So...What do you think....

OK... Here is my story......

I'm organizing an effort at our church to raise enough money to install a clean water well and distribution system in a village in Tanzania. The situation in some of those villages is really quite dire, and without clean water there is no hope for improvement.

As you can imagine, it costs a bit of money (like $10 - 12,000) and this is quite a stretch for our little congregation. It will probably take us a year to get there.

So we are trying to reach out into the community and encourage others to contribute to the cause with us.

I'm planning a holiday cardmaking fundraiser, hoping that I can reach out to a few different people who we otherwise would not connect with.

My plan is to offer a class where they make 2 each of the 4 cards shown (8 total). They would have the chance to try watercolor pencils, stamping in color, and embossing techniques.

I have two different color/image styles groupings for them to choose from.

Here are my samples - what do you think? What would you charge for a class like this if all the proceeds are going to charity?

What a wondeful cause, these cards are great, don't think there would be any problem getting people to sign up for the class.

It's so kind of you! I think people are willing to pay like 20 bucks for this class. It's for Charity!

Great cards. I think it is a wonderful idea for a good cause.

The cards are adorable.

Card classes in my area usually run $20 and the proceeds go to the store/instructor.

Since this is for a charity and the people will be learing techniques and such, maybe you should charge $30?

I hope your class is very successful.
