So what's next... there is a lot more in the works. To start, there is a Thirty One sale going on right now if you are interested in buying some adorable bags. Ann Bates, one of the waiting moms, has a friend who is a representative for the company. Heather has offered to have an online sale from now until December 8th with a portion of the proceeds going to Altynai's fund! Here is the link to the sale : http://www.mythirtyone.com/70174 .
Ann also has a Zazzle store that has Kyrgyz 65 t-shirts and other items for sale. They are adorable and the proceeds of all of the Zazzle store sales will also go to Altynai's Fund. Here is the link to the store front : http://www.zazzle.com/bringhomethekyrgyz65 .
Last thing, any crafters or Etsy store owners out there.... I am dreaming of a Holiday craft fair for December's main fundraiser and it is shaping up nicely. So far people have donated a great variety of items, from a wooden toy box to hand crafted shoes to quilts to personalized Dr. Seuss wall hangings, just to name a few. I would love to have a few more handcrafted pieces if possible so let me know on the blog or via private email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in donating. It should be fun!
