Today was Kid Vendor Day at the Farmers Market, and Peeper had a booth, selling watercolor postcards to raise money for the local animal shelter.
She wore out after a while, and I had to take over the customer relations, but for the first hour or so, she got strangers’ attention as they walked past her Kid Vendor table, asking, “Excuse me, would you like to buy a picture to help the animals?” and for a while there, she was doing the “barker” thing, shouting “Buy a picture! Help the animals!” She came up with that one on her own.
The card were 50 cents each, half of which went to the animals and half to Peeper.
People could also donate to “Vote For Your Favorite Pet” – Dogs vs Cats vs Other
After a some additional donations from family (AuntieKay, the Anonygrandparents, a little bit from us, and Peeper added what was in her “share” jar. Shrike’s parents bought some at the market) the total came to:
Postcard Sales: $24 ($12 for the animals and $12 for Peeper)
Favorite Pet Votes
Peeper’s allowance “share” jar: $1.25
And a smidge of round-up from Mama & Mommy: $1.07
TOTAL DONATION: $75.00
