I am doing something I don’t normally do on my blog. But they say you should use what you have for the good of this world, so I decided to go ahead and do it.
This weekend, I am joining several of my crafty friends for the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes. Thanks to my friend Jana, we have formed a little team and look forward to having the opportunity to chat and do some good at the same time. When I was telling Colin about it, he asked if he could join us.
Of course my heart was happy to hear him want to do this. But what makes it even better is the reason why he wants to do it. See, Colin is extremely close to my brother, Mike…
Mike was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes at the age of 27. It is an unfair disease (that usually starts with kids). So very unfair. (If you want learn more about living with juvenile diabetes, please check out my friend Kristina’s blog. Her young daughter has it and her blog shares helpful info. Oh, and since posting this, my brother, too, has decided to walk!)
Colin is walking to earn money for the Juventile Diabetes Research Fund. If you have time and a tiny bit of extra cash, I hope you will consider donating. You can pay directly on the website HERE – the money goes direct to them.
Please know we get nothing out of this – there is no reward or competition. I just want Colin to really feel that high you get when you do a lot of good for others.
Thanks for considering. Big hugs all around.
(And I will be back with a crafty post early tomorrow morning.)
