Welcome to December! It’s the official countdown to Christmas! It’s hard to believe that 2015 is so close to coming to an end. Before we know it, we will be welcoming in the new year. That said, I want to ask for your help today. It’s officially Giving Tuesday. If you are unfamiliar with giving Tuesday, it’s the first Tuesday after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It’s a day we can all come together all over the world to celebrate generosity and give.
I know I haven’t talked about it much lately, but a cause near and dear to my heart is the 26.2 with Donna. At it’s core, it’s a race weekend every February with a purpose of finishing breast cancer. The DONNA is so much more than that though. The organization is the only one of it’s kind that 100%, that’s right, 100% of your donation goes straight to the cause. DONNA strives to find a cure for breast cancer and it’s been working hard with donation dollars just to do that. 70% of your donation goes to the Mayo Clinic to find a cure for breast cancer, while 30% goes to The Donna Foundation, which helps survivors and those fighting the disease with financial assistance.
This Giving Tuesday, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the 26.2 with Donna. No matter what you are able to give, $5 or $100, every dollar counts. Your donation does MAKE A DIFFERENCE. You can also run or walk the 26.2 with Donna Full or Half Marathon (or 5k the day before) in Jacksonville, FL on February 14, 2016. Every penny of your registration fee goes straight to finishing breast cancer.
As I post this blog, I’ve raised $70 for the cause. I’d love to hit $250 by the end of Giving Tuesday. Thank you for helping finish breast cancer! You can donate here.
