's just the beginning. If anyone has more information on fundraising and can save me a bit of research time, I would really appreciate it. I might even bake you cookies for your trouble! :)

Also, start brainstorming challenging/fun/goofy things I could do to raise money! The best ideas will be featured in a future poll for votes!

  1. There are a number of bars who will host charity events; some that give you a percent of profits, others that allow you to use their bars as a setting for other fundraising activities. I've had good luck with posting a donation portal link on Facebook or using eVite to host a party with the note of "in lieu of hostess gift, please consider donating to..."
