I probably should have run this by soopa or another mod before posting, so if its really wrong, or bad please delete it…

If not, I’d appreate it getting a sticky for the next two days…

One of my best friends is in taking part in Walk America, which is a national fundraising walk for the March of Dimes Foundation. Their goal is to raise $500 by this weekend, and they’re currently only at $105 including my $50 which is why I’m posting this up.

I would like to ask you guys for contributions to this fundraiser: you can donate money [$1, $5, $10, $20, $1000000] by going to my personal team page: http://www.walkamerica.org/sshaw3 or you can let me know if you would be interested in being a part of my team and raising money on your own. The walk is on Sunday April 23rd and will take place in New York City around Central Park. Please keep in mind this isn’t for any prizes or anything, it’s just to raise money that’s going directly to the cause…

This is the mission statement of the group…

"Our mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality. We carry out this mission through research, community services, education and advocacy to save babies' lives. March of Dimes researchers, volunteers, educators, outreach workers and advocates work together to give all babies a fighting chance against the threats to their health: prematurity, birth defects, low birthweight.
