I've been trying to brainstorm ideas for raising money for us to do IVF. I've received a lot of advice and support on different things to try. The big one everyone recommends is garage sales. I'm going to try and join up with as many as I can. We don't have a garage nor a yard really to host my own. If anyone out there does one or plans on it this year and wouldn't mind me setting up my own stuff and helping you work it, I'd love to! Also, if anyone out there has stuff they know they want to get rid of but don't like to or don't have time for marking and selling, I would love for you to consider donating the items to my "cause". I will happily price, transport and sell it for you! I'll do whatever you'd like me to do with the proceeds I make from selling your things.
I'm also thinking of making/sewing items to sell either in an Etsy store or possibly at these garage sales. My sister in law Brianna can knit and will learn to sew things with me and my other sister in law Kristie has offered to help teach me how to sew! Considering I've never touched a sewing machine (maybe in middle school???) I will need all the help I can get!!!
Feel free to contact me if you're interested in helping in any way. Or if you have ideas for me! I'm not good at this whole brainstorming/raising money thing. I'll take all the help and advice I can get!
