Eloise & I arrived in the parking lot
of Krispy Kreme early this morning.
We were picking up over 300
freshly glazed morsels of deliciousness.
Because our tiny little school of 5
(1 student + 4 teachers)
could not afford a much needed new violin
for it's music department.
After a school meeting, in the kitchen,
Eloise decided that she would
earn the money.
On Tuesday Eloise got dressed
in her "outing" uniform
and we drove all over town
She sold 26 Dozen;
mostly to local businesses.
We then contacted Krispy Kreme
to arrange our early morning pick-up.
Eloise delivered all of them before
surprisingly they were all still warm.
And all of her customers were happy.
As a mommy I was proud of her hard work.
Even though she only raised half of the $250
she needed, the Gran & Grandpa Corp.
stepped up and offered her a matching funds grant.
They were impressed with her enthusiasm
and the fact that an eleven year old
sold enough orders in one afternoon to net $125.
(I did not do any of the selling)
All I can say is ....
look out youth department!
In just a few months your
newest member will be
running circles around you
in the fundraising arena.
P.S. I will post pics next week
when her new violin arrives from California.
My mouth is watering just thinking about
the wonderful aroma that was in my car.
We didn't even get to keep any,
because a person at one of the drop off sites
didn't get a chance to order
and was very envious of her co-workers,
so we graciously sold her our dozen.
Oh well. I guess the Lord knew we needed the dough, but not all that sugar!
