If Girls Ran the World Update
I am also stoked that thanks to a wonderful supporter, Jeremy, I have already raised $43.76 of my $250 goal. That is WAY cool but I still have a ways to go and need your help to get there.
I am raising money for Save the Children.
From their website, Save the Children "invests in childhood – every day, in times of crisis and for our future. In the United States and around the world, we give children a healthy start, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. By transforming children's lives now, we change the course of their future and ours."
They operate in 120 countries, providing support for health, education, protection, disaster relief and so much more. This fit well with my desire to help the whole world....to extend my corporal acts of mercy to all the corners of the Earth.
I am also committed to running 125 miles in October so you can envision it as a sponsorship of $2 per mile. If I raise more than $250, I will run more! How about that?!
The bulk of my running will be done on my treadmill at home but I am hoping to hit the roads some with darling daughter now that she is falling in love with cross country running....although I may need to bribe her with a trip to the coffee house afterwards to get a cup of coffee for me and a nice fresh baked pastry for her. Hey, girls gotta have fun!
But I also am teaching her about charity through the gently used items we donate, contributions to charities, Med Packs, Action Packs, and I am thinking we need to do a "penny jar" with all October contributions going to this cause.
I love running for a cause. Won't you donate today? Every little bit helps! Thank you and may God bless you.
Daily Gratitude: I am thankful for Jeremy's donation and for yours!
Daily Bible Verse: What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. ~ James 2:14-26
