Tonight's the night of our annual Glencoe Elementary School Foundation Auction. It's our biggest fundraiser, an event that should raise most of the money we need in order to fund things like our school librarian, technology support, afterschool sports, and other essential things that have been, over time, snipped out of our school budget.
A few months ago, I was contacted on etsy by a woman who was asking for donations to her local school auction, something that I readily consented to. Her query gave me the impetus to do something very similar for our own auction. After all, I had been more than happy to help out her fundraiser by sending her a few items from my inventory.
I was amazed at the response I got. Not only were some people willing to share their creative genius with us, to benefit our school, some people were downright excited to do so! (I had mentioned that I would do my best to get them visibility for their work and to encourage people to visit their sites)
There are some big-hearted crafters out there!
Here is a list of the people who ended up contributing to our foundation:
