My next step in getting to Romania is to begin fundraising for my living costs there. I decided on a spur of the moment garage sale. 6 days earlier, to be exact. I sent out emails to collect donations and the response was outstanding! Throughout the week, I collected tons of furniture, bags of clothes, and random things you never expect to sell, but do.
Saturday morning, my family and I woke up at 5:30 and got set up for a long morning. Shout out to my siblings, parents and good friend, Drew for helping me at that brutal hour.
I survived the early morning with the help of donuts and coffee donated by Linda Guido and Dee Benson. (Dee also donated her dining room set and leather chairs- BIG sellers! Thank you!)
Overall, the garage sale was super successful! All of the furniture sold, and the remaining clothes and shoes were donated to the Salvation Army.
