I have a wonderful friend who lives on my street. She's one of the most giving people I have ever met. She also happens to be head of the Ottawa branch of the Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation, which helps improve the lives of seriously ill children and their families. Knowing this person so well, I can see how much of herself she puts into her work. She cares deeply about the people she works with, and always has a little something up her sleeve to bring delight to all.
Each August, one of the Foundation's most important fundraising events takes place: it's called the Dreamwalk. I took part last year and am going to do so again this year. I managed to raise several hundred dollars last year, but hope to do even better this time around. My husband and I are even planning to give a large donation ourselves, but are still discussing how big to make it. Suffice it to say that it should be over $100.
If you'd like to help me out in raising money for this event, you can do so securely with a credit card at my personal fundraising page.
Thanks for any help you can give, and wish me luck in raising as much money as I can for Starlight!
--- UPDATE: We donated $300. Woohoo! Hope you can help too!
