That being said, I have the coolest, nicest and most thoughtful neighbors out there. Living in a cul-de-sac of 4-plexes has been super fun, and my building takes the cake of awesomeness. As soon as my neighbors found out about my cancer problem they immediately wanted to do something. In passing Rachel mentioned maybe they should do a yard sale or something.....and that was it. They all jumped on the idea and immediately started sending out texts and making phone calls. They made cute fliers and sent them throughout the ward. Rachel made super awesome signs (dang I should get a picture of one....maybe to be added later today). They all called and went to the local businesses asking for donations. I'm not sure all who donated but I'd like to thank Runner's Corner and Murdock Hyundai especially because I know they were very generous.
After more than a week of planning, calling, picking up donations, etc. the yard sale was finally upon us. I stayed inside because I felt weird helping out at a fundraiser for myself ha. But all my neighbors and half the ward spent from 7am till almost 5pm outside supervising and organizing the sales. I couldn't believe how many people came. Lots of people entered the raffles, bought the delicious food made by ward members, and bought all the stuff that was donated. It was amazing. It was also crazy hot, which makes my neighbors even more amazing for sitting outside all day long.
