Helping Hands Spring Plant & Bake Sale-Don Of All Trades

April 4, 2016

I spent this past Saturday together with my good friends Carm and Angela coming up with some fantastic ideas for our Helping Hands Spring Plant and Bake Sale Table at the Hope 4 Her Handmade and Local Gift Show. We were sure guests were going to LOVE what we were offering to sell. The best part of all..100% of all money raised from purchased plants and baked goods our tables were to be donated to Herizon House and  everyone one who bought our items would automatically donate a Helping Hand to help complete our second Tree of Hope! We were all excited and looking forward to this event!

Getting The Word Out

Hope 4 Her Flyers

So what was I doing on  a  sunny but a little chilly Sunday on March 25th?   I was out and about putting up these Hope 4 Her Event flyers benefiting Herizon House around Durham. I was also out looking for any  local businesses with  storefronts that would  like to help  by placing one of these Hope 4 Her flyers on their shop window. I wanted to help spread the word and make this event even more successful this year.

Getting Our Tables Set Up

April 30, 2016

We arrived the Christian Life Centre in Ajax at 930am to set up our Helping Hands Spring Plant and Bake Sale tables. Doors opened at 10am. I cannot believe we used a total of Three Tables to showcase all of our products to help raise funds to benefit the women and children at Herizon House. It was truly an incredible and humbling experience to meet so many beautiful people in the community who showed their support. Thank you to everyone who helped out by purchasing items from our tables, helping Herizon House and donating a Helping Hand to Build Trees of Hope! We look forward to doing it again next year.
