Yes, I am still alive but I have not been posting a lot lately because my life in centered around putting together my annual charity auction that I do each year. This event is the highlight in my year every year that we have lived here.
This year I am helping the local orphanage organize this years auction. We also were able to gain the support of the local city Vice President in organizing this event which means it can opened up to the general public and I able to try to get donations from local businesses. It is amazing what doors can open you have the right support.
So, who’s ready for an auction? What is my zloty goal for this years auction? 6,000 zloty!!! Either dream big or go home is my philosophy in fundraising. My background before moving here to Poland is fundraising and my Master’s college degree is Non-Profit leadership so these type of things are right up my alley to do. Now if could find a paying job to do this while I am over here that would be AWESOME like I had in the US when I worked for the YMCA.
I have 2 more days of asking for donations, so hopefully I have so more success for wonderful donations.
