Down To The Wire and I Need You: Half Marathon Edition

Well everyone it's down to the wire, and I NEED you and your support NOW! I have written a couple of posts before. But now I will be bombarding you with posts until October 19, 2012.

I am running a half-marathon. The Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service Half to be exact. My goal is to raise $250 for the Heart and Stroke foundation of Manitoba. I did have a link up, however, in contact with the HSFM support it was taken down by accident and they are looking to fix it. However, my race is in 17 days people! So now what? Now I find another way to try and raise money. So here we go.

I am auctioning off 3 of my Cuddly's for each of the fundraisers I'm doing in conjunction with this half marathon. All three will have a starting bid of $15 cdn dollars. That is what they retail for. I will be paying the shipping when the highest bidder is chosen. Remember my goals everyone. $250.00 cdn for the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba; $250.00 for the kids of Kalinovka; and $100.00 for Bobby's fund. You can see to the right on my side bar where I am at goal wise. Please help me, help others.

On top of me raising this money. IF, and only if, I reach at $100 for Bobby's fund and at least $125.00 for the kids of Kalinovka for their Happy Home project I WILL dye my hair rainbow colour for race day.

Your choice: Brown & Pink or Brown & Circles

Cause: The Heart & Stroke Foundation of Manitoba (My family has had too many close calls with heart and stroke issues for me to not run and raise money).

Goal: $250.00

Starting bid: $15.00

Auction closes: October 18, 2012 (midnight)

Your choice: One of the Koala's shown here.

Cause: The kids of Kalinovka Happy Home (Link brings up the last happy home they completed for 9 lucky boys.)

Goal: $250. ($125 or more for me to dye my hair race day)

Starting bid: $15.00

Auction closes: October 18, 2012 (midnight)

Your choice: One of the Bunny's shown here.

Cause: Bobby's fund (Since money is usually all that keeps these children from having "forever families", Reeces Rainbow has a wonderful program of holding donated funds for each special child for their new families to help pay for the adoption process)

Goal: $100.00

Starting bid: $15.00

Auction closes: October 18, 2012 (midnight)

With all the fundraisers and causes in the world, I know that one more can sometimes feel like so much. I would like to thank you for at least taking the time to read my plea. I of course would love for you all to pass along this posting, bid really high and let's reach my goal together. Thank you again, my readers, my champions. I can't wait to see what we can achieve together.

**Please post in the comment section your bid and email your bid to so I can contact you with your winning bid on Oct. 19***
