Posts Tagged ‘MS Walk’

Several of my friends are participating in charity walks for various organizations, and this morning I decided it was time to donate to all of them.  I had been meaning to give something for a while now, but hadn’t had a spare moment to sit down and actually make the donations.

Two of my friends are participating in TNT events – one is doing a 104-mile bike ride and the other is doing a triathlon.  I am so proud of both of them, because I know how hard it is to train for these events.  Plus, the friend that’s doing the tri said that I was her inspiration – how cool is that?  It really made me feel special to know that I influenced someone’s life like that.

Ish is participating in an Multiple Sclerosis 10K in San Francisco in April, and decided to join a team because a few of her friends have been afflicted with the disease.  I’m so proud of her for doing it, because this is going to be quite a challenge for her, physically. She has such a positive attitude about it, though, and I’m sure she’ll have no problem completing the event.

Last but not least is Lisa, from Doing It For Me.  Lisa is participating in the Toronto Weekend to End Breast Cancer, which is another amazing event.

Since I know all too well how difficult it is to raise funds in these hard economic times, I wanted to make sure to do my part to support these wonderful women.  I figured that if I could spend $100 on makeup on Monday, the least I could do today was spend $100 supporting these ladies.  It’s all about balance, after all.

So, if you’re able to, why not donate to someone who is participating in a charity event, or join one yourself?  There really is no better feeling than giving back.
