* Time for Some Cowculations

Cow tape measureSo where are we at? We have raised $270.00 since May 5. Woot!1

This includes a ballpark estimate for the bags waiting to go to the depot.

When I started the 2nd cow project on May 5, I had a target date of June 12 to be finished -- 5 weeks. This time round, I had some cash in hand from the first cow (good), but I was unlikely to get any cash donations.

Could we really do it? 3000 bottles in 5 weeks -- 600 bottles per week if there less than a litre. Yikes.

By May 18, we had raised enough for 1/3 of a cow but most of that was the carry over.

We were actually following behind the ambitious goal of 600 bottles per week. Fortunately, Jim showed up with bags of bottles. Whew!!

So in the next week, we need to collect 300 bottles and cans to hit the target.

Come one everyone we can do this!

The result of the weekend's collection of cans in our family netted $21.50 worth of cans and bottles. Nathan still hasn't given me his count but he is writing exams--I'll wait until after his math exam to check in with him!

The cheque for one (or possibly two) cow nostril(s) is in the mail!
