The Great Fundraising Act

Time out from regularly scheduled programming for an announcement.  I know there are probably many of you who have read Susan’s blog – The Great Balancing Act.  If not, you should.  She is an excellent writer.

Susan and I “met” a couple years ago.  We were both training for our first triathlon that occurred at about the same time, so it was fun to kind of virtually train with someone.  Susan has always been very supportive and her blog has evolved a lot over time.

She has had a rough 2011 so far with a broken elbow and now has a diagnosis of cancer – stage II Hodgkin’s lymphoma – and has been in the hospital for the last few weeks, now awaiting chemo.  She just recently started her job and had not been set up with insurance yet.  Susan also was a personal trainer and in her 20s, so it shows that even those that live the healthiest of lives are not immune to illness.

When Janetha emailed a lot of us about a fundraiser – I knew I would be on board right away.  This is going to be a giant auction with over 150 items! How awesome is that?  The auction will be on July 25th, so we are spreading the word out there.

Yours truly will be donating 2 bags of my roasted coffee to one lucky bidder 😀  I am also willing to ship to anywhere in the world, so anyone can bid on my item.

The blogging community really has such a large heart and can give you faith in humanity.

So save the date – the auction will be full of all of blogland’s favorite things on July 25th!

Be Sociable, Share!

    Lori – I keep reading about this – such an amazing group of bloggers out there! I sent a not to Susan on ACOR.org which is a great cancer support site that helped me when my mom got sick & eventually passed. They have separate support groups for almost every cancer out there.

    Thx for sharing like the others!

    What a wonderful idea! I don’t always comment, but still love reading every one of your posts and remain envious of your ability to hop on your bike and go. I would be in heaven if I lived in a place where I just ride to those cool looking little coffee shops and bagel places. One of these days I’m headed that way to see for myself. And you better believe my bike will be with me. Can’t keep up with you, but I could take the short way!! LOL!

    BTW, I mentioned you and your blog in my post today. It was nice things, I promise!!
