So I'm running the LA marathon on March 24. And I figured if I'm going to run that far, some good should come of it! I've chosen a deserving charity to receive donations from all my lovely friends. We all win...I feel loved and supported while running 26.2 miles, you feel warm and fuzzy for supporting me and a great cause at the same time, and Give One Dollar A Day gets lots of generous donations!
Give One Dollar A Day is a charitable organization founded by one of my longest and dearest friends, Amy Siegel (that's Amy + me in the photo), and two other amazing women. The organization provides direct financial support to families and children dealing with illness and poverty.
Here's what it looks like in everyday terms: You give a donation to Give One Dollar A Day, and they take that donation and pay the electric bill for a family with a child undergoing chemotherapy, so that the family can keep the lights and heat on this month. If you want to know that your donation is REALLY helping another human being, this is it!
