Terry Fox and small goals

We don't usually participate in school fundraising. It's not that we don't care or want to help out... it's because we don't have many relatives or people to approach and there is no way in heck we're going door to door to bug the neighbours. 

This year our kidlet was excited about doing the Terry Fox run and even did a bit of 'training'. Terry Fox is an amazing Canadian icon and inspiration so how could we possibly say 'no'? He set a reasonable goal of raising $50.

I posted a quick note on-line and our Pixie-kid raised $110. He was so excited that he actually had a hard time sleeping that night :)

The next day he told me that he had told his teachers about his bit-o-fundraising and they congratulated him on almost reaching the half way mark for the entire school. I was sure that they must have meant the class goal. 

Tonight we went to the school to meet his teacher and see his new classroom and I saw this in the school hallway...

Just a tiny goal of $250 for the whole school! I am SURE that surpassing that number is absolutely doable. That lovely little school has a boatload of heart and the kids are just the greatest. Their run is tomorrow so if you'd like to contribute there's still a slice of time to support them, and a great cause.

P.S. I pinky swear that I will do a big fat giveaway this weekend to even out the generosity karma.
