Hi Guys! I haven't met a lot of you yet, but look forward to meeting more people at the Scott Pilgrim night this Saturday. So far, this group is amazing! The reason for this email is that I'm trying to do a bakesale through No Kid Hungry (guess what funds go to) and was wondering if we could make this a group event! For more info visit No Kid Hungry's page No Kid Hungry.org. I don't have many friends or connections in the Phoenix area to ask and have not had luck with the grocery stores I've called for a venue (Safeway and Frys). I have already raised $100 in donations for ingredients, and have gotten my grandparents' Dairy Queen stores to agree to match a donation up to $200 after the sale. My current team name is "With Love", but am totally down to change it to something like Phoenix N.E.R.D.S. Feed the Kids or something along those lines.
I know it's kind of not a "geek" topic, but was wondering if anyone would be interested in using this as a way to meet and help fellow nerds?
Please let me know if anyone would like to learn more about how to help with any of the following:
-bakesale venue/event (can be held multiple times in same campaign)
-baking a treat to sell for donations
-assisting with set-up/sales/and take-down of pop-up bakesale
-Getting companies to match donations
This could be a ton of fun guys!
There's a brand new DDR mix that has been released and I'd like to make a big day of checking out the machine before it's ruined by general wear and tear! Since it's kind of a drive, I'd like to see a bunch of people check it out at once so that nobody is driving that far for nothing.
Let me know if you're interested!!
