Hi Deborah,
What a great idea. Unfortunately, I can't be part of a chat unless it's after work hours (pst).
So I'll give my two cents now: I would introduce myself, and then I'd quote the statistics of how many women and babies lose their lives (worldwide) to this disease. I'd say that it's the leading cause of maternal death (world wide). Then I'd ask if they'd consider a collection can.

The more the marrier(Spell?)[:o)] [B)]

Is there anybody that could post the discussion on form after Chat, so that all members can read/hear what was said? (is there a way to do that?)

If more people get involved with fundraising, then we just might see difference. No matter who you are, if you read the form, are a moderator, husband, expert, chapter president, or just want to get involved you can make a difference.

I put my son down for nap between 12:30 - 1pm but will be on asap.

Look forward to chating with you,
Deborah

Deborah, I will be around and would love to chat. I don't have many ideas or anything, but I'll be there with bells on. [8D]

We did it! Norlisa and I chatted for awhile about ideas with fundraising. Thank you Norlisa for talking with me. We thought about penny drives, making flyers on pdf format, and possibly make busniess cards. What is your idea?

There is a good book called Achieving Excellence In Fundraising by Henry A Rosso. For more ideas.

Lets chat again soon,
Deborah

AHHHHHH, I missed it!! I'm so sorry, I completely forgot about it until I saw this post. It was for a good cause though...my friend is pregnant with her third and has been really sick, so I took her kids today. When she gets feeling better she is going to write an article on pree for the local paper that she works for, so it REALLY was a good cause. [8D]

Also, my husband is in managment with a national pizza chain and does fundraisers for local schools, youth groups, etc. Once our chapter is up and running a bit better (and has more than one member [:D]), we are planning on doing a local PF fundraiser. It just occured to me that my husband's boss is over several western states and is based in Seattle, maybe I could work on something a bit bigger. I don't know if they do that sort of thing, but I'll talk to him and see.

Anyway, sorry I missed the chat, hopefully we'll do another soon.
