    Ms. Goff,

    Hopefully this message will reach you in time. In reference to your Backpack campaign I have a small coin funnel or wishing well I offer for use to neighbors and schools and such to collect donations. It is a good suppliment to collect some extra moneys. Especially when there are children around.

    I offer the use of the well for free with no restrictions for your event. Below is a short YouTube clip of the well in use. It is portable, comes apart and fits in a small car. You can even interchage signs on it to support your own cause (15w x 14h). My lady friend will be happy to get it out of the house if just for a day or morning. It also has no personal logos or advertizing on it.

    Please consider the well as a nice donation suppliment and a great attention getter.

    Write or call me about using it for this or other events. I live about seven miles from the Kingstown Apple in the Mt. Vernon area.

    This is the youtube link: Please ignore the hype in the video, it was probably designed to sell the wells which I do not.

    Best wishes and good luck.
