Cookie Fundraising 2020
Updated: Feb 4, 2021
Update: Thank you so much to all who ordered cookies or simply gave. We are beyond blessed by your kindness and generosity. We were able to fully pay off all of our debt and put some money aside to cover future medial or visa costs.
10-24 December 2020 – We are currently running a Christmas Cookie Fundraiser: (Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/383043209466258)
Most families in Germany bake hundreds of cookies over the Christmas season. We have chosen eight of our favourite recipes to share with you. You should smell the fragrance in our house over the last few days – cinnamon, cloves, baked shortbread, freshly ground nuts, homemade marzipan. It is a feast for the senses! Have a try or gift them to someone special.
We are doing this fundraiser because we had a few larger bills this year related to Liana’s medical condition, with a fair number of check-ups with specialists, and fees related to our communication with our visa lawyer. These expenses put us into a minus of about 5,000 AUD. This fundraiser’s aim is to put a bit of a dent into that debt as we are also working on slowly paying it all off.
