|I can't help it.|
I love the photo!
I try to do one fundraising charity walk a year. This year it seems especially important, as we delve deeper into All Things J-man. And this year, moreso than many other years, the funding for research and resources for special needs kiddos is remarkably thin. So this year I have decided to support the Walk Now for Autism Speaks by building our Team J-man and (hopefully) convincing some of you to consider sponsoring our team!
Why, you ask?? Well, if you read this blog, you probably already know why. J-man and other children like him remain a mystery for many families and professionals. Providing support, whether it is through well-done research or through providing support services to families, is vitally important for our kids (and our sanity). And really, in this world right now, the only way that support can be given is through your generous nature.
How can *I* help, you ask???
Ahhh... there are so many ways. First, go find your calendar and your wallet. Don't worry, I will wait.
*insert annoying musak soundtrack*
First Option: Join Team J-man on Saturday, September 24th 2011 for the Walk Now for Autism Speaks at the Mall of America in the Twin Cities!
If you join us, you can have a lot of super-cool fun and help raise both funds and awareness!! Plus, I will make cookies! If I get a least 10 walkers to join me, we get our own special area just to hang out and look super-cool. AND you can make your own very special page on our Team J-man site. So help us fund raise and come window shopping!!!
Second Option: Not much of a walker? That's ok! You can help with a donation to my own Team J-man page.
Obviously donations with lots of zeros would be great, but I would also be thrilled with single digit donations.. So show us some love!!!
Third Option: Pass the word about Team J-man! Direct people to our blog so they can see our story and be inspired (or just amused). Or to our fundraising pages. Just let people know and schmooze for us a bit!!! And, let's face it, for a very worthy cause.
Questions? Just let me know!!!
