If anyone has any ideas that are reasonably easy and affordable, I would really appreciate it.
If anyone wanted to make some even one for us as a donation, I would so very grateful.
If anyone has any hockey connections and could send the booster club ornaments, I would so very grateful.
Any and all teams are good for the tree, AHL, NHL, ECHL, UHL, the Q, etc.. Love them all.
I don't post here very often so I hope this is the correct forum and that I am allowed to ask this here.

If I make my own ornaments and use scrap goodies that are hockey related, since it's a charity donation, I would not be infringing on rights, would I?
One thing that I have found to be nifty when making ornaments is to use "print your own" tattoo sticker paper. (it's not paper and has a few layers that need working but it works well especially when you are going to spray or paint a sealer on after.) This does not work on all materials, it simply will not stick to some of the plastic ornaments. Trial and error, fun stuff.
Nothing ventured, nothing gained and all that jazz.

I recently made a tee shirt design and went straight to the source, I asked the designer if they would mind if I used it to raise money for the American Cancer Society. They said yes. It's only for my team and the tee shirt is in memory of a team mate who recently died from breast cancer. I'm making 10 of them. Better safe than sorry. I hope to raise 100.00.

Sometimes I think with the sheer volume of fundraising that we do, it gets overwhelming. The club just wrapped up a fundraiser for the American Heart Association also.
I just have to take a deep breath and say "one day at a time"
I walked into a sports store on Monday, told them all about Trees of Hope and left with an entire bag of cool stuff for the tree. Hockey themed socks, ornaments, notepads, and a hockey keychain. I'm feeling much better about it now.
The tree is going to be great.
With that, thanks and if you can go look at the Trees of Hope, please do so because it's so much fun.

To have a friend is to have a shoulder to cry on, a hand to hold and an extra pair of legs when yours are too weak to stand alone...
I have been living buried in books and writing classes... as an added note I must say that it is rather scary when you start dreaming and all you can see within your dreams is words floating everywhere!
