The Best Fundraiser Ever by Pat Simmons

When my children were small, I was known as the fundraiser queen at their schools. They would win prizes for the highest sales, because "Mama didn't play." 

Fast forward thirty years and I hope I still have that go-get-them energy. The Simmons St. Louis Team is sponsoring the first family reunion since the pandemic began. We postponed it last summer out of caution. Now, we want to welcome more kinfolks from all over the country to "Meet Us in St. Louis." I couldn't resist the old Judy Garland movie. :)

Anyway, as I searched for a fundraiser, I stumbled upon a virtual one. Everything is done online from the computer or phone app. Sounds doable.  I am so hoping this works. Instead of going door-to-door, or taking a form to work, which I'm a full-time writer at home now, I have to depend on social media and folks' love of popcorn. I may have to learn how to TikTok to the thrill of my daughter.

The campaign starts May 2nd and ends on May 6th---only four days to sell thousands of dollars in popcorn. Yikes, can we do it?

I hope you all are popcorn lovers! If so, check me out on May 2nd and stock up.
