I LOVE What I DoI live to help others. During my life, I’ve been involved in many causes such as the AWE Recycling Project, The Columbia Gorge Project, Save The Whales, Credit Unions For Kids, My Father’s Closet, Party for the TaTa's, and multiple Dog Rescues and transports. My goal in life is to always be the voice for the voiceless and to do all that I can for the most vulnerable among us.
As the mother of a very active daughter who was involved in everything at school, I’ve done fundraisers with any item that you can imagine ~ from the common candy bar sales to flower fundraisers for Valentine’s Day, and anything else that you can imagine. I am well aware of the challenges that you can encounter with some products. I wish that we had our amazing program with first aid products, that EVERYONE needs and uses, back when I was approaching friends and family.
During ten years as Vice President of Operations of a credit union in Vancouver, WA, I began fundraising for Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland, OR. I’m proud to have played a part in the Credit Unions for Kids program. We raised $1.5 million dollars in just three years and went on to continue raising additional funds benefitting Doernbecher for many years to come.
In my thirteenth year of presenting the Right Response program to individuals like yourself, I can honestly say that I am more excited than I was the day that I began. I’m proud to help groups of all types raise funds for things that are near and dear to their hearts, with commonsense products that people need and use daily. I strive to save people time while exceeding the goals that they have set for their group. As your Fundraising Specialist, with years of experience under my belt, I can do that by providing all of the communication that you’ll need for your group/team to increase involvement. I provide, pre-sale letters, parent/group involvement letters, mid-sale communication, and thank you letters for your supporters. I can also provide lists of favorable venues if you decide to use any of our backpack programs for show-and-sell events. Our products are different than any other fundraiser, so I can direct you to types of businesses in your area that have habitually supported our program. My job is to minimize your frustration and maximize your efforts. I look forward to helping you.
