Getting Basket Happy for Charity

My nephew was in a terrible accident approximately a month ago.  He’s been unable to walk since that time. Having no medical insurance has been extremely tough on my sister and the entire family.  You can read more about him and the accident here. Please feel free to even donate if you’d like.

We’re having a Corn Hole Tournament this Saturday as a way of raising money to help him out and I’m super excited about my new Corn Hole boards.

Isn’t it awesome!

Not only is there a Corn Hole Tournament but there is also a Silent Auction.  Here’s a few of the baskets I made up to be auctioned off.

Georgia Bulldog Basket. Includes a cooler, coozies, backpack, notepad, pen, magnets, car tag, football, long sleeve t-shirt, hacky sack ball and a georgia fly swatter (yes I had to throw that in. Whatever).

These baskets are not the only things that will be up for Auction on Saturday.  We will have Harley Davidson earrings, 2 pair of Real Tree camo sunglasses for men, a man’s leather jacket, a woman’s leather jacket and plenty of other things to bid on.

So that’s what I’ve been doing this week.

Let me know how your week is going?

  1. My week is (thank God) starting off quietly. But my weekend … well, the rescue organization I volunteer with, Fighting for Dawn, rescued a pregnant dog on Friday, fifteen minutes before she was scheduled to be euthanized. Her water broke at 630 Saturday morning, but no babies came. She finally had her first puppy at 1230 Sunday afternoon. The second puppy was stuck in the birth canal. Marilyn (Monroe), the mama, was taken to the emergency vet, and after x-rays, it was determined that she was fine, and they sent her home to continue laboring. By 630, when no other babies had come, and she had stopped laboring, we rushed her back to the emergency vet where, after an emergency c-section, 12 puppies were born (we were expecting eight!)! Number 2, who turned out to be number 12, was critical at birth, but she is doing great now. Our vet bill was 1600 dollars. An anonymous supporter of Fighting for Dawn paid the entire bill. Kinda restores your faith in mankind.

    • Wow girl. Your weekend was busy. I have learned through doing these fundraisers that there are still good people in the world. We’ve had a few step up and donate a good bit. Love my friends and thank everyone for everything they have done!
