Due to Covid-19, we were unable to hold our annual 5k walk/run. So instead we decided to create a week-long virtual event, with the goal of raising 100 toys for kids at Children's Hospital Colorado. Each day we featured a story and a toy, and held mini events like our Car Wash and Silent Auction.
We are happy to report that our 2020 Virtual Event was a great success! The outpouring of love and support has been incredible. We started talking about the idea of an organization like this back in January, and when Covid-19 hit, we really weren’t sure what we would do. We decided to try for a virtual event, and see what happened. While it definitely wasn’t ideal, and there were many bumps and learning moments along the way, I am so glad that we decided to do it. Because of you, we raised over $1700 and 153 toys to be given to kids who are in the hospital during one of the scariest times to be there. That is absolutely amazing!
You can access our daily newsletters from the event below:
At the car wash, which took place on Monday and Tuesday, we raised $500 and 50 toys!
At our virtual silent auction, we auctioned off a wide variety of items, including baskets from sponsors and handmade bowls and masks. We were able to raise $600 alone just from this one mini event!
