First Week of April Challenge

In December 2010, Circles participated in an Open Challenge like this. Personally, I contributed quite a lot. We got a good number of donors, but made it just 1/2 way to the $4,000 mark, so we didn't earn a permanent spot for fundraising.

I am thrilled to report that we have already reached nearly $800 in six days and most of that has NOT come from me this time! Way to go supporters! I've also had verbal confirmation of $500 more to come via check.

If we continue at this rate, we will earn that fundraising spot!

In the meantime, our Circles participants are really excited about their "Biggest Loser" challenge that just began on Wednesday. Some of the incentives are things like hockey jerseys or movie tickets. If anyone else has ideas or donations for weight loss incentives, please let me know!

Also last Wednesday, a wonderful holiday meal with ham, potatoes, green beans, sweet potatoes and desserts was provided by the Forest Hills Office of Premier Medical Associates. Thanks Forest Hills PMA for your generosity and participation in the transformation of lives!

On another note, Teresa got a job - a full time job with full benefits! She is so confident and feeling good about herself! It took a lot of motivation and persistence, but she completed her office systems education and was hired right away. She has demonstrated terrific reliability which is a great asset in the work environment. Way to go, Teresa!

I'll keep you updated!
