Friends and I organize a New Year's Benefit dance. All the money goes to local families that have had a tragedy or crisis. Well wouldn't you know it that two days before the event we get two more nominations! What to do???? Well texts and emails were flying back and forth between all of us on what to do. You see last year we did develop some guidelines for our nominations. One of them being that we would take nominations from December 1st to December 1st each year. This way it would give us the opportunity to get the stories of the families in the paper, as well in our letter to request donations we also include a brief write up about each family. So what to do, what to do??? The committee was split, this is why it is always important to have an odd number of committee members. People had high emotions, we want to help but we are all stressed with the event already, plus we do have rules that we made.
Well it was voted upon and it was decided that we would stick to the rules and we have two nominations for next year. My miracle is that with everyone being so passionate about their vote we all respected each other and there were no arguments or hard feelings about the situation.
I really value each of the ladies that joins me in this adventure we partake on each year. Everyone is super passionate about the cause and wants to help out. What a miracle they each are and their willingness to help year after year.
