Summer is the perfect season for yard sales, and you know it's a perfect time to clean out the garage, attic, closet or wherever it is that you stash your stuff.
Are your kids complaining that they're bored? Get them excited about raising funds for Casa de Fe, and then put them to work cleaning out the garage. See? WIN-WIN!
Why stop with just a yard sale? Let the kids sell lemonade and/or donuts to your customers as well.
And don't forget to post a sign that you're raising money for Casa de Fe. Many people are happy to give extra cash donations when they find out you are raising money for a non-profit. For more tips on making your yard sale a success, check out these tips from the Money Saving Mom.
Once your yard sale is over, don't forget to mail your tax-deductible donation to CornerStone International, P.O. Box 192, Wilmore, KY 40390. Be sure to write "Casa de Fe" in the memo of your check.
And if you're in Canada, you can write your cheque to our Canadian sending agency, ACCI at: Adventive Cross Cultural Initiatives 89 Auriga, Nepean, ON K2E 7Z2 Canada.
