If you're short on cash but still would like to help out your local Democrats, the Livingston County Democrats have a deal for you. Actually, the Michigan Challenge Balloonfest has a deal for you.
The balloonfest, held each year in Howell, is a great family-friendly festival that attracts hordes of people. Most people come by car and parking could be a nightmare if left to chance. But it's not. The balloonfest organizers line up many volunteers to direct people to parking areas, and then makes a payment of $7 an hour to an organization they name. The payments are covered by a sponsor each year.
This year's balloonfest will be held June 24, 25, and 26. If you'd like to volunteer, fill out this form and fax or send to the balloonfest organizers. Be sure to list Livingston County Democrats, 10321 Grand River Road, Suite 600, Brighton, MI 48116 as your designated organization.
It's a great way to help out even if you are short on cash.
