Aurora, Colorado Fundraiser 2012

Posted by on Jul 25, 2012 in Fundraisers | 0 comments

On July 20th, one of the most horrendous crimes was committed in Aurora, Colorado. 12 people were shot and killed by a gunman who opened fire 30 minutes after The Dark Knight ‘s opening night took place. Dozens more were injured in this senseless and cruel act. Many of the victims lack health care coverage, and many of the families are too poor to cover any financial cost that resulted from this tragedy. I want to help, and I want to get all of you involved! I decided to create a line of Chocolate Oreo Cookies in a fundraiser to support these families. I found a great donation site who will contribute 100% of the proceeds directly to the families. If you prefer to donate directly to them, go ahead and visit their site! (COVA wants to remind everyone that if you wish to donate to the Aurora Tragedy you can mail a check to COVA at: 90 Galapago St Denver CO 80223 with “Aurora Tragedy” in the memo line) If you prefer to get delicious Oreo cookies while donating, then go ahead and contact me to place an order! I will send you an invoice to pay securely via an internet site.Normally I’d use PayPal, but I don’t want the 3% fee to interfere with the amount of money raised! As usual, I will donate 2/3 of the proceeds to the cause! I do not pocket the 1/3- I am using that money to cover shipping and delivery only! All other material cost is coming out of pocket! One last note: Since I will be baking for so many people, I will contact you as soon as your order is ready! Be at ease, your money is still going straight to the donation center!! Thanks for your support! To order, please state how many dozen cookies you would like in the Contact form. In the subject field state “Aurora Fundraiser” Prices: 1/2 Dozen: $20 Full Dozen:...
