Overwhelming Support

Quote of the Day
Don't be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.
            -- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Well, it has only been 2 days since I have announced my intention to participate in the 2011 World's Greatest Shave for the Leukaemia Foundation, but I have received an overwhelming amount of support in that time.

I am actually quite moved by the responses I have been getting, here, on Facebook, on online forums, and in real life.  I have had offers for raffle prizes, people offering to sell fundraising chocolates, people ready to donate, and just a general buzz that what I am doing is the right thing, even though it is as scary as crap...  LOL

You will be hearing lots about this in the coming months. I am really hoping we can raise the $5000. Not that I want to actually shave my head, but because the funds are so desperately needed. If anyone is a fundraising wizz and wants to help out, please let me know. I will take all the help I can get!

100 Days of Gratitude - Day 11
I am grateful that the people that are in my life are all such amazing supportive people, who are ready to do anything they can to help out. I truly am surrounded by wonderful people.

Hi you have inspired me to sign up to ride in the 'Gear up Girl' ride this Sunday! And I even got to go and purchase a new bike I have been wanting for some months!

I am doing the 35km, but might be able to spot you in the crowd...

Good Luck with your ride
