Steptember is just around the corner, benefitting the Cerebral Palsy Association of BC, one of my personal favourites. But I'm not participating this year...
Not because I need to take a break from activity. Not because I no longer support these causes. But because I want to give YOU a break.
In the past, I have been unbelievably lucky and successful in my fundraising efforts. Be it cancer, CP, Variety, or the Children's Health Foundation - all charities near and dear to my heart - people answer the call when I ask. So I really want to keep it that way.
I don't want to exhaust all of you - my fundraising support circle. You all have charities that are important to you as well, and most of us do not have endless supplies of money with which to donate to every charity that asks us. So one day, in likely the not too distant future, I will ask you to give generously again. But for today at least, you're off the hook from my end.
In the mean time, go be charitable with your hearts and all the causes that fill them. Being charitable does not always require your credit card :)
