Drum Roll Please!!!!!!!!!

Today I would like to thank everyone that had anything to do with the crop day. My helpers, the croppers, the coffee guys. You all made it an amazing day.

So here it is, we have raised money with 2 fundraiser event this year, Coffee For A Cause and A Helping Hand Autism Crop Day, together these two events have raised $5175 for the Autism Assoc Early Intervention Centre.

We are just amazed again at the generosity of all the people we have come in contact with while doing these events. You can see the donor list to the left, these people from near and far have sent packages from all over Australia, they have gone out of their way to help and for that I am truly thankful. Closer to home we have Fiori Coffee and 5 Senses that have been behind us 100% , Fiori setting us up for success with the [Coffee for a Cause ] coffee drive and 5 Senses delivering a coffee machine, setting up and supplying coffee for the crop day and yet more beautiful coffee arrived from Fiori. We are very lucky to be surrounded by such wonderful people.

For more reports on the day have a look at the following blogs and read some of the comments -

oh my goodness look at these!!

Lis and I did up the raffles and sorted things for the crop shop yesterday. Thank you so much Lis for helping me! I couldn't have done it without you..

Raffles are valued from $180 up to $250 and in my opinion the crop day album will be priceless!

For those of you that can't make it to the crop day and would still like to help out you can donate through paypal, click on the button to donate.

Our target is $8,244.60 to make it possible for the centre to get everything on thier wish list. With coffee sales, crop day tickets and raffles we should be able to raise $6,500, we don't need that much more and that would get the centre everything they need to help these children at such a crucial stage in their development. Early intervention isn't just for the children, it gives us as parents the tools to help our kids all through their lives, we are their advocates, teachers and protectors and the centre gives us these skills as well as help our children to be able to get by in our world.

We don't do this alone

I'm going to do this a few more times before the crop because we do get so much wonderful help from our friends, people in the coffee and scrapbooking industry and the community.

To the left is a donor list, these are people that have already donated something to us for the crop day. Thank you so much, you are what make us able to have such a successful fundraiser. This year we are running a coffee drive and the scrapbooking crop day and because of that we have some great coffee items to raffle on the day like a Presso machine, this is so cool, we have one here at home and not only does it look good it is amazingly portable. Also the members at coffee that donated the coffee to us to roast and Fiori coffee for being our roaster, every little bit makes a difference.
