Consider this a last-second plea.
Well, it’s not really last second per say, but close enough.
Our local Relay for Life is being held April 30. The event has been going for more than 10 years and is a very successful event. A few years ago, they even reached the $1 million raised mark. Pretty cool, right?
I’m no longer an active participant in the local Relay (though I do try and get up there and walk a little bit and see what they are doing), but I support it as much as I can. My mother, however, is still active in it and this year, she’s raising money again as well as being part of the organizing committee. Even more interesting, though, is that she is her own team, thus meaning she’s raising money all on her own.
I’m hoping some blogging friends and readers will see it in their hearts to donate to this team. I know I’ve donated to several people’s causes when I come across them because I believe in doing good and hope that my dollars will help as much as possible. So, if you read this and you can donate – I’d appreciate whatever you can give.
Anyway, her goal was $500 (which, for the record, she’s already made). However, it would be awesome to see her reach $1,000. She’s made that level the past few years, so hopefully she can do it again. The website show’s she’s at $850 right now, so I think it’s definitely doable. I’d love to see her get even higher.

The Relay for Life is one of the biggest fundraisers for the American Cancer Society each year. I’m sure most who will read this have been affected in one way or another by cancer, be it yourself or somebody you know. So, if you can, please consider donating.
I appreciate anything you can give!
