Do It For The Kids | #FundraisingFriday

I'm gonna admit up front that I've never done one of these fundraising walks before.  In the past, my style has been more like left-wing fomentation and rabble-rousing activism:  sitting in, shouting, and delivering petitions with theatrical flair and justified indignation.  No surprise that that was in my college days, huh?  Now that I'm headed into my mid-30s and my metabolism has changed, I'm a bit more mellow about how I stand up for what I believe.  And I DEFINITELY believe in making sure that young children of every background have access to quality medical care when suffering from catastrophic disease.  I also believe that their parents shouldn't have to worry about bills and costs.  So I'm gonna walk for St. Jude.

My bleeding heart demands it. From now until November 22nd, with my most excellent homegirl Nikia Phoenix as my team captain, I will be fundraising for the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as part of the curlBOX team, and y'all better give!  Give $5, $10, $15; give what you can.

This may be a little bit vanilla compared to the actions I usually take when I'm making a principled stand (I'm so righteous), but I'm excited nonetheless.  Standing up for what's right, helping out, and being of service are a part of who I am, and on the 22nd, I'm gonna be all that with bells on!
