In an effort to raise funds for its Scholarship Fund, Abundant Journeys is launching a series of campaigns for 2014. Our Annual Giving Program is funded primarily through apparel sales (buy an item today). However, our goal of $5,000 to start a formal scholarship fund would not be adequately supported solely through our apparel store. Hence, the idea of this fundraiser was born.
In past years, we have given to various different organizations in a less formal way. In 2014, we wish to develop our annual giving into a more defined plan starting with the Scholarship Fund.
As a small business, we have to be smart about the way we spend our discretionary dollars. When you participate either as a fundraiser and/or purchaser in our program, you will have a direct impact on the success of our annual giving goals. Our initial campaign will kick-off mid-January 2014 and will last six (6) weeks. We are teaming up with Bonfire Funds to operate the fundraiser. Stay tuned to this page for the launch of the campaign.

Our immediate need is fundraisers. The faster we obtain at minimum 10 folks ready to participate in our fundraising campaign, the faster the campaign will commence. We need at least 10 participants committed to sell shirts no later than January 5, 2014 11pm CST. Will you join our campaign?
