Because it's my 5-year anniversary, I've already committed to raising $1,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in the Light the Night Walk in September. The Avon walk is another $1,800, but at least that's not until June 2011. At any rate, I figure it's never too early to start fund-raising, especially with me and Dave raising $1,800 each.
I've decided to do little things here and there, such as a weekly bake sale at work, but the big push is going to be a fundraising incentive with recipe booklets that I'm going to print up. If you donate $50 to either cause (to me or Dave), I will give you a recipe booklet full of my favorite and most epic recipes of all time. (Red for Light the Night, pink for Avon 2-day.) Each book will have around 50-60 recipes. I'm currently typing them up, and I'll have the books printed soon. So far I've gotten through Appetizers, Drinks, Main Courses, and I'm partway through Vegetables and Sides. And yes, there is an amazing dessert section.
If you would like to donate to either of my walks, please click these links to find my pages:
- Light the Night Walk, benefits research for (and survivors of) leukemia & lymphoma
- Avon 2-day Walk for Breast Cancer, benefits research for (and survivors of) breast cancer
I'll keep posting and basically annoying the bejeesus out of everyone until I reach my goals, so don't worry, this will hardly be your last opportunity, but help me off to a great start!
