Hi, everyone! It's that time of year again: Me getting older and begging you to pay for it - literally!
On April 3rd, I will turn (gulp, deep breath) 38 years old, and as ever, my birthday wish is for you to support the great work of The Summer Hope Foundation, the non-profit organization I began 17 (!!!) years ago to help support the fight against cancer.
I'm getting a bit of a late start this year, and yet my 38th Birthday Wish is somewhat more pressing. The Hope Package is The Summer Hope Foundation's signature program (run with warmth and wonder by my sister, Lola), where we send personalized care pacakges to cancer patients. Over the past year, the demand for this program has grown exponentially and donations towards my Birthday Wish will help us keep up with demand for this program, a cornerstone of our mission to provide moments of hope to cancer patients and their families.
Last year, you all blew me away with your support by helping me raise over $4,500, which was record-shattering! Can I match or beat that this year? I don't know, but you can bet that I will clog your social media feeds trying!
