In the continuation of my blogging for a cause series, I have to share the overwhelming feelings that have surged this week.
When I initially signed up to #Bravetheshave for St. Baldrick's I had to set a fundraising goal. When I chose this number I thought carefully about what I thought I could raise, what the people I know would be able to donate and I decided on $1000. I thought that this would be a difficult number to reach, that it would take me the 6 weeks to get there; then I reached that goal in one week!
Humbled, that was the overwhelming feeling inside of me that I was connected to so many generous souls that made my goal a reality in only one week. At that moment I could have simply stopped, and been complacent with reaching that starting goal. However, this is a cause that I believe in and if I could raise that much in one week... how much could I raise in the remaining five. So I raised the goal and started working towards making a bigger impact, to make the golden locks on my head that will be shaved on March 14th worth more. So now I am reaching out, reaching further to raise more money for this worthy cause. Won't you be a part of this journey? Even a few dollars can make a difference!
