Great Opportunity to Pay it Forward

I know that many of you are cashing in on lots of great FREEBIES and scoring some items for just pennies. The thing I love about coupons is the opportunity I have to pay it forward and give to others from the growing stock of items I gather for FREE! I was contacted this afternoon by my Facebook Friend and fellow Classy Coupon Clipper Brooke. Her aunt has been diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer and is currently undergoing chemotherapy treatments. As you can imagine she is in severe pain and the financial burden of having a sick family member is unthinkable. Brooke's family have coordinated a fundraiser for Pam to help with medical expenses and ongoing care needs. The event will be held on April 9 at 3:00 p.m. in Springfield, KY. For more information on the event you can check out the Facebook Event that the family has created. During this event there will be an auction to raise funds for Pam. Brooke is asking us Classy Coupon Clippers to consider digging in our stock pile and donating items to this event. They will be creating baskets of items (laundry, snacks, etc) and putting them up to be auctioned at this event. I love this idea and what better way to pay it forward then to help a family right here in our community that is in need? If you would like to donate items for the auction you can message Brooke Durbin on Facebook or you can watch my Facebook Page tomorrow morning and we will announce a drop off location. I know God will bless this event and the sweet family that is going through this rough time. Please keep Pam Chesser, her family, and this event in your prayers :)

*Edited to Add* A drop off location has been set up for any donations! Stop by Cuttin' Up Hair Salon in the 5 D's business center (next to Cloud's) here in Harrodsburg with your donations. Items can be dropped off Tuesday 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. or Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. All items need to be in by April 9th. Thank you so much for your willingness to help this family. May God bless you for being faithful :)
