Charity-o-Rama for February 19, 2007!

Posted by Filed Under: Charity & Fundraising

Time for this week’s charity roundup! If you’re looking for some worthy causes, you’ve come to the right place.

First up: Layla, of Nonplussed (you know, that state of being at a loss as to what to say, think, or do. I’m very familiar with this state).

Layla is training with the The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and in preparation for the San Diego Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon
on June 3rd, and is raising $5,000. Help her out!


Siblings Robyn and Rachel, of Tri to End Homelessness are dedicating their 2007 triathlon season to making a change in their community:

Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality.
– Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Rachel and Robyn say:

This year, we’ll be training and racing for a purpose beyond PRs and age-group rankings. Throughout the 2007 season, we’ll be raising awareness about the reality of homelessness in our hometown and raising money for Genesis Home – a shelter for homeless families in Durham, North Carolina. Our duals goals are to (1) raise $2,500 by our first race of the season: the Valdese Sprint on April 14 and (2) successfully complete our first international distance race: the Pinehurst Tri on October 6.

Donate to their cause here (list “Tri to End Homelessness” in the “Payment For” section).
