This week Grace and I held another meeting for the fundraiser and we went over everything that has been done so far. A LOT has been done and Grace and I are so excited. We've gotten in touch with a lot more companies that are willing to lower their prices for us which is great. We are looking at booking a hypnotist and other interesting things that will keep the night alive. We also reached out to a friend of mine that has ice cream carts that they are willing to let us borrow for the night. We are also looking for a cotton candy machine because who doesn't love cotton candy I mean come on....So yeah we have a lot accomplished but there's always more we can do. We are also looking at websites that have small fun things for low prices like beaded necklaces, bracelets, etc. We are also trying to find decorations for the event so that it sets a fun mood. We have chosen our budget and goal which helps us out a ton and keeps us motivated. Now we are focusing on sponsors and donations much more because since this week is our last full week of school before spring break, we won't have much time. We still need to reach out to small places that are willing to donate food for breakfast the next morning like bagels, donuts, coffee, juice, etc. AHH I love 20 time!!!!

Let's just say that this week has been crazy. Grace and I had a meeting with our committee last week and decided we needed to have another one this week. The meeting was more centered around assigning jobs to our friends and designing flyers and checklists. It's actually pretty great to have a committee consisting of people from each grade because everyone seems to have connections with businesses! It makes this fundraiser even more exciting..(if that's possible). This week is crucial for us because we have a month and a half left before we need to have everything set in place. This morning we called many places that have blow up laser tag in hopes of getting everything for a very low price. It's been hard to get in touch with a lot of businesses during the week because their office hours are during our school hours However, we had 20 time today at 8am so we decided to call them this morning. We have gotten all of the building forms approved and the proposal typed, so basically now it's all about working to our full potential. When I say this fundraiser is getting stressful, I don't mean it in a bad way. It's actually so fun because I love the feeling of not knowing what will happen next or what to do next. It forces me to think more and use my imagination, which is something that I've always want to do. Grace and I couldn't thank our wonderful committee enough, they have been truly wonderful with helping. Soon our class will begin talking about the Ted X event for Grosse Pointe South. Grace and I are very interested in this opportunity and we can't wait to hear more about it. This project is truly the best thing I've done and Mr. Provenzano supports us with the decisions we make. We couldn't ask for a better mentor and I'm so happy to have been given the opportunity to try and accomplish something I'm passionate about every day.
