Yesterday was a day of celebration! I reached my $1,800.00 goal for fund raising for my Avon Walk for breast cancer, which I will participate in on May 1-2, 2010. This only took me 2 months to accomplish and I could not have done it without the wondferful support of friends and family and strangers. Yes, even strangers!
A few months ago I met a woman in a support group at our local hospital. She recently contacted me saying that she wanted to help me with my fund raising by holding an in home party for Tastefully Simple, which is a company that offers things like dip mixes and soup starters, etc. I agreed and together we invited more than 100 people to attend. Needless to say, the event was a HUGE success and the hostess and consultant donated 100% of their proceeds to my walk! Over $425! This put me over the top of my goal and now I am focusing on helping my son Curtis and his girlfriend reach their goals. We will be walking together this spring.
At this time of holiday celebrations, I am reminded that there are people in this world who are selfless and generous and have given from their hearts for the good of someone they barely know. I am humbled and grateful, and I know that what often seems impossible, is a miracle in the making if we just believe! This amount of money seemed impossible to me 3 months ago, but I had faith that because I was determined, it would happen and IT DID!
