10 in 10
I seem to be making absolutely no progress at fundraising. I have posted and posted and posted on Facebook and Twitter and My Space, sent E-mails to hundreds of people and am now writing letters to everyone I can think of. But the only donation I have received is $40 from the sale of two of my photos at a much reduced price at our silent auction. So I have set up a new challenge for myself. I am going to run 10 miles every day for the next 10 days. I've asked everyone to simply donate just $1/mile, for just one of the days. That's only $10. I'm hoping some of my friends can afford that small amount. It might be just a small amount, but a small amount from a whole lot of people adds up to a large amount, and that is what is needed to find a cure for diseases as deadly as blood cancers. I may have to run until I drop, but I'll be back later today to record my first 10 miles of this new challenge.
