My 15 Year High School Reunion is Saturday…

This Saturday will be a celebration of my 15 year High School Reunion. I have been working with a classmate on planning the event and offering ideas. This will not be a typical reunion as it is also a fund raiser for another Classmate, Becky, who’s family has been going through a very difficult battle with Cancer. First Becky had cancer and then her husband Mike got cancer. Mike has had more treatments than I could ever count and on top of that his Cancer has gone away only to come back stronger and nastier than before. I’ve been reading the family journal and I can’t imagine how difficult this has been for the Machinski family.

One of the goals I have for the 15 year reunion was to sell 100 calendars to raise $200.00 for the family. With Each calendar sold I would make $2.97, I was going to use the $0.97 to buy an iPod for the silent auction that we are having during the Reunion. I’ve sold 12 calendars. I’ve also gotten $79.00 in donations. I haven’t reached my goal and I’m not sure where to turn. The reunion is this coming Saturday and I would like any and all help from my readers to help me raise that last $290.00 for the Machinski family. Becky and Mike will be at the reunion and I don’t want to disappoint them with failure.

How can you, my great readers help? You can write a post directing people to https://benspark.com/2008calendar.html Talk about how the money will be used and how it will benefit the Machinski Family. Please help. Thank you.

I would like to point out great linky love to Joana of Nanashi-Inc who gave me a free ad on her sidebar out of the blue. Thanks so much Joana.

Going Pink for October

You might have noticed a bit of a color change around here. I decided to go Pink for October. Breast Cancer awareness is important to me as well as to Allison. We decided to get out blogs into a pink theme for the month of October. I learned about this project through Joana of Nanashi-Inc.net. So if you want to show your support for Breast Cancer Awareness for the month of October set your theme to Pink.

Even though it is Breast Cancer awareness month, I have a project of my own to help raise money for a family whose whole lives has been affected by Cancer. I created a 2008 Photo-A-Day Calendar and I am giving 2/3 of the profits to the Machinski Family. My goal is to sell 100 calendars before November 24th and raise $200.00 to give to the Machinski family. Becky Machinski was a classmate of mine in High School and both she and her husband have both battled Cancer. Becky’s Cancer is gone but her husband Mike is still battling Cancer and it has depleted their savings. I can’t imagine how tough this has been for them but they are a strong couple with three beautiful little girls. You can see the love that they have for each other and they are working very hard to stay positive and to stay financially above water. So during the month of October while you go Pink think about maybe helping donate to the Machinskis by buying a 2008 Photo-A-Day calendar or donating directly through my PayPal donation button specifically created for the money I am donating to the Machinskis.
