Frocktober - Week 4
Another Frocktober week is over. In fact Frocktober is nearly over. I'm getting to that point where I'm REALLY looking forward to wearing jeans again, but I've still got a few lovely dresses not yet worn.
It was an exciting Frocktober week, I hit my fundraising target of $4,000 and am now even a little over that. I'm so grateful to everyone who donated or came to Rock Your Frock. When I decided to aim to raise $4,000 it seemed an impossibly large amount of money. After all I've been doing this for three years, would people still be so supportive, in fact would they be more supportive (my target last year was only $2,000)?
The answer was an overwhelming yes. From the donations of friends and family, to the donations of complete strangers. Not to mention the wonderful local businesses who donated the prizes that made Rock Your Frock such a success. I'm filled with an immense sense of gratitude and I have to say a little bit of pride.
But there is still another 5 frocking days to go and some fabulous frocks to wear in that time - stay tuned.
