[nfbmi-talk] Fund Raising Idea

Hey J.J., That is a great price and a great idea. Currently as for the past 
two years the Western Wayne County chapter is selling dry cherries and dark 
chocolate covered cherries. We have just added dry blueberries and chocolate 
covered blueberries to sell at the board meeting and national convention. 
Hopefully you can try some then. Though the Amazon price is really good, 
most people don't want to buy anything that individuals may have touched 
with their germy hands. I understand that Amazon can be linked through 
differing organizations and then the group gets a percentage of the sales. 
That could be a workable, ongoing fundraiser. Thanks for the brain storming,
