Morris Yard Sale Dodges the Rain and Sets a Record

We feared it would be a weatherly repeat of last year's sale with sleet and possibly snow. But the yard sale-ing gods pushed the bad weather south of Morris and we had a beautiful day.

Thanks to wonderful publicity from the Morris Sun Tribune, we set a new record, raising $2,483 in sales and donations. There are so many ways to break this money down into the services it will provide to the children, but I like to think of it as two mommies to the children for an entire year.

As usual, Sam's House owes a large debt of gratitude to many, many people who contributed to the sale's success through time, money, donations, word-of-mouth, and, most importantly, labor, lots of labor.


Here's a big kiss from Sandeep for all of you...

The porch store was busy all day.


Jo Johnson's beanie baby collection lives on, but may only have a few years left.


Just to be safe, we put up a tent, thanks to Mike Cihak. Fortunately we didn't need it, but it was still nice to have.

Dennis Stewart (tent entrance, in green coat) enjoys a muffaletta sandwich.

After getting more than 10000 visitors/day to my website I thought your www.samshouseblog.org website also need unstoppable flow of traffic...

Use this BRAND NEW software and get all the traffic for your website you will ever need ...

= = > > http://get-massive-autopilot-traffic.com

In testing phase it generated 867,981 visitors and $540,340.

Then another $86,299.13 in 90 days to be exact. That's $958.88 a
day!!

And all it took was 10 minutes to set up and run.

But how does it work??

You just configure the system, click the mouse button a few
times, activate the software, copy and paste a few links and
you're done!!

Click the link BELOW as you're about to witness a software that
could be a MAJOR turning point to your success.
