Fundraising Fridays

TGIF!!!  So even though it isn't official yet I did notice that the money turned in on Boston Walk day has been entered and I wanted to update you about how much we have raised. . . . DRUM ROLL PLEASE. . .

We raised $13,334!  Can you believe it?  Over 13k!  AMAZING!  And I'm pretty sure there is still one or two more donations that has not been recorded so this number should go up but either way so exciting.  So I'd say The Bean Team did awesome with fundraising this year wouldn't you?

According to current info The Bean Team is the 3rd highest fundraising team for the 2011 Boston Walk.  That is 3rd out of every team registered for the Boston Walk.  WOW!

So some of you may remember that I challenged my team to raise $30,000 in 3 years and many did not think we could do it.  Well they were wrong.  Of course we did it! :)

2009   $6,275
2010   $10,920
2011   $13,334
Total  $30,529 {and still growing!}

Once I have the confirmed official total I will be sure to update.  I just couldn't wait any longer to share such GREAT news.

On a personal note, I raised $6,547 this year which is the most I have ever raised.  This is thanks to all of you who donated.  It is amazing how much money can be raised when so many people chip in!! :)  I took a sneak peak to see where I fall in terms or "ranking" and right now it looks like I'm the 4th highest individual fundraiser.  If you remember I got to wear the #11 bib this year b/c in 2010 I was the 11th highest fundraiser.  Looks like next year my bib will have a single digit.  Woo hoo!
