I have purchased individual bags for the cookies and some sprinkles, bringing the total spent to $362.82. I will upload receipts soon. I may need some more eggs, butter, and brown sugar, but besides that all that's left is bubble wrap and shipping costs!
There is still a lot of time left in the campaign to share/donate! The more raised at this point means the more donations to Everytown and March for Our Lives.
Thank you to everyone who has donated so far! We are 37% funded and I'm confident we can get to 50% by the end of the coming week.
I have started shopping for ingredients and have two volunteers who are going to bake this week! I will post copies of receipts and a tally of what I've spent later this week. I have done a lot of comparison shopping and math to make sure the money stretches and there is plenty to donate at the end of the campaign.
I am very excited to have gotten our first donations today! I am going to start buying ingredients. I will post all receipts here. Since I am buying in bulk, figuring out exact amounts needed is not an easy thing to do. I will use anything extra in my business, so I will carefully keep track and donate the cost of any "excess" ingredients that I wind up keeping back to the campaign. I will be very transparent about all of this, I want you to know that the money is being spent properly.
