Helping Others

On one of my favorite blogs, Bloggy Gossip, I read about this.

Her Bad Mother was challenging all bloggers to write about a cause they are passionate about. Some way that we as bloggers can make a difference! I read about this before our move and was already signed up for The Alzheimer's Association's Memory Walk and knew that I needed to share all of this information with you. Donations are not necessary, but would be appreciated.

If nothing else, please click on the following links and learn a little about why I'm so passionate about this cause, and how you can help.

So here is my post on a cause I am passionate about. Please read it...and again, please visit the links.

As you may or may not know I have two loved ones who have been affected by Alzheimer's Disease. Because I have seen the devastating effects of this disease firsthand I would like to do my part by participating in the Alzheimer's Association's Memory Walk.

Proceeds from the Memory Walk go directly to fund local programs and services designed to improve the lives of those affected by Alzheimer's.

Please help me make a difference by supporting me with a donation as I walk in the annual Alzheimer's Association Memory Walk.

By clicking on the link above, you will learn more specifically why I'm walking and who it's for. And you'll get to see a picture of my beautful grandma who was my hero. I loved her dearly and seeing her deteriorate was the most heartbreaking thing I have ever gone through in my life. (She's the grandma mentioned in this post.)

If you have a cause that you are passionate about. Write a post and put it out there for everyone to see!!

What a great cause! I'm sorry that you had to find out first hand how horrible that disease could be. What a shame that you had to lose 2 loved ones to that :(

I wish you luck on your walk, and wish I could help out and donate.

No donations are necessary!! I just wanted to get the word out about it and if by chance I got a donation or two, all the better! But, I'm not expecting it!

Thanks for your post and concern!

I'm so glad that you wrote about this, and about your walk. Can I add your post to the Changing The World list?
