Three weeks later another significant shift event took place. The mom of one of the teens that were going on the trip had worked with the local high school swing choir with fundraising so that individual volunteered to ORGANIZE A RUMMAGE SALE. It was massive! We asked for donations for several weeks in advance, and we spent hours sorting, folding, and pricing sale items in preparation for the sale. In our wildest dreams, we thought we might raise $3,000. We would have considered anything over $1,000 a good day. A lot of folks donated some excellent stuff, and we promoted the sale in our community. We also let the community know on site that this was a fundraiser for a mission trip. In the end, we raised almost $6,000!
