|I am sure many of you have or will be given the ALS challenge. The first video that I saw was a friend of my son's who really didn't go into the meaning and it was "very comical." I did not even really realize what the whole "campaign" was about. Then my daughter Gentry had me watch the video of the "reason"... the real person behind the story. I was crying as I watched it. I felt I needed to help in some way. I then challenged Beth and Don Kingston and Chris Potter who I love and know from Xyron.|
I always tell my children to be a leader and not a follower. I knew that I wanted to accept my challenge from my both my friends TC and Amy. I also knew that every little bit helps. So I challenged everyone on my Facebook and instagram to donate just $5.00 to the ALS cause (or one that is near and dear to them). That alone would raise over 100,000.00 to the ALS cause. I wanted to personally donate $100.00 and do the challenge.
|I know that without medical research we all can and will face horrible illnesses that have no cure. Thankfully my husband has had his stem cell transplant. This was a real blessing. This can help to save his life. How grateful I am to those who have donated and helped raise money for cancer and lymphoma research. I want to make a difference in some small way. I am so grateful for my husband and his "fighting" but weak spirit. He is really amazing!|
I am headed for the airport on my way to Long Beach, CA in a few hours. I am going to see Matt's beautiful family. I will stay with them. I am so excited to see them. I look forward to seeing everyone in my workshops today and tomorrow too. I love doing these events.
Now today is the BIG REVEAL. My brand new dies SOLD OUT in hours on HSN. Now you can get them (*very limited quantity) here....
