Putting the "Fun" in FUNdraiser

Walking with Angels has been persistently calling local businesses to find FUN fundraising opportunities. Our goal is to find ways for you to donate AND get something in return (other than the warm fuzzy feeling of giving of course). So, check out this line-up of events:


Award winning photographer Emily Andrews has generously donated her time and talents on Sunday, June 1st from 10am-2pm to have your family portrait taken. For a donation of at least $49, you receive a portrait session and 1-5x7 finished portrait. Location at Village Baptist Church in their beautiful park like setting, 330 SW Murray Blvd, Beaverton OR 97005. Limited sessions so call Emily Andrews Portrait Design at 503-646-6039 to schedule your appointment. 100% of your donation goes to the American Cancer Society. Check out this amazing picture of Ian that Emily took.

But wait, there are even more ways to donate!

  • CASH - We're always happy to take cold, hard cash. Go to my fundraising page to donate online.

I hope to see you at all of these events. I mean, you've got to eat, right? And that family portrait from 1992 could use an update. I haven't seen a perm like that in quite a while!

With your help, we'll be one step closer to a cure for cancer. Thank you!

Hey Lori, did you know that Senator Ted Kennedy has a malignant Glioma?

Emily May 20, 2008 at 6:42 PM  

Wow!!! That's awesome. You are definitely helping lots of people and I am so glad you are doing so much to help find a cure. I'm praying for the Lord to bless your efforts!

Also, this is totally off subject, but I was wondering about the google reader thing and how you can get emails when a blog updates. I signed up but for some reason I haven't been getting emails but when I check the blogs, there are updates. I am so electronically challenged. So is it working for you?
Someone just asked me today if she could get emails about my blog and so I just thought it would be nice to figure it out.

Thanks for any help!!

Hi Emily,

Google reader is sooooo handy! It doesn't e-mail you when there are updates though. You actually have to remember to open Google reader to see what has been updated.

Basically you just sign up for a free Google Reader account and then subscribe to any website. Google Reader then pulls new content so you can read it through Google Reader or click on it to open the website.

Phew, I think I've reached my quota of the words "Google Reader" for one day! Enjoy!!
