Hello, my name is Keaton Smith. I am calling you today to ask if you would like to take part in the Smith Family Fundraiser. The money that we are trying to raise will go towards a new swing set for your darling grandchildren. We are not asking for just a donation, but are seeking employment to earn money. Do you currently have any unfinished projects around your house that we all could help you complete? We have on staff, three children and two adults. Our family of five are committed to making sure that you are 100% satisfied with our workmanship. If you are not satisfied with our work, we will not accept your payment. We will not accept payment until all of our projects are completed. We are skilled in the following areas: Cleaning, mowing lawns, organizing, painting, heavy lifting, yard work (mowing), dusting, hanging pictures, contact paper installment, computer repair, garage cleaning, and other chores as needed. Picture yourself at a getaway complete with massage and manicure (at your expense of course) while we take care of everything at home. Our availability is very flexible and we travel up to 50 miles. Our main goal is to leave our customers less stressed at the end of their day and to finish those projects that have been waiting to be fixed, leaving you with more time for activities such as skiing, backpacking, and skateboarding. Or perhaps, you will find yourself with enough extra time to pick up a new hobby, such as skydiving. If you are interested, please get back with us with a list of projects you wish us to begin working on as we have to match the job with the appropriate person on staff according to their skill set. Can we count on your participation?
They desperately need a new swing set.
Summer is coming and theirs is past unsafe.
Never underestimate the ability of the human spirit to persevere.
I couldn't get my wallet out fast enough...
This is a big deal. They are all wanting to work for any donations from both of their grandparental units. I have to come up lists for each one, according to their personal abilities. When they are on their swing set this summer, they will each be able to take satisfaction in their own particular contributions to this project.
They already have money in their account for the wonderful idea and presentation. First, a personal phone call with Keaton reading the proposal to me. I was laughing so hard and so proud at the same time Then the written presentation - I like to think they got their talent from me. Popa was almost in tears, he loved it too. I can't wait to have them over and document this fabulous Story for all of us. I am so proud of them, I am bursting at the seams.
It will be a grand day when we bring home the 5 big boxes from Costco and as we help build it, we all will rememeber that is started with the idea that hard work isn't for other people. If you want Something, you need to pony up and be willing to do your part. I am so happy to be a part of such a wonderful project. I will remember this Moment forever, and so will they...
