So, I've not been nearly as good at shilling as [livejournal.com profile] webqatch over there, but well I'm not as good at this and not nearly as practiced.

However, I'm still doing the walk. What that means, in case you missed it the first go-round is that in April I'm going to be walking a marathon and a half. That's the Avon 2 day walk for Breast Cancer. (I always feel the need to point out, it's against breast cancer, for breast cancer research.)

Regardless, I've got a lot of money to raise before then. I'm at about 600, that's a third of the amount I've got to raise. So, I'm asking my friends. If you can spare a dollar, ten dollars or a hundred dollars, please toss it to my avon fundraising. If you'd rather not donate on-line let me know, I'll give you a paper form.

Thanks guys.

The only way to get the funding is to ask, as you are. Good ol' webqatch (look! I spelled it right!) is downright shameless about it, and willing to embarrass himself while at it--thus the amazingness of his donations. (love ya, webbie!)

So ask, ask, ask. Tell EVERYONE you know or meet what your're doing. While walking, I told strangers in elevators, in long lines, everywhere. Once in a while someone would just hand over a five or a twenty, along with their story of who they knew that had suffered or recovered from this awful disease. When at a conference a year or two later I ran into someone walking for the same walk in a different city, who was selling fimo pins she made herself, I handed over a twenty. I didn't know her from Eve, but she was doing what I had done.

So ask, and tell everyone what you are doing. You're doing great so far, and will make it.
