Cristina Saileanu-Tuckness


Have you ever thought how different your life would be if you couldn't read? You wouldn't be reading this sagacious description of my project right now. Take a few moments, and think about what your life would be like with no literacy skills. No, really. Do it now.

Okay, hope that was an eye-opening moment that made you instantly decide to donate to my cause. Not convinced yet? Fine. Keep reading (because you're lucky enough to know how.)

Ever since I read Forrest Gump by Winston Groom, I decided that running without a cause would be the ultimate way to show how much I care about something. Therefore, I'm running the Morgan Hill Half Marathon in November 2010 to raise money for Room to Read Girls' Education Program. Will you help me reach my goal of $500?

If you do, you might get a personalized thank-you email from me, which may or may not include photos of my epic journey to reach the finish line. You also get bragging rights that you single-handedly raised the global education standards. Last but not least, your donation is tax-deductible. So, what are you waiting for? Donate your money either on crowdrise or Room to Read:

Thank you and see you at the finish line :)
