fundraising for baby g

alipyper - baby g is going to chinaWe found out a few weeks ago that our daughter {G} was accepted into the JSA Summer Study Abroad Diplomat Program in Beijing, China this summer. We’re over the moon excited for her! And we’re scrambling a little bit, trying to figure out how we’re going to pay for it.

The whole family is getting in on the fundraising action. {G} set up a fundraising webpage. {I} is organizing a garage sale. {K} is selling my frozen cookie dough. The Mr. is working his guts out at work – like he always does. And I am going a little bit crazy.

I have several classes at Harmony that I’m trying to fill. Are you local? Do you have friends or family that are local? If so, you might consider coming to one of my classes! The classes are very reasonably priced and I’m an excellent teacher 🙂 Will you help me get the word out by sharing on Facebook and Instagram?
