After the Spencer Halloween visit to Integris, a few of our big-hearted members were so moved by the plight of the children at the hospital that they voted that night to take on the effort of raising all the money necessary to provide a new coat and new shoes for every child for Christmas, just like we did last year.

I’ll admit, after our huge effort in 2016, I was not going to ask us to repeat the fundraiser in 2017…figured I’d give you all a break. But I was thrilled to hear that we’ve decided to do it without any prompting on the council’s part…you guys are the best!



And so we begin our largest, shortest fundraiser ever. We’ll need to raise $15,000 by Dec. 16. And you want to hear something crazy? I know we can do it!



We will hold two “official” JediOKC fundraisers: Sat. Nov. 25 Karaoke for Koats at 7 pm (McKinley Design Studio, 220 NW 59th St., OKC—see the post in Conventions & Events for all the glorious details) and our annual Art Auction on Dec. 16 during our JediOKC Christmas Party. The hospital will need to have the money by then in order to gift the items to the kids by their Integris Christmas Party on or about Dec. 20 (which we have been invited to attend, dress up and deliver the coats & shoes).



We have a GoFundMe campaign to reach friends & family that are interested in donating but unable to attend these events: https://www.gofundme.com/jediokc-coats-shoes-for-integris Please--share this like crazy on social media with all your friends and family.



Other ideas for collecting funds:



--Have a bake sale at work and donate the proceeds

--Save your loose change and bring it to a JediOKC meeting (or loose $1 bills…those things just take up space in your wallet for $10’s and $20’s)

--Sell an unused prop, costume or collectible and donate the funds



We’ve got to get creative if we are going to do this.



But I know we can! We are JediOKC! We are many! And we…are…mighty!

A quick update on our efforts:

Cash donated at JediOKC Club meetings has raised $308.
Karaoke for Koats raised $804!
Other offline donations raised $210
GoFundMe (as of today) is at $2495

We are almost to $4000, and we still have a way to go.

As today is Giving Tuesday...please share our GoFundme account. Please consider donating today, too.

We have $6000 to go. Even though our Art Auction at Christmas raises a considerable amount in one night, we've historically never approached $6K, so we'll need to hustle for the next two weeks to get there.
