Bake Sale Report

Well, Kaetlyn's bake sale happened yesterday and it went pretty well. Her friends and mine made lots of goodies to sell and they sold most of them and got lots of donations. They made about $200 in 4 hours. Rhiannon really wanted to help out her sister. So she brought along her violin and opened her case and did some busking. In less than 2 hours she made $150 for Kaetlyn. She was so proud of herself that she was able to do that for her sister. She did have a bit of a problem, looking rather warily at strange donaters (they weren't really strange - just strange to her...).... kind of glaring.... So we appointed Megan as her manager who stood near and said thank you and explained that she was raising money for her big sister's insulin pump and Rhiannon just had to play violin which she did very well.... Its kind of funny, I can't get her to play that much in her practises....

We did all this in front of Safeway. The staff at Safeway were truly wonderful - did everything they could to help and came and bought some baking and put money in Rhiannon's violin case. I'm thinking another day of busking with some friends in conjunction with selling some children's art might be a great way to raise some more money for Kaetlyn.....

SO THAT BRINGS OUR TOTAL TO......$1,910.00!!!!! THANK YOU EVERYONE! $4,090.00 to go. We're 1/3 of the way there!

And I will repeat the information for ordering this card....

And to start off the fund raising, our good friend, Bozenka has donated all profits from this art card to Kaetlyn's fund. This card is made from a painting that Bozenka painted for Kaetlyn 4 years ago. She sells it with her other art cards ( This one is the diabetes fairy.

There is an option when you are ordering to include shipping or not. If you live in Vernon, don't include shipping. The cards are printed here in Vernon and I can ship them to you within 3 days of ordering.

The card is available in the following sizes:

Small - 4 3/8" x 2 3/4" $2.50

Medium - 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" $4.5o

Large - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" $6.00

Extra Large (poster) - 8.5" x 11" $19.95

And this is the inscription on the back of the card. Her name is Kaetlyn because she is the portrait of Kaetlyn, a magical child with diabetes. She is sweetness and inspiration even at times when it is not easy for her. Each rose extends one of Kaetlyn's personal victories to you. Remember Kaetlyn is a magical fairy. She gives hope for tomorrow, courage and wonder for today because like every child with diabetes, she can.
