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…

Breast Cancer Sucks

Hey guys — I was told by a little bird that I had not posted my donation page for the Walk for the Cure. I thought I had but just in case, here ’tis: Bon’s Page

November 5 – 7, 2010
I will be walking 60 miles over the course of 3 days; 20 miles a day. I will be camping out at night with the thousands of other participants who will be making the same walk.

Every walker participating is required to raise $2,300. Many raise far more than that. All of the net proceeds of the donations are invested into research, community outreach programs, education, hospice care, clinics.

I feel very strongly about this cause. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. One in eight of our mothers, daughters, sisters, grandmothers, friends. Breast cancer kills. I don’t want anyone I care about to be taken from me because they didn’t have the resources, didn’t know how to check, or a newly researched medicine wasn’t available.

So, here’s how you can be part of this too. You can support me and the cause by making a donation. Follow the link above to visit my personal fund-raising Web page and make a donation. If you don’t want to give online, you can download and print a donation form from that page to send in a donation via mail. Another thought is to ask your employer if they would consider making a matching gift to your donation – doubling your money in one swoop!

It’s going to be tough to fit fund-raising and training into my schedule but I know I can do it. I’m going to raise that $2,300 for the cause. Maybe the money I raise will save someone I love.
