Holidays To Be Celebrated in February

If you've been reading my blog for awhile, you may remember the Something to Celebrate series I wrote in 2021.

Fundraising: Simple & Profitable with Cards

Need cash, need it fast? I know, I know, it sounds like a line from a commercial, right? Well, let me drop you a commercial that is worth tuning in to! I have been known to cringe at fundraisers.
