Sound the trumpets! Kill the fattened mongoose!
The charity month was a huge success!
For those of you who haven’t been keeping up with the blog, I will be donating all of the profits I earned during the month of August to CURE Childhood Cancer and Canines for Disabled Kids. I wasn’t sure how much I’d earn, but thanks to the generousity of our readers, Curt Fulster and I raised a bundle!
The biggest event of the month was the Western Welcome Week festival in downtown Littleton. We manned a booth all day, gained some new readers, and raised quite a bit for the charities. We even got a couple of generous cash donations from some older gents.
Special thanks to my mom and dad and Matt, Sarah, and Alethea Bubke for helping out (Matt’s improvised song and dance made a lot of festival-goers curious about our booth)!
I’m honored that I was able to help raise money to fight childhood cancer and help disabled kids. The charity month was a fantastic experience and something I may revisit in the future…
I have yet another piece of poodle-roastingtly exciting news: I’m going to have a booth at the Western Welcome Week festival in downtown Littleton on August 19!
The Western Welcome Week festival has taken place once a year for almost a hundred years. It’s a huge community celebration in downtown Littleton, Colorado. Events take place from 8am to 5pm on most days from Friday, August 11 through Sunday, August 20.
The real action takes place on Saturday, the 19th. There’s a huge parade, a bunch of vendors selling books, food, entertainment, and other goodies, an obstacle course, gryphon rides, orca-eating contests, and giant robot battles. Or at least, some of those things.
I’ll be sharing a booth with Curt Fulster of C. Fulsty Books, who’s also donating his August profits to charity.
As I mentioned in my last post, I’ll be donating all of the money I make in August to CURE Childhood Cancer and Canines for Disabled Kids. This includes all of my Western Welcome Week sales, so be sure to stop by and support a good cause.
Stay tuned for details on my booth location!
