Don't tease me; I'm not in the mood. FUNdraiser

I don't know about you, but I despise teasers: "Accumulating snow; I'll have the details for you later." I don't want to hear THAT you are going to tell me something, just tell me. I have a friend who calls and leaves teasers: "Guess WHO I ran into today? Call me." A relative: "Guess what! Give me a call." For goodness sakes, just TELL ME if you are already talking, emailing or texting; don't make me guess or wait. I'm frustrated with newscasters, bloggers, friends and family members who do this. Maybe I am frustrated with the thought of more snow. That danged groundhog.

The small, private, self-supporting early childhood center where I work (a not for profit) is doing a fundraiser in May and seeking donations for a silent auction. If you know of any individual/business/corporation that would be willing to make a tax- deductible monetary donation,or donate gift certificates, sporting event tickets product or services ie:(hair cut/manicure/massage/spa, or anything else you can think of, please let me know. Our preschool is a one-of-a-kind in the nation, established in 2002 for children with life-threatening food allergies, although we serve children who do not have food allergies. You can check us out Our Little School 5516 So Kingshighway, on line at You can see photos of my students and me in class.

Tickets for the Aller-tini, a cocktail party at SqWires will be May 21st. Tickets $25 Please, will you pass this info on? Thank you.

Nonprofits are always struggling to survive, and even more so in today's economy. I hope your event is successful!

Guess What?! Just Kidding!
I had no idea your school was non-profit - and provides such an important service. I wish you much success, and will pass along your request.
