Help me pay it forward
If you are a subscriber to this blog, or just an avid reader of it you know that what I do is not for myself. I do what I do, my podcast, my blog, speaking etc. to help others. Its what I love to do is pay it forward.
So I am fundraising, Something I am admittedly terrible at, for a good cause, the Stupid Cancer organization, also known as I2Y or the I'm too Young for this Foundation. Yes I have written praises about the group several times before, something I only do if I believe in an organization.
When I was going through treatment I responded to a post requesting guest bloggers. I guess Matt Zachary, the founder, liked my snarkyness because I was one of the bloggers that he picked. Ultimately Matt and the organization helped me find my voice through writing, which eventually led to my podcast.
So I sing nothing but praises for Stupid Cancer (well not literally, no one wants to hear me sing.)
I was fortunate to go to the OMG stupid cancer summit in NYC last year, and even blogged about it on here.
It was an amazing event.
Now I am asking for your help.
I know times are tough.
The economy sucks.
I was just at coinstar the other day cashing in the coins I had saved from my part time barista job.
But consider this:
A minimum tax deductible donation of $10 will help change a young adult survivors life.
$10 bucks.. You could skip two lattes this week. You wont miss it, and you will pay it forward
Someone like me, who felt so lost, so alone, thinking why did I get cancer? Isn't this some old person's disease?
Its not a disease for someone who is healthy, athletic and in the prime of their life.
Sadlly though, it was.
Please donate to my fundraising page.
Help me help others
Pay it forward.
No one should ever face cancer alone.
With your help, no one will.
