My friends and I weren’t outside waiting to empty our bank-accounts, instead we arrived armed with coffee, hot chocolate, apple cider, brownies, cookies, muffins and more. As those cold, bored people waited in line at 1, 2 and 3:00 in the morning, we sold them our deliciously warm goods. Steaming cups of caffeinated happiness. Individually wrapped chocolate packages of joy.
It was awesome. They loved us and we raised almost $200!! What a great way to fundraise, right? One dear soul in our group brought a propane heater, so during a baked-goods lull, we’d crowd around it, warming our hands and bursting with laughter. At 2am!!
It was a great Black Friday.
