Hey y’all I am back! Today is Wednesday, January 28, 2015 and I had to recite my Elevator Pitch Speech in class. I had to discuss about what I am doing, how it affects me, and how it affects others. It had to be 30 seconds to 90 seconds, but I believe I had presented for about 33 seconds. Recently, I have tried to come up with cute little quotes or sayings to attach to the goody bags. For example, you can see in the photo attached, “H.O.P.E. Hold on, Pain ends”. I believe that this is pretty short but meaningful. Sure, some of the homeless people have heard of these kind of sayings, but it does not hurt to attach them to the goody bags so that we can make their day but just a simple quote. Jenn and I will try our best to make sure to not have the same quotes for the goody bags, and try to have as many different kind of quotes or sayings.
This week we have to prepare an elevator pitch that provides information about our project and why it is important to us. I was planning to talk for about 30 seconds to about 45 seconds. I feel like this project is important to me because I feel like this project will impact me in a different way. In other words, I feel like I will get to see what the lives of the homeless are like. Also, I will be able to experience different emotions when I will be distributing goodies to the needy. We have some recipe ideas to put in the goodies. For example, we are thinking of baking cake pops, cookies, and chocolate pretzels. We are not sure if we will be only putting food that we bake into the goodies, but we know for a fact that we will be baking as much food as we can that can fit in the goody bags.
For this project, I would love to make cute little goody bags for the homeless. I would like them to be small, but yet have a small meaning. To achieve this, I will make sure to add a cute little note to each of the goody bags so that the homeless people have something to look forward to reading every day. I understand that some of them have allergies, so I will also be sure to add an ingredients list so that nothing terrifying occurs. Most likely, in these bags, my partner and I will probably add fresh baked cookies, chapstick, and some other small homebaked sweets/foods. We have not yet finalized the number of bags we want to distribute or make, but we know for fact that we want to deliver as many goody bags as we can. As part of our goal, we want to make sure that those who receive these goody bags are happy.
Hey y’all I’m Megan! For this project, I will be working in a two-person group with Jenn. We are thinking of working with food, since we are both not an expert in the culinary arts. I think that this project might not turn out to be a fail, but we will try our best.
