More Info on the Pay It Forward Garage Sale

Alright FAB readers, it is time to kick your generosity into high gear. Our FabuLESS Pay It Forward Garage Sale is rapidly approaching (but you all knew that since it is marked on your calendars, right? Right?) and we are still in need of your donations: your time, your awesome items to sell and your yummy treats for the bake sale. Go HERE for all of the info you need to help. Also note that a 5th drop-off location has been added in Caldwell.

TOMORROW IS THE LAST DAY TO DONATE ITEMS!! But you can still bring baked goods the morning of the sale and drop them off at the Five Mile Church of the Nazarene.


Volunteers are still needed for ALL shifts. And great news: BABYSITTING WILL BE PROVIDED THURSDAY AND FRIDAY MORNINGS!!! A break from your kiddos while you give to a GREAT cause. Does it get any better? Even if you can't stay the entire time, we'd love to have you join us (plus we would love to meet you!). Email us and we will give all the info you need to know!

I know most of you have read about how this sale came to be, but what you probably don't know is what is has become. Not only have we been humbled by the support and donations from total strangers, but we have also been moved to tears by the stories of struggling families sent to us by our readers.

One email introduced us to the Wolfkiel family. Jason Wolfkiel is a 31 year old Kuna native who has been battling Familial Melanoma for 4 years. Sadly, all of the treatments thus far have yielded little results, and the cancer is back with a vengeance. His only option at this point is a treatment made available in Pennsylvania. It is an Immune System Therapy called Anti-CTLA. It requires a payment of $45,000 up front. Because of Jason's condition and subsequent treatments, he has been unable to work. His wife has gone back to work to support their 3 young children, but makes nowhere near enough to cover the cost.

That is where we come in. This sale will also benefit the Wolfkiel Family! We might only makes a small dent in the fundraising efforts, but if we have a successful sale, that might change! And that success depends on you, our fabuLESS readers.

Tell EVERYONE you know. Add our button to your blog:






Email your friends, call your family and don't forget to come. Head on over Saturday and buy buy buy.
