I know I always ask for donations for The 3 Day and don’t worry — that’s coming, too.
I just got an email today from my third cousin? Fourth cousin? I have no clue. In any case, my great aunt (my favorite great aunt) forwarded an email from Brooke, who is … 7, 8, 9, 10? (I’ve met her once. Lay off.)
This is the email:
We only have one heart! I want to take care of mine and help you take care of yours too! This year my school is participating in Jump Rope for Heart and supporting the American Heart Association by raising money to save lives.
During, Jump Rope For Heart I will learn about taking care of my heart. Heart disease can happen to anyone so it’s really important to be physically active and eat healthy.
Help me fix a broken heart. Will you make a donation? It’s fast and easy to do on my personal Web page! Just use the link below.
To make a donation online, visit my personal page.
While there you can also meet some of the kids we can help!
Thanks for taking care of hearts that need our help!
I cut and paste that, because you know I’m not writing in red Comic Sans. But little kids can, so it’s okay!
She has a fundraising goal of $50. I donated $5. She’s donated $5 and so has her grandma (my great favorite great aunt). Do you know that she would probably do that little girl squeal and who knows what else if she got to $50? If you skipped your Starbucks today or would skip it tomorrow, you could totally find an extra five bucks to throw this kid’s way. You can donate by clicking here. And call it your good deed of the day.
