In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month (October), I'm starting my own fundraiser for a great cause!! Each year the YWCA of Central Alabama holds "Santa's Workshop" to help battered women and children have a better Christmas.

What I've decided to do is donate $1 for each mile I walk between now and December 9, 2010 (the deadline for making donations to the Workshop!) I figure that way, I get exercise and kids get Christmas presents!! Is there a better way to make a difference?

If you would like to match my donation (weekly, monthly or net), please get in touch under the "Contact Us" page at my website ( All donations to the YWCA are tax-deductible so it's a great way to get a write-off for FY 2010!

Note: There isn't a way to donate specifically to "Santa's Workshop" through Crowdrise. So if you make a donation here it will go to the YWCA of Central Alabama's general fund...which I'm sure they'll appreciate! However, if you donate directly through the YWCA's website ( you can earmark it for "Santa's Workshop" if you'd like.
