WALKING FOR A CAUSE...AND SOMETIMES JUST BECAUSE

DONATE & MAYBE WIN A KINDLE!

I'm coming into the last push for this; y'all know I'm walking in the Susan G. Komen 3 Day Walk for the Cure starting October 1st. It's 60 miles over 3 days, all to raise money for breast cancer research and treatment. I'm training my ass off (hopefully in some literal terms) in order to manage it, and I need donors.

Yep, I need your money. And you have a chance at winning a shiny new Amazon Kindle. Maybe even more, if I can cough up another prize or two, but if you donate by 9:59 P.M. on July 15, 2010, you're eligible to win the Kindle. (Winner will be selected around 10 pm on the 15th, by random number generator.) For every $5 you donate, you get a chance to win. Donate $10, you get 2 chances. $20, you get 4. And on and on.


My goal is $2300 and I'm still nearly a grand away from reaching that.

The bigger picture, though, is that the Susan G. Komen Foundation does incredible things for women, and by tackling this walk, we can help raise the funds that keep the foundation going. And by donating to my effort, you have a chance at getting the leading e-reader on the market. Don't want it? If you win, sell it! Pop that sucker up on eBay and it'll be gone in ten minutes! You could invest five bucks and turn it into a hundred.

Don't make me beg. Though, I will if it'll work.


Please?
I asked nicely.
 Have I told you lately that you're my favorite person? You are, you know you are.

Keep checking in here to see my progress...Where I didn't think I'd ever walk more than 3 miles without crying, I'm doing up to 12 now...I will be ready for this walk. If you know me, you know why being able to do this is significant. So chuck some bucks my way, and I will love you forever.
