A Walk in the Park

David and I have done lots of talking about what more we can do to help others while teaching Kirstyn valuable lessons and well, while having some fun. I think we found the perfect event for our family to participate! On Sept 6th we will be part of Six Flags "A Walk In The Park" to raise money to cure kids cancer! I am excited to be walking and trying to raise some money and I also have to say that I am very thankful that I am not walking for any specific child, just for all of the children that are affected by this horrible disease!

Now, David and I tend to be very competitive when we make up our minds to do something like this... See, since David is also walking, he is supposed to raise money too. We now have a little contest going to see if I can get more $$$ from the blogging world or if he can get more money from his many friends on Facebook and MySpace. Please help me win!!! You can support me by making a secure online donation using your credit card. From my page, click one of the 'Sponsor Me' buttons to make your gift. For donations of five dollars or more, you will have a chance to win one of twelve trips to Cabo San Lucas courtesy of Worldmark by Wyndham.

If you are interested in joining me for "A Walk In The Park", or for more information about this event, Cure Kids Cancer and Six Flags Friends, please visit their website. The walk is on Sept 6th so stay tuned to learn how much we raise as a family and of course there will be pictures of us at the walk!

If you donate ANY amount of $$$, leave me a comment and I will put you in a drawing to win a hardback copy of my favorite Christian fiction book!

Also, would you consider mentioning this GREAT cause on your blog and linking back to my donation website so that I can prove to my husband that the blogging community is much stronger and more generous than his list of "friends"!

That's beautiful! I always wanted to start a foundation to help sick children. Hopefully one day it will happen.
