Default So Excited! I Had To Share...

This fall all my daycare kids are headed off to school
I have 8 new children starting in September, ages range from newborn to 2.5. I donated all my baby stuff a few years back so I have nothing. I know, I don't know what I was thinking. Anyway, I was also looking into purchasing a quad stroller.
All these big purchases were going to cost over $1000, maybe more. Here comes the good part..I thought to myself " What can I do to raise $1000. So I decide to have a HUGE garage sale, I posted at my church and on my facebook page explaining my goal and asking for donations. People droppped off stuff day after day, week after week. My husband picked items up from family. Daycare parents came over to help and to just hang out. You will NEVER guess how much money I raised. Guess, just guess!
$3265
I cannot believe how generous everyone was. After I buy my items I plan on having a party to thank all that helped(catered of course) I'm donating the rest to our church (although I'd like to go on a vacation
So just an idea if you'd like to raise money for your daycare. Of course it does'nt have to be as big as mine was but every donation helps. All my daycare parents were thrilled to donate all their baby and kids stuf! Thanks for letting me share.

Congrats!! That was one awesome garage sale!!!! We are planning to do a garage sale fundraiser for our soccer team - all the families from the team are going to bring stuff and we hope to raise a good amount too!! I'd fall over if we earned over $3,000.
