Last Call for the Birthday Bus!!!!!

Well, the ’10 bus tour is almost over. We’ll be pulling the dusty traveler back into its garage on Thursday after a good trip around the country and even around the world.

Mom upgraded her seat on the bus to first class with this note.

I just this week finished a coverlet, and two little hats(one for preemie that wouldn’t even fit your cats!) for the NICU at Baptist Hospital–church project that I’ve gotten involved with, and enjoy. I have so much scrap yarn that I’m doing little hats–all babies now wear hats when they leave the hospital–I’m sorry I so neglected you in that!! Also doing little sweaters for Guideposts to send to needy children anywhere. Love to knit so this is not even a chore!

Keeping it in the family, Lucy G. my sister-in-law gets seats for her and her family with the idea of Scrip for supporting your favorite school. From their website:

Scrip is fundraising while you shop®. Our program allows your non-profit organization members to purchase scrip for everyday expenses like food, clothing, and entertainment while earning a percentage of each dollar of scrip purchased back in revenue. Scrip is “no-selling” fundraising.

Profit from the Scrip program is split 50/50 between the Scrip Fund and you, the purchaser. The 50% that stays in the Scrip Fund is used for unbudgeted needs within the school. Your 50% can be distributed to one of three funds within the school you support: 1.) Apply toward Tuition for your family 2.) Apply to School Student Assistance Fund for families needing assistance with tuition 3.) General School Operating Fund. If you’d like to get involved, let me know and I’ll connect you with Lucy for more info.

Closer to home our last house party raised $240 for MCC Earthquake Relief. So it’s been a good run this year! Thanks for all the donations to the birthday cause and all the other good work you all are doing out there. See you next year!
