Host an Affordable Family Reunion Seven year's ago my husband, two children and myself moved from York, Pennsylvania to beautiful upstate New York.

I am constantly in search of ideas to help out my fundraising friends. Through my searches I have learned that fundraising is not just about raising money. It is about forming and growing relationships within your community in an attempt to change lives...to make the world a better place to live.
