I *Heart* Joy Like BR80 2: Use your cushion monies to change the frickin' world

Back in July, I introduced you to I Heart Joy Like BR80. If you're not familiar with the story, or the lives just four quarters could change,
CLICK HERE 
AND HERE
AND HERE
AND FINALLY, HERE.

If you're tired of reading, I could babble on about whatever I want and you'd never know. Like how the hubs said "I wonder how many field mice a barn cat eats..." Ooohhh but you came for a contest? Alright then. I guess his random-isms can wait. This summer, we made a ripple in the water. This time, let's make a wave. Join me for class, won't you? A little math:
  • If every one of you, my dear followers friends, can dig up enough loose change to equal $1, we will have raised $357 for women, children and families in need.
  • If every one of you, my lovely followers friends, gives up one meal out this week to equal $5, we will have raised $1785 for women, children and families in need.
  • If every one of you, my sweet followers friends, can spare $10, we will have raised $3570 for women, children and families in need.
I've made my goal $357, because I truly believe if we work together, $1 turns into a brand new beginning for the women, children and families of Ghana, West Africa. With that in mind...
    INTRODUCING...






    So you see, friends, there's always more ways to help people. Because we're all people, dudes. If you have any questions about anything, leave a comment or email me directly.

    I can't donate today, but I'm definitely buying a shirt soon, and I will SO be blogging about it!

    Stina Lindenblatt said...

    Great idea, except we're donating to our local rape crisis center and the kids' helpline. The first idea was inspired by the Speak ban controversy. The second due to your recent walk to prevent suicide. So without realizing it, you benefitted a lot of kids in my area. ;)

    You know I got your back baby.

    Be on the look out for my emails. That's right that is plural. But I have to add this to my calendar to do tonight. Okay, I don't but I need to peruse the t selection.

    Rock on Candy girl.

    This is such a great cause, and you have such an enormous heart! The whole African continent has a special place in mine, since I was a Peace Corps volunteer in central Africa. I saw firsthand how eager Africans are to work, so improve themselves, and to prosper despite incredible odds. I'll email you the PayPal receipt I just received, and I'm adding your banner to my blog and tweeting your link. Rock on, sister! Fingers crossed that you surpass your goal!

    ((hugs)) Nicole

    Carolyn V. said...

    I think I can do $1! I'm so impressed with your willingness to help. It's so cool. =)

    Jackee said...

    Oh, man, Candace! I just came back from a conference where a woman refugee from Sierra Leone talked about how a simple bar of soap and a toothbrush changed her life during the 1997 civil war. Amazing what we can do with a buck or two when we stop to think about someone other than ourselves. :o)

    I loved the Part I and I'll definitely be back to participate in Part II!

    Thanks,
    Jackee
