Upcoming events

It's about halfway through the season and I just wanted to thank everyone who has supported us so far and tell you about some upcoming events. We are now up to 7 miles for our long runs/walks- more than halfway to that half marathon! We also have a good start with our fundraising, but we still need a lot of help there. We are at about $1700 toward our goal of $8700. With your help, we have raised quite a bit so far, but there is still a long way to go in our fight against blood cancers!

Please contribute what you can and join us at our upcoming events if you're in the area.

March 28: Soup supper and bake sale at North Crow River Lutheran Church in Cokato, MN. Enjoy a variety of homemade soups and take home some delicious baked goods. $5 minimum donation per person.

April 12: Pampered Chef party at Becca's apartment in St. Paul, MN. Purchase your favorite Pampered Chef items from the full catalog and 15% of sales will go to LLS. Email Becca at to RSVP and get directions.

You may also place your order online at Enter Becca Nelson as the host to have your order count toward the fundraiser. We can ship to anywhere in the country!

April 17: Bootleggers Beer Bust, 8 to 10 pm. Purchase a cup from the TNT table for $5 and fill it with domestic taps or rail drinks for only $1 as many times as you want! Be sure to come out early to get the most for your money and show your support for the Team! Bootleggers is located at 323 North 1st Avenue in Downtown Minneapolis.

As always, you can donate directly to LLS through our website. Hope to see you soon!

Purple envelopes!

My mail has been full of purple envelopes for the last few days! (Purple envelopes = donations in response to the letter we mailed out last week.) A huge thank you to everyone who has been sending them in! We now officially have just about $800, according to our website, and $319 more in checks to send in to LLS. Thank you!

A few more ways you can help out now:

  • Donate your used books, CDs, and DVDs. We will sell them through Amazon and donate all proceeds to LLS. Mail your books to the address below.
  • Volunteer to work at our upcoming spaghetti dinner, silent auction, and bake sale. Date TBD, but soon.
  • Help us collect silent auction items or bake cookies for the spaghetti dinner.
  • Visit our Stamp Out Cancer shops: or We are always adding new items, and 100% of every sale goes to LLS!
  • Donate! Make your donation through our Andy's Angels TNT Page or by mailing your check, payable to LLS, to the address below. Remember, any amount helps. Even if you can only give $5 or $10, you are making a difference!
We really appreciate all of your support, in any way you can give it. We all believe strongly in the cause we are fighting for, so that someday, nobody will have to fight blood cancers or lose a loved one to these terrible diseases.
