Over break I talked to my parents about the commitments and all of the work we, as a family, will do to make this carnival happen. I will be having help from friends and family so that I won't have anymore money to have to spend on workers. After thinking about it, I have realized that, obviously, the carnival will cost money. What I didn't realize is how much. I am planning on hosting the carnival at my school and I really wanted to have it outside but having it outside would mean that I would need a tent. Previously I had mentioned that I would be able to get a tent from a family friend for a good price, but now I know that even at an extremely discounted price, the tent will cost A LOT of money, which I don't have. So I had the idea to email the Alzheimer's foundation for help. Whether they can help fund the event, or have advice on how to host the carnival for low cost, I think emailing them would help a lot. Currently I am writing the email but I am hesitant on how to write it because I don't want to sound like I'm begging for money, but at the same time I need to get the message across to them how important this is to me and how I need help with the funding.
