PSA: Blog For a Cure

I'd like to interrupt this regularly scheduled program to bring you this important announcement. Lani from Who Knew? Reviews is hosting an online fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). She has turned it into a virtual blog party - the chance to connect with new bloggers and win some great prizes while contributing to a charitable cause. Here is her story:
A beloved family member of mine was recently diagnosed with non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. She is a young, healthy mom with a beautiful daughter, and her life, as well as her entire family's life, has been completely turned upside down by this aggressive and devastating disease. I can't imagine what it must feel like to fight for your life, can you?

There is nothing I can do to directly help her situation, but what I can do is use my time and energy to help raise money to fund the lifesaving research that has caused the survival rates to continually rise in the last few decades. I am a stay at home mom of 22 month old triplets, and I don't exactly have a lot of resources, so I have chosen to participate in Team In Training, a program in which I will raise money, while training for my FIRST marathon. I am calling on all of you, to help me raise the money that I need (a minimum of $2,400.00).
Times are tight in my house and I'm sure they are in yours as well. But the minimum donation is only $1! If you can spare one dollar, you will get more exposure for your blog and one entry into each and every giveaway they have (you must still leave a comment for the ones you wish to enter). And every dollar above $1 will earn you one more entry into a giveaway of your choice. So, it will not only benefit those in need but the benevolent giver as well!

To find out more information on this event, please visit Who Knew? Reviews or to make a donation please visit Lani's Team In Training Page. See you there!
