Long time no post!!!

Hello All!

Sorry it's been so long since I've posted! With family in town and random weekend trips life has gotten busy!

Here is an update! We are collecting money to buy Awesome Auntie Deb and Matt some gift certificates for Southwest Airlines so they can fly back and forth (or wherever they need to) without worrying about the cost. We have tried and tried to figure out how to donate frequent flier miles but there is no easy solution so this is the next best thing. Any $ that you send would be GREATLY appreciated!!! Becky, a fellow Matt follower, has volunteered to collect all of the funds and purchase the gift certificates. We want all money to be sent in by August 10th so we can send it to Matt by August 13th (his and Liz's anniversary). Please contact Becky at rrk895@hotmail.com and she will send you her address to send the checks. Thanks to all of you who are willing to donate, hopefully we can get them enough for a few free flights!!!

Thanks again,
Rachel

What a great idea! Couldn't a PayPal account be set up for this?

@Anonymous: Paypal charges to withdraw funds and we wanted all of the money collected to go to Matt and Auntie Deb. I am collecting checks but people are free to make them out to me or the airline (Southwest), and when donating, I provide my address, which incidentally is a house that is for sale (by me - I'm a realtor) so a quick Google search and you have all of my personal information to verify where you're sending the funds. ~Becky

Maddy looks bored!

How about sending something like this:

Hello All - Just a quick update to let you know the airline money collection is off to an awesome start. Donations are flowing and you guys are the best! I'll be sure to have Rachel post the final totals but please keep the contributions coming and email with any questions. rrk895 at hotmail dot com.

I just e-mailed Becky about a donation. Thanks!

I just found this blog; I usually just read Matt's

IT could be that people have about to expire airline miles or SWA certificates that they could be persuaded to donate......
