Guest Speaker

Posted by on Mar 16, 2011 in Fundraising Efforts, General | 0 comments

On Monday, March 21st I am a guest speaker at an AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center Mainland Auxiliary. This will be from what I understand volunteers and some doctors who will be gathering for a meeting and lunch to hear what I have to share. It is always an honor to be invited to speak and I so look forward to it. I plan on sharing some information of course about who I am, what I do, and where my foundation is going. Since I have been fundraising for about 30 years and this is the second foundation I am...

My First Grant

Posted by on Mar 11, 2011 in Fundraising Efforts, General | 0 comments

I received my first grant at my event this past February from York Children’s Foundation for the sum of $1000. What an honor to be gifted this for my foundation and the presentation was so very nice. My friends Vic and Dan presented me this award along with a gentleman named Marc from the foundation. When they handed me the check I felt like crying. For companies, foundations, and people in general to see and respect what I do makes me feel overwhelmed with joy. It began with the desire to write a book, share my...

Taking Things For Granted

Funny, you usually do not think of what you appreciate in life until something happens. What I mean is, when someone passes away you think about life, whether it be theirs or yours, when a baby is born, we think about having one or one you already have and the love you feel. At a wedding we think about getting married, at a family function you think that we do not do this often enough. I look at my husband every day, we spend a lot of time together and have been together in business and marriage for 30 years, but...

Helping Others

This note is just a short note to give myself and others a reality check. Do unto others is what I want to share. It does not mean you have to give give give money all the time, what it means is help, in any way you can. Gifting money is a wonderful thing, but not all of us have that luxury to do that. Give old clothes, books, toys, go to a fundraiser and work fora few hours, find out how you can do mailing, emailing, or help out in an office of a foundation or charitable organization. Too busy to do any of those...

Humble Me

Posted by on Mar 2, 2011 in Comic Book, General, Keeping it Together | 0 comments

I ran into a friend over the weekend whom I have not seen in quite a long time. After Evan and I caught up on the normal things I told him about my upcoming comic book and how excited I was doing this new project. Although he knew about it from reading my newsletter and my blogs, he shared my excitement and wished me best of luck in this new project. I then began to speak about how sometimes people ask me specific questions about the book and that I thought I should sit down and re-read my book just to keep it all...
