Raising Funds and Awareness

Gosh, last post was from the last school holidays and now it's that time of the year again! How fast has it gone! So close to Christmas. Scary!

Anyway, I am getting thru my bucket list of funruns for the year, 3 more to go! While I was entering one run, it asked if I wanted to run for a cause chosen by them, all I have to do is set up a profile and share it around to get donations. Sure! Sounds good to me! But then I decided I would rather choose my own charity to run for, so I have chosen The Dreamchaser Foundation. Read more about their amazing and heartbreaking story here

Not only do I want to fundraise for the Foundation but also spread the word on Blood and Bone Marrow Donations. Every day people are relying on others for their very kind donations, it helps save so many lives. I have a friend who is fighting Leukemia for the second time, this time he is needing Bone Marrow transfer, and thankfully, he has a match, coming all the way from Germany! Yes, the other side of the world! This is because there aren't enough on the registry here in NZ!

My goal is to raise at least $500, but if I get the word out with everyones help I know we can double that! So please, help me out! Pass it on! I have a Facebook page set up here and it will link you to my online fundraising page. Thank you so much in advance!
