    They never announce if they are still doing the lanyards at conference but I couldn't remember if the dates are from Sept 08-May 09 or if it's Jan 09-May 09. If it's from September I've already earned mine! I've had $140 in donations and 11 trivets sold!

    From 9/1/08 to today I have $198.00 in donations plus 5 trivets.

    Wow, I'm slacking this year! Last earning period I had over $300 in donations!

    Oh, I'm not doing so good. I have 21 trivets sold but only $76 in donations. Where did you get your donation info? I clicked on donations but it didn't total it, just gave me a list - is that right?

    The total is at the bottom of the list.

    21 trivets is really good, that's $42!

    I talk about the Round Up program at every show. I talk about rounding up their order and purchasing the trivet. I also give each host a trivet if they get 7 orders before their show.

    I talk about RUFTH at every show. Whenever I tell someone their total I tell them both amounts i.e., "That's $34.85 or $35 if you want to round up." It's rare for someone not to round up.

    I've started filling in both amounts on the receipt. I explain what it's about & then I circle whichever they choose.

    I always promote both at my parties too. But I too do not get much interest for the trivets. I do have almost $100 in donations. I guess though if I were doing 8 shows a month I would be doing better as I rarely have anyone say no to the round-up. They do say no to the trivet a lot though. I even use it always when serving our dish. Still, nothing much. I think I have 8 sold this year. I like the idea of giving one to each host though for x amount of pre-orders. That is pretty good!

    In the past they've had a special lanyard for at NC for those who raised at least $150 in RUFTH donations and special seating at one of the breakfasts.

    I was wondering if anyone knew what the date range is since it said you can do either 150.00 in either the trivets or the pink items or do a combination of those items but donations and so I was wondering does that include like last may products 2008 ? If anyone knows info would be helpful thanks :)

    There are several ways you can qualify for recognition at National Conference as a result of your work through our Charitable Giving Programs:

    * Submit a total of $150 or more in combined contributions to the Help Whip Cancer® 1 and Round-Up From the Heart® 2 campaigns.

    * Submit a total of $150 or more in total contributions to Help Whip Cancer® 1.

    1 HWC contributions are comprised of the total HWC Fundraiser Show sale donation and each $1 donation from the sale of special pink products. This is for the period of October 1-31, 2008, and May 1-31, 2009. Shows must be submitted by midnight (CT) June 5, 2009.

    2 RUFTH contributions are comprised of the donation total from the sale of the RUFTH 2008 Trivet and total round-up donations. This is for the period of Sept. 1, 2008 to June 5, 2009. Shows must be submitted by midnight (CT) June 5, 2009.

    Yesterday's PC Newswire included the following addition:

    * Submit a total of $150 or more in Round-Up from the Heart® contributions.

    (RUFTH contributions are comprised of the donation total from the sale of the RUFTH 2008 Trivet and total round-up donations. This is for the period of Sept. 1, 2008 to June 5, 2009. Shows must be submitted by midnight (CT) June 5, 2009.)

    * Volunteer as a 2009 Food Bank Coordinator.


    So, to answer your question, Christina, the RUFTH donations need to be between Sept. 1, 2008 and June 5, 2009. Only 2009 HWC donations count.

    what does the food bank coordinator do? I looked on the website and could not find any information. Is it a job that only a few elite people get? what do you do for it?

    You have to sign up. I don't know all of the details, but there's only one in each designated area.

    In the past, coordinators had to be Directors or above, although last year they were accepting applications from consultants because there were no volunteers for some of the food banks. The coordinator is expected to hold at least 1 FR or other event for their food bank during the year, then complete an update form to send to HO. They also can set up a check presentation.

    Yikes! It has been $150 for as many years as I can remember now and I somehow knew it ran until the 5th of June for quite a while now. I do not remember where I saw that. You know what though? Not getting there is not a problem, a problem would be if you didn't try! $140 is somethig to feel good about. Yeah, I know and I am totally into the pat on the back thing but congradulate your self anyway. I had a terrible time this year getting people to round up.
    So congrats on your $140 and WAAAHOOOO!

    Earlier they posted that it was just $150 for HWC or HWC/RUFTH combined. They didn't say anything about RUFTH alone this year. I should have definitely worked harder. Bummer!!

    Ain't we all into carrots!
    I know you feel bad about that Kristi but like I said, you did a good thing anyway. Like with HWC - I set a goal of $6000 in sales this year and you can see the number I hit last year was $4260. Well, I was far from both this year but I refuse to kick myself. I would have been happy if I could have only gotten $4 from the HWC stuff I bought and a few RUFTH pennies! (Besides it beats the heck out of ALL THE MENTAL BLACK AND BLUE FOOTPRINTS I would have left on my behind!)
    But Rae and you are correct. We do some of this for that "pat on the back". Especially when we forget to give it to ourselves! So I will give you a major pat on the back and a big cyber hug for all you have done!
    As well as to anyone who tried.
    Now, I am going to ask a stupid question here. Rae you will probably know the answer to this as I have a tendancy to skip the fine print on everything and find fun surprises I had no idea I earned. But, I read the HWC info and I believe that all the Round ups still go to Feeding America in May, right? I put that on all my order forms so I hope it was true. But if it went to HWC that is OK with me as well. I reread it again and still can nto quite decide if I am reading it correctly. (Just call me numb for right now!)

    Yes, even during May the Round-Up donations go to Feeding America. That's been the case ever since RU went to all-year.

    Thanks Ann! I thought so. And I am doing the trivets as my hostess gifts just for hosting. Funny how I can't sell the darn things but give them away and they are appreciated. People are so fickle!

    I did know the answer, John, but Ann beat me to it. ;) I tend to read all of the fine print. Remembering it is sometimes an issue.

    My people kind of go in waves with the trivel. I sell a lot around Christmas because I push it as a great gift for teachers, coaches, etc.
