Frocktober Day 31 – Going out with a BANG

Dear Diary,

Well I save the best for last and broke out my SHOT GUN WEDDING DREES for the occasion of THE END OF FROCKTOBER!!!

What a ride it has been!

It took 3 and a half hours to walk the main street of Merredin and I am thrilled to say that today alone, the town of Merredin raised $426!!!!!  

I am so humbled by how amazing and generous the people in my little town are.  I am sure many of them have been questioning my sanity throughout the whole month, see the look on this lady’s face…….

Thank you so much Merredin Wheattbelt Mercury for following me through this crazy event

And a big thankyou to all who donated and saw me in the street and didn’t call the ‘looney van’ on me, This experience has made me grow, again, imagine what I can do now after stepping out of my comfort zone for the whole month.  How am I going to top this next year??? …..don’t be silly, of course I already have plans for next year – you ALL may be involved!!!!!

So, online we raised, together $740

And today alone, you all generously helped me raise $426

I am so amazed by you all!!

And I believe that all of us FROCKTOBIANS have surpassed the $250,000 mark all together, that is astounding!! Getting us closer to some better early detection for ovarian cancer and closer to eradicating this awful disease.

Tomorrow, some of the money will go to the cause too, so COME AND JOIN ME FOR LUNCH TOMORROW!!! details HERE, bring your friends and your kids (there is a lolly buffet!!! and so many awesome little shops set up just for you)

I did do a little vlog and I will put it up with tomorrows finale blog post with the grand total you awesome people have helped me raise!

Love Kirsty

xx

PS. if you missed me today you can still donate here

    Oh I adore this post and these photos so so so so much. What an effort you’ve gone to for such an incredible cause. Will share tomorrow to maybe get more exposure for your post. You look exquisite. My favourite is in front of the country Target with both of you in all your splendour. Just gorgeous!
