-Alexa did a market research study for $75
-Alexa babysitting for Kimberly, who pays really well! Thanks!
-Selling suckers at Tempe Paintball and at New Moon Premier, thanks to my wonderful bosses who let me get them at cost from them!
-more suckers to sell

-4 dates to do gift wrapping at Barnes and Noble for tips
-remember, Alexa is a fabulous babysitter!
-Amber and Joanna have offered their amazing talents to help, I just need to figure out how to utilize them (raffle?)
If I forgot anyone, I am so sorry. We have been so busy with all this! And a shoutout to Alexa, who is forgoing all Christmas and 16th birthday presents to allow us to put $ toward her trip. And, for getting the free phone that she will be using for the next 2 years, instead of a cool phone. Your "sacrifices" will for sure help!

Count me in too! If you do a raffle I'll donate some items from my shop!! Or if I can pitch in creatively some other way, please let me know. And, when you get them made, be sure to save a turquoise hair flower for me :)
