More specifically, this year, I've been blessed with another year of good health, great friends, loving family, career opportunities, endless inspiration and more blessings than I deserve. Many are not so fortunate. It is for this very reason that I've chosen to donate my birthday in support of a worthwhile cause and make it mean something! I have recently been selected to participate as a bachelorette in Deliver the Dream's Date Auction, occurring later this month, and am looking for donations to fund my date package so that I may raise as much money as possible or this worthwhile cause. All proceeds from the evening directly fund Deliver the Dream's specialized Family Retreat Program that serves families living with cancer, multiple sclerosis, autism, HIV/AIDS, cerebral palsy and other life changing illnesses and crises. Should you find it in your heart to donate (ANYTHING HELPS) I assure you that your donation will beyond bless countless lives and is much appreciated!
