After hearing from certain people and thinking it over, I have decided to focus on raising the money and giving it to only these four causes;
cancer, stroke, addiction, and depression.
I’ve been trying to hit too many birds with one stone (what else is new) and accomplish too much at once and I understand how this may look, how it may reflect negatively on me, and muddle the message.
Even though this campaign is live, its only been up for a couple of days. Very few people know about it. Only 70 people have seen this page, two people have graciously donated, and most of my family and friends have ignored me (which is okay, its gives me a lot of fuel and pushes me to follow my heart that much more – so I thank you).
I’ve been thinking about this and planning in my head for 3 years, from the time I was laying in bed recovering from cancer, that I’m going to do something when I’m well, and I’m following through on that promise to myself. This is what’s in my heart and all the people that are trying to stop me and the rest that are ignoring me – I love it – it encourages me in a different way but just as much and even more than the people who have reached out to me in support. So I thank you. You have no idea how much strength and direction it gives me.
Every door that closes points you in the direction of the ones that will open and helps to make you reach deeper and become the person you’re supposed to be.
