In Memory of Rachel Allen- A Charity coupon class

For anyone in Queen Creek that might not have heard, a little 5 year old girl named Rachel and her brother drowned in their family pool on Saturday, August 22nd.  She was on life support for several days and returned to Heavenly Father in the early morning hours of Tues. Aug, 25. In a loving final tribute to their daughter the Allen's chose to donate Rachel's organs which will help several other families.  This family was new to the Castlegate community and to our ward. 
There has been a huge outpouring of love and service from members of our ward, church and community but there is still more that needs to be done.  My neighbor, Kolina came up with a great idea to hold a coupon class, and give all of the proceeds to the Allen Family.

Here are the details:
When--Saturday, Sept. 12th
Time--10:00 am
Where--Kolina's home in Queen Creek (Castlegate Community)

Learn about how to:
Cut your grocery bill in at least half
Maximize the benefits of using coupons
Get stuff for FREE
Work on building your food storage/year supply
Utilize FREE resources
Organizing coupons

In Kolina's classes, she focuses strongly on how to utilize free resources. There are no strings attached. She gives the tools to get you started on saving money. There will also be door prizes!

If you would like to particpate, please leave a comment on Kolina's blog with your e-mail address and how much you would like to donate (minimum donation of $10 please). The class is limited to either the first 10 people to respond, or the 10 highest bidders.

High bidders will be contacted by e-mail on Saturday, Sept. 5th, and will then need to pay their bids through Paypal on the Rachel Allen Memorial Fund site no later than Wednesday, Sept. 9th. If you are a high bidder selected to participate in the class, directions to Kolina's home will be sent to you.

This is a great way to donate to a good cause and learn to save thousands of dollars every year on your grocery bill!

100% of the proceeds will go to the family.
If there is a large response to this class, she will consider adding another date.
