Coleman Family Project

August 27th, 2010 1 comment

Please remember the meeting on Sunday, Sept 29.   Bring people who are willing to give their time and resources to the fundraiser event. any amount of time they can offer is appreciated. we know that we are all busy. It will take many people giving what they can to make this happen.

I have attached a letter you may use to request donations from businesses and individuals. I have also attached a receipt form they may use. Please read these documents carefully so that you can present your request properly and that the money gets donated to the right place.

To all of you, make copies of these attached documents to take with you wherever you go from now on so that you will have them handy to give to business owners and individuals you come in contact with. Feel free to email them as well.

If you do get donations, please email me and let me know exactly who is donating and what they are donating. The auction committee will be in charge of picking up donated items and storing them until the event. We will announce that committee to you when it is formed.

We have decided on Saturday, October 9 from 2:00 – 7:00 for the carnival, and possibly a stomp from 7:00 – 9:00 following the carnival. The location is still being negotiated, but we will have an answer on that in a few days. Keep checking the Coleman blog for updates.

As we embark on this project, please remember that we are working with meager financial reserves, and that every penny we spend for the fundraiser is a penny the Colemans will not receive. Yes, they will hopefully benefit from our expenditures, but please be very careful in your expenses. I am asking that anyone who needs to spend money on this event contact me first for permission to do so, so that we can have a current unerstanding of what we are spending. If you spend money without asking, please consider it your donation to the cause. I am generally reachable by email through this website.  Please check out the pricing and quantities on items you are proposing before contacting me for a go-ahead.

Unfortunately, we have no idea how many people we will be attracting to this event. As we go along, we will get a better feel for that.

ALWAYS ASK businesses to donate goods and services before you purchase them. If they will not donate, then ask them what kind of discount they are able to give us for this cause.

I have some DVDs you can take to present our cause to those you approach if necessary, or you can direct them to the coleman2family.blogspot.com website and to KSL.com for more information and to view the news story and the video.

We are looking for the following things to be donated:

Cash Donations
Food for the concessions at the carnival (hot dogs, buns, relish, catsup and mustard, soda pop, bottled water, ice, chips, etc.)
Donated goods and services for the auction such as:
Gift cards for haircuts, professional services, restaurants, retail stores, movie tickets, recreational sites (Lagoon, Raging Waters, etc.)
Printing Services for Publicity, poster paper, printing paper, banners
Balloons, for decoration at the carnival
Radio ads
TV Time (Good Things Utah, Studio 5, KBYU, KUED, etc.)
Tickets for use at the carnival
Bounce house
Entertainers (bands, magicians, mimes, cartoonists, photographers, photo booths, face painters) at the carnival (we want live music throughout the event)
Sound Equipment, extension cords
Graphic Designers for posters, banners, flyers
Vinyl stickers for car windshields
Bracelets
T Shirts with the “Spread Magic Around… Join the Coleman Family Miracle Team” message on them for advertising purposes and also for sale at the carnival.
Snow cone machines
Popcorn machines
Soft Ice cream machines
Hot Dog Warmers
Paper plates, cups, napkins
Garbage cans and liners
Tables and chairs (40 tables round or rectangle, 250 chairs)
Tents in case of rain (small ones like used at sporting events, and large ones for large numbers of people)
New Retail items for the auction (bikes, skis, crafts, quilts, paintings, athletic equipment, musical instruments, craft supplies, etc.)
Just thought I might throw in a new minivan? 2009 or newer. No harm in asking, right?
Help in selling Coleman home so they can move to a larger home to accommodate their children’s needs.

I am sure there is more, but this is a start. we will improve on the list for our Sunday meeting.

Brotherhood

Love the brotherhood.
– 1 Peter 2:17

I know of no better place to find fellowship and good friends than among the quorums of the Church. Where on earth should there be a better association than in a quorum, each of whose members is ordained to act in the name of the lord, dedicated to help one another, and whose officers are set apart to this purpose under divine authority? Brethren, the quorums of the church need your talents, your loyalty, your devotion; and each man needs the fellowship and blessings that come of quorum activity in the kingdom of God.

– President Gordon B. Hinckley
Stand a Little Taller pg 139
