Tygrlilies' Purpose Statement

Did you know?
Did I ever share with you the purpose behind opening a Tygrlilies Boutique?

BOOM! There he is...

This is Race. He's our 8th Grader. Fabulous kid, He'd even tell you so himself!

This spring he and a bunch of his classmates will be taking an eye-opening, Life-changing trip to the East Coast. During spring break they will be traveling from San Diego to Philadelphia, New York and Washington DC. I've never been to any of those places and neither have my parents- OR my grandparents! You better believe DH and I were going to make sure that Race was able to take advantage of this fantastic opportunity. Whether he wanted to or not. ;oD

Fortunately, he really does want to go. A lot. He wants to go so much that he plunked down $250 of his OWN money as the down payment for the trip. He wants to go so much that he helps me craft dolls to give away as thank you gifts for donations.

This trip is going to cost over $2,000.
Lemme say it again...
Twoooooooo... Th-"OW!"-sand dollars.
I don't know about you, but I don't have a money tree growing in the back yard. And even for those of you who DO have a money tree growing in the back yard, this economy has been like a swarm of locusts for everyone across the board.
And so, we get creative.

I appealed to my friends and relatives and told them, "Hey- help us send Race to DC and I'll make you a nifty doll as a keepsake!"

Well, the sisters, friends and cousins really stepped up and started ordering left and right and I've been so busy! I am proud to say that we are almost halfway to our goal! But...we're not there yet. And so, getting even more creative...
