Celebration of Life begins Thursday!
Judy and I wanted to let you know that this Thursday marks the beginning of our Celebration of Life fund raising campaign. Our goal is $50,000 again this year. We are also excited to say that two donors have stepped forward with matching fund grants up to $15,000. That means for every dollar you give to SAM they will match it dollar for dollar up to $15,000. Our goal this year is to use the entire amount raised to pay down our mortgage. So please consider giving to SAM beginning with the Give to the Max Day on Thursday. Our fund raiser will run until December 31. So please consider giving whatever you can during the next seven weeks. You can give via our website at www.smileagainministries.com or by sending a check to SAM, PO Box 563, Crosslake, MN 56442. On our website just click the HELP A FAMILY tab and it will give you options to give to SAM. If you prefer, you can even call us and give via your phone with any credit card you might have.
One additional thought. We know that some of you are giving to the United Way Fund through your work. Did you know you can actually designate where your money goes? You can! And you can give your donation to SAM. Talk to your United Way rep and they can give you details. Also, some of you work for companies that have matching donation funds where they match dollar for dollar your donations to non-profits. Why not check and see if your job has such a fund and use that to triple your donation to SAM!
Thanks again for all of your support over the years. We’ll keep you posted with updates through-out the next seven weeks. We love you guys. God bless, Pat & Judy
