I’m laying down the gauntlet to all of you. Whether you’re a friend, family, online friend, part of the CF community or just stumbled on my blog looking for pics of a Mexican fire dance or Nissan Altima (yes I can tell how you get here)…I invite you all can be part of my Cystic Fibrosis Challenge.
Here’s the deal: I’m committed to raising $1,500 for the North Florida Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, as part of being named a 2009 Single Greatest Night honoree. It sounds like a lot of money, but when I realized I only need $15 donations from 100 people that seemed easy. After all, I have 2,000 followers on Twitter, 600 friends on Facebook and a big family to reach out to. Whether you can spare $5, $15 or $50 I’m asking for your help.
In return, I promise to keep you updated about the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, share my stories of being an honoree, and build awareness of CF through all my channels. If that’s not enough for you, I’m going to put everyone’s names who donates through me on the back of a running shirt that I’ll wear in every race for the rest of the year (including the half marathon I keep meaning to do). So to recap – be part of MY 100 by making a donation to CFF at http://bit.ly/ltbeyer-cff and I’ll put your name on a t-shirt, share pictures & videos with you about life as an honoree AND you get to help out a very deserving (and efficient!) non-profit in the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. (Do I even have to mention its a tax writeoff?!)
If you want to know more about the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and Single Greatest Night Jacksonville, check out the interviews I did with Liza, our CFF Special Events Director, and Stewart, who is the chairman of the ’09 SGN event. I’m actually headed to a CFF meeting tonight, so expect more stories to come.
Thanks for reading, watching and considering to help me reach the MY 100 goal for CFF. Feel free to comment here or email, DM, poke or FB message me or contact me in any other way if you have questions or a story to share. Cheers!
