I am not a big fundraiser person. I believe that you give when and where can give. I don’t appreciate phone calls, door-to-door sheets, or people just walking up to you. If I could give to every organization that asked, I could but I can’t. So if you skip this post, I don’t blame you and hope you find another great one to read!
That being said, when my husband and I signed up to do the UVA Walk for Kids, we knew there was fundraising for it. We knew that we could cover the fundraising minimum ourselves so we didn’t have an issue with the request for donations.
That being said, I will make a post about our efforts. We will be walking three miles (with three kids in tow) on June 5th for the UVA Walk for Kids. The UVA Children’s Hospital is a great resource for not only this community but for children all over who come here. I am blessed that my children have not needed the intense services they offer but I know many in the community do need their services.
If you would like to donate to my campaign or my husband’s campaign, you can click either of those links. It is all through the FirstGiving.com’s site so you know I won’t take your money and run with it!
I would say we appreciate your donations but really it is the kids who use these services that appreciate it. We are just doing the walking part of it!
Thanks for considering this as a worthy cause and watch for a picture of us as we walk!!
