Max's Garage Sale

Thought I'd put our good ideas to work and see how a real Max's Garage Sale would work.

Saturday, March 20, 2010 I'm hosting a garage sale in our driveway with 100% of the proceeds going to pediatric cancer research.

For those of you that had contacted us this past November following our volunteer party, you have access to our Google Group page that has a list of files to help with your own fundraising (if you're interested in volunteering your time and talents, we can still add you to our group!). None of the fundraising ideas have been put to use yet, so I thought I'd break the ice.

With the garage sale, my kids want to host a lemonade stand. I'll post pictures of how it turns out to inspire and awe you!

I could use your help with our garage sale:
  • Stuff - I need it.
  • Buyers - I need you to come with full wallets! *I will be able to process credit car donations on my new iPhone!! Woo-hoo!
  • Share - if you would be so kind in sharing this information with your friends, letting them know about our garage sale and that all the money raised will go to kids' cancer research.
If you are interested in cleaning out your garage and donating some items to our sale, we will be happy to sell them for the cause. Here's a help list of what we will try to sell and what we've learned from experience doesn't sell:
Yes, we'll take it:
  • Baby/toddler clothing in good condition
  • Toys
  • Furniture in pretty good shape
  • Home Electronics (tv, radio, dvd players, etc.)
  • Art Supplies
  • Anything for kids
  • Computers and Equipment
  • Art Supplies
  • DVDs & CDs
  • Gardening equipment
  • Art & Collectibles
  • and more!
No thank you - doesn't sell:
  • Bed mattresses, sheets
  • Item's too "used" or worn
  • Magazines, books
  • Anything dirty or dusty
  • Anything torn or with stains
  • Shoes (unless new and unworn)
  • Clothing not for babies/ toddlers
  • Upholstered furniture not in great shape
Depending on the size of the item(s) you'd like to donate, we can try to schedule a pick-up if you're unable to drop off. I can't promise anything.

Email me: Mel@MaxsRingOfFire.org

On the move with more fundraising for the cause.

Live Life to the Max - fall into our Ring of Fire!

Can I borrow your list about garage sale items on Erin's website. Her school is having a garage sale to fund a scholarship in her memory and I like the way you have guided your donors.
