Every spring it begins: the letters, the phone calls, the emails... It’s donation season! If you work in my industry, you are going to get hit up by every school auction in town, and let me tell you, that’s a lot of schools! I have to tell you honestly, I know that these are often the single biggest source of revenue for the schools, but they are really a challenge. Fundraising in general is a tough nut.
Easter was always one of my favorite holidays. Not because of the fancy dresses or hats (gah, I hated those! One year I was even forced to wear gloves!), not because of the family gathering together for ham and potato brunch after services, not for the cute bunnies and chickies (although my mother will tell you all about the year she got live dyed Easter chicks in her basket), not even for the week we got off from school. No, Easter was always special because of one thing, and one thing only: the Easter egg hunt!
MacGyver just keeps popping up! He’s becoming quite a dear friend.
I did a party the other day where the client wanted the entryway marked with balloons, so people would know where to enter. The problem? There was nothing to tether the balloons to!
Balloon weights you might say, use balloon weights!
