"The Bliss is in The Details" may be the mantra for this blog. But, for me, personally, the Bliss is in The Blogging! I am less than a week into launching this blog, and I am already dazzled by your creativity, enthusiasm, dedication and your interest in sharing ideas. Your engagement in helping to create this community of fundraising event planners has been outstanding. Thank you!

Ask one question and raise an additional $1,000Plus, your contest submissions have been even more than I had hoped for (and I have high expectations)! Thank you to everyone who has provided fantastic details from their fundraising events.

And please…if you haven’t done so yet fill out our contest form. I am giving away six hot air balloon rides for two people. No doubt you have plenty of good ideas, How glow bracelets and a quarter can raise $1,000so the odds of you winning are excellent!

Even if you don’t win a balloon ride, everyone who reads this blog will benefit from the fundraising ideas shared through the contest.

BELOW, and to the LEFT, are teasers about the fundraising event details you will read about in future posts!

You will learn how to make an easy $1,000
by having your guests to bring one small item (that they already have at home)!

You will find out how thousands of dollars of donations could go uncollected, If you forget this live auction best The key to making donors feel like VIPspractice.

And, you will get the details on how to create a stunning, simple (and super-cheap) centerpiece that doubles as the party favor!

Well, from where I sit, we are well on our way to creating that "bank of fundraising ideas" that I referred to in my first post. And, It is all because of you.

I truly look forward to cataloging and communicating all your great ideas. Next Friday, I will announce the hot air balloon ride winners and their exceptional ideas. Now your challenge is to take these ideas and run with them (Oh yeah...and don't forget to report back to me with your results!).

And, remember, The Bliss Is in the Details!

Warm regards,
