Day 97: Asking for a donation!

September 26, 2014 , , , , , , , ,

DAY 97

It’s day 97 of the 100 day challenge.
(see the original challenge link here:

Today, I asked the manager of Wahoos Fish Taco chain for the name of the person to contact and I emailed that person and asked her for a $400 donation for my daughters softball team. Normally, I would refrain from asking for money because they might say NO. I guess I tell myself, it’s needy and they already give to so many other causes…why would they want to give to mine?

I didn’t just get an email back from her, I received a phone call from one of the founders of Wahoos.

He said, “No, we don’t donate for banners, however, we would love to be involved with your team in some other way…fundraiser night, etc. Just let me know.” He then gave me his direct phone number. All I had to do was ASK.

I am grinning!
