make a wish

so this was a really cool thing. the vase was auctioned off in a regular bidding style auction and it went for $250 and the plates are being auctioned off today at the golf tournament. Out of all the smaller items the vase went for the most money, the cool part was that they actually gave the vase back to the family and the person who won it got a plate instead. i found out last night that the whole auction was kicked off by my idea to donate the pottery and in 1 month they were able to get enough stuff to auction off and they ended up making $10,000 on just the auction last night. It was so awesome!! I know God brought them into my store so that more money could be raised and so that they could add another avenue for people to give. I am looking forward to more opporunities with the Make A Wish Foundation, i am going to try to put something together so that maybe when ever they grant a wish we do something for the family or child to commemorate it. Maybe just picture frames or plates..i dont have all the details worked out but i am very excited.

I'm so proud of you and the difference you make in people's lives! Just think how many people you'll affect with your suggestion of a donation and how it'll snowball from there!
