Hola, mi amigos!
The Good News: We just reached 33% of our goal! Thank you so much for every dollar you donated. I know that many of us are struggling financially right now, so it means a lot to see so many people giving... even if its just a few bucks! Our Marley fest fundraising went awesome (we raised $400!), and the plans for the classy fundraiser dinner are coming together nicely (Check http://www.facebook.com/NeedsForKnees for more info). The bake sale was postponed to June because I've been working a lot, but its still on!
The Not-So-Good News: In light of the fact that we have a month until my surgery date and we are not at least halfway to our goal, I had to have my surgery date rescheduled. It is now set for August 8th, with the pre-op on August 2nd. I am positive that we can reach our goal if we have a few extra months! I'm looking forward to enjoying most of the summer without crutches, but I'm not psyched about 2 more months of walking around on my damaged, painful knee.
How you can help: It seems like the fundraiser has lost a little steam in the past week, so please like the facebook and share the fundraiser if you haven't done so already. And if you can afford to donate again before the end of July it would be greatly appreciated. Also, I have nifty fliers printed out, so if you'd like to hang some up for me in your town just send me your address and I will mail them out to you!
