SPRING FAIR , OKTOBERFEST! I'm not sure which of these two grab me first.
I get an excited feeling that warm weather and flowers are in the air, then the knowledge that festivities and fun in MY local community are approaching.
TWO BIG banners welcome you as you enter Grays Point informing you that Gray's Point Public School is having their Spring Fair on October 22nd at 9am and its those first two words SPRING FAIR and OKTOBERFEST that grab me each time.
Maybe it's because THIS year GoodieDo is supporting Grade 6 students Ruby and Brooke from my local community of Grays Point. And that the whole concept of communities supporting communities is really close to home for this particular fundraiser.
Ruby came over tonight and helped me pump up some Jinta Sports Balls for the event. I sent her home with some flyers to cut and paste.
What excites me most is doing FUN things with communities and supporting each other. To see the enthusiasm of Ruby and Brooke wanting to help out, to learn new things and to teach me new things is super rewarding.
If you want to support local kids doing GOOD things then
1. Come along to the Spring Fair, Okoberfest on Saturday 22nd(30% of GoodieDo's sales on the day will be DONATED to grade 6 for their end of year gift to the school THANK YOU gift.)
2. Purchase something you NEED, or a gift for someone else, and help the girls fundraising efforts through your DO GOOD purchase, and FEEL GOOD about it as all products help to make the world a better place. If not on the day anytime before the end of the year purchase through Ruby and Brooke's fundraising page here.
3. Ruby and Brooke also have an offline Ball Sale going on until December. If you cant think of a birthday or Christmas pressie and you see them riding around the neighborhood hit 'em up to place your order for fair-trade balls. They just LOOOVEEE ball sports!
