Sheila O'DonnellI’ve been raising money since I sold sweet and sour lollipops in junior high school, for the travel expenses of my debate team…which means that I’ve been a grassroots fundraiser for over twenty years.  About a decade ago I learned about Kim Klein and the Grassroots Fundraising Journal, both an incredible resource for grassroots fundraisers (seriously, if you want to raise money for anything and you don’t have a subscription to the Grassroots Fundraising Journal, get one, you will NOT be sorry).
