Day 4: Helped Promote Someone Who is Trying to Help Others
I started this journey with the hope that others might see what I am doing and perform their own RAKs or help others in need. I also wanted to make a point to promote people who are making a difference, raise awareness for certain charities, and to show how easy it is for one person or act to have an impact. The other day I received an email from a friend who, for the 5th straight year, is participating in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. By participating in these walks, she has been able to raise a significant amount of money for breast cancer research. It is people like her, through these types of efforts, that can help find a way to finally eradicate this terrible disease. I don't intend to come on here every day and ask you all for money, but if you can join me in donating even a small amount, I know it will truly be appreciated. So if you get the opportunity, please visit her personal page here.
