BENEFITING: Save the Children
EVENT DATE: Mar 20, 2011
I'm not a runner, BUT I'm running the LA Marathon.... something I've wanted to do before I turned 30. Anyway, that's not the important thing.
By now we've all heard about the quake off the coast of Japan. Devastating to say the least. Hundreds of thousands of folks have been displaced from their homes, and are in need of some basic necessities. I couldn't help but think of the children of Japan. Here's where you come in.
I received an email from the LA Marathon folks providing several opportunities to raise money for those affected in Japan. I have to admit, I usually don't go for this kind of stuff... starting my own fundraising campaign, but I felt particularly called this time.
Would you consider giving some of your hard earned dollars towards this short last minute fundraising campaign for the children of Japan? $10, $20, $100?
I can't wait for this Sunday... I'll be able to say that I ran a marathon! (less than 1% of America has run a marathon). I hope to add... "I was a part of helping the children of Japan." Please partner with me!
