THE STORY:

Today, the day of the start of this fundraiser, is the day we celebrate the birth of our country.  For me, it is also the day I celebrate and remember the birth of my best friend, Leah Pinkney. Leah would be turning 29 today.

August 5th will be the 10 year anniversary of her sudden and passing. That she was taken from the world so early is a tragedy of such depths that I do not have the words to express it. She was a true force for good in the world – a bright and shining beacon of light and love. She made the lives of every single person she knew better. I want to help Leah continue to be a force for good in this world, because I lover and honor her deeply, and because her spirit will never, ever stop touching my life and I will always be better for having known, loved, and been loved by her.

On August 5th, the funds raised on this website will be donated in Leah’s name to the American Asthma Foundation. Leah’s chronic asthma is what took her from us at such a young age, and the AAFA, with help from donors like us, is working to make sure that no other lives are cut short by chronic asthma. They have outreach programs as well as research programs, all of which Leah would have supported with all her heart. Let US support them now with all our hearts, in honor of Leah.
