I’m speaking to YOU, DFW types….


Don’t throw those old clothes away!
Don’t give them to a faceless organization!
DONATE THEM WHERE THEY WILL DO THE GREATEST GOOD!

We want your old clothes, your old shoes, funky jewelry. We will take them off your hands and find them fabulous new homes. As an added bonus, all the proceeds from your donations will go towards finding a cure for breast cancer.
To find out how YOU can help, email us at:
austin_susangkomen_fundraiser@yahoo.com

You can also reach me at my email address, gamer_geek_grrl@yahoo.com

I will be in DFW to visit the HomePlace in a couple of weeks (likely either the Thursday the 13th OR Saturday the 15th). If you have clothes, items, dollars, whatever to donate, email me and I will come and get them from you.

What is all this for, you may ask. Why am is she taking all these clothing donations?

Glad you asked…

Are you pondering what I am?

As I have mentioned, I am participating in the SKG 3-Day Walk for the Cure in November 2010.

The BFF and I have put our brains together – always a dangerous proposition! – and come up with a slew of fundraising activities. Some of them could potentially raise a great deal of dollars for the cause.

Currently, we have planned:

Bake Sale (Completed! $180 raised!>
Garage Sale
Clothing Sale
Car Wash

The Bake Sale is scheduled for the 19th of March.
The Garage Sale is currently scheduled for the 24th of April.
The Clothing Sale is currently scheduled for the 15th of May.
The Car Wash is currently scheduled for the 12th of June.

The Bake Sale was such a success that I am going to have another one sometime soon. Also in the works are a Spaghetti Dinner and a Pink Boot Drive.

Now, I have been saying/planning on doing this walk on some other person’s team. Figured I would just join a team that is already going to be out there and sign up. Or, just walk alone. But….

But.

If we can raise enough, it is possible that we could sponsor a second Walker. And that would be made of *awesome*.

So…here is my shout-out to those of you in our communities that wish to participate, join or donate. Do you want to help end breast cancer? Do you want to donate your time, your dollars, your energy to this cause? Are you interested in joining me in our own Austin-team? It will take time, effort, energy, dollars. I think we could make a huge difference. Austin is a place of caring; of holding out our hand and helping.

Email me (gamer_geek_grrl@yahoo.com), drop me a note here, contact me at my SKG page, call me, text me, reach out, help.

I could quote facts and figures at you but, the bottom line is that breast cancer kills. But we get closer to a cure every day. And everything you do helps. Let’s work together to end this awful disease.
