Theresa's Mixed Nuts: We're #1!

We're #1!

Some of you have been asking about how Mariah has been doing on her school fundraising, and I finally have an update for you. This has been one of the most stressful things we have ever been a part of. If you remember, the top 4 fundraising earners get to place a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier on Easter Sunday. Just trying to find out where we stand against all the students has really been a roller coaster just trying to get answers. We knew she raised $1000 dollars, but we weren't sure if anyone else was close or passed that amount.

Thursday we had a trip meeting at the school. There we were told that..... Mariah is #1 in earnings! Woo Hoo!




We have put in so much time and effort, I am so happy that she will see that if you put forth the work, it really does pay off. We also got word that if all goes well, she will have the opportunity to meet Michelle Obama that week, and maybe even President Obama! Regardless of anyone's political beliefs, I think that will be an amazing opportunity. The icing on the cake is that 2 of her best friends are in the #2 and #3 spots for earnings. Not only will she have this awesome experience, she will be doing it with her best friends!

There is still a candy cane sale amongst the students at her school, but I can't see anyone surpassing her lead by selling candy canes to the students. Just in case, please keep your fingers crossed she can maintain her lead :)

  9. Way to go Mariah!! I always hated fundraising when I girls were younger. Luckily, once they hit high school, unless they are in band, cheer, etc., the fundraisers stop.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!
