It’s New Year’s Eve 2015, last day of the challenge..I thought I would share with you the final results of the $50,000 Challenge! Even though I didn’t make the complete $50,000, I completed my 2nd goal of $30,000 or more. The final amount of donations collected and distributed is: $33,500.00! I am very happy with the results, making me be able to help many families in need. I will continue my mission in 2016 to complete my goal of donating a total of $100,000 to my community. I only need $15,000 to make this happen.
With this challenge, I have finally put Super Coupon Woman Foundation in action to help people on my own instead of donating to other charities. I am finally working one on one with people which has been pretty amazing. I was still able to help several charities such as: Arms of Hope, Big Brother’s and Sister’s, Helping Hands, as well as a few local charities. I was able to give out 25 backpacks filled with school supplies to those in need. I sponsored 12 families for Thanksgiving, and helped 70 Children have Christmas this year. After completing these missions, I gave the remaining items to those affected in Texas by the tornado’s which had a retail value of $1,725.00 of which $1,500.00 were new items.
I am very proud of this accomplishment because I thought about calling it off several times due to financial issues that took over $7,000 out of my budget. My friends, family, and fans gave me the support I needed to continue on, and encouraged me to move forward to see how much I could donate. Without their help, I would of not made my goal, it showed me that working together really does make a difference.
Thank you to everyone that donated, supported, and encouraged me. There have been tears, stress, uncertainty, but also happiness, excitement, and anticipation that has made it all worth it. Even with the $7,000 financial setback, I was able to spend $2,000 of my own money along with some amazing friends to be able to pay it forward to so many people in 2015. I never dreamed when I started couponing and donating that one day I would be able to say as a single mom, I was able to give back close to $100,000 to my community. I look forward to sharing my story in the book I am currently writing to inspire and teach others why it is so important to give back to your community, and how couponing can allow us to do so! I am hoping to have the book out sometime in January 2016! Below is some pictures of some of the great moments of this challenge.
