Iceland :) ...one of the most popular destinations it seems ..are you a FB user ?? If Yes, "Team Diabetes" will get you there , LIKE and the rest I am sure you know .I visit every so often and sign up for Webinars ( specifically directed to " fund raising " and members share, what works for them or for those who want to find out about the program .What seem to work for me is the ASK via e-mail , hand delivered letters , members have donated towards mine and I match ( this way we both get a tx receipt) .Instead of BD , Christmas gifts etc. , friends, fam donate to my event.Next BD we will have a " party " at a local fav coffee shop ; those who attend can choose from menu , hubby will pay the bill and a min of $$$ is asked .I have added a discussion in the Canada Group , which I try to update regularly .I was interviewed by local paper about my event in A'dam ...this got people to donate :) ...only a few top of my head ideas ...if you like , I can give you via a pm our e-mail address ?? cheerio , N
