In 2001, our mother, Gwenndolyn Regina McKenzie Carter, passed away from a massive heart attract at the young age of 52 years old.
As Karyn is making her way to 50, one of the things on her Before Karyn 50 bucket list is to do a Go Red fundraising campaign for the American Heart Association during February to help support its initiative to raise awareness of the leading cause death among women.
We are kicking off the campaign with each of us donating $50 from O Christmas Socks, O Christmas Socks event we held on Facebook in December.
Our goal is to raise $500 by February 28, 2020. We figured if could get 80 of friends to donate a minimum $5 each we would be able reach our goal rather quickly.
While we know there are many worthy charities out there to which you can donate, Kris and I are asking you to support our fundraising initiative and we thank you in advance for your contribution.
