Will Walk for Boobs!

I’ve been talking about this for a while now, but it happens in just over a month. November 9-11, I’m going to be walking 60 miles for breast cancer in the San Diego Breast Cancer 3-Day, benefiting Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the National Philanthropic Trust.

This year will be my 3rd year participating. In 2005, I walked 60 miles in Tampa, Florida. In 2006, I worked 4 days as a camp volunteer in Boston, Massachusetts. In additional to walking miles and miles in training, and buying shoes and gear, I have a fundraising requirement. In this past, I’ve just met it, but this year, I want to blow it out of the water. So far, with a stash sale, donations from those who have used my Hanne spreadsheets, bake sales at work, and donations from family and friends, I’ve raised over $4000.00. I want to raise $10,000. And so I appeal to all of you.

Because October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, it’s the perfect time for a yarn raffle. I have a pile of prizes, some larger, some smaller. I’ll be showing more as the month progresses, but let’s get going with a little traditional pink!

Prize #1: 2 skeins of pink Malabrigo. Yummy merino, it looks soft, it feels soft!

Prize #2: 1 ball of hot pink Opal sock yarn. Make pink ribbon socks!

You get 1 entry for every $5 you donate to my walk. For every $25 you donate, you get a bonus entry. If your employer does matching donations, you get matching entries!

I’ll draw winners on November 1st and mail out all the prizes. Then I’ll walk 60 miles for breast cancer!

Here’s how you enter:
- Make a tax-deductible, completely secure, totally spam-free donation with your credit card or checking account directly to my Official Breast Cancer 3-Day fundraising page.
- You’ll get e-mail confirmation and forward it to my 3 Day e-mail address: amy3day@gmail.com (so I know to associate your donation with your contact info and raffle entry)
- I enter you in the raffle and send you a raffle confirmation.

You can also make a PayPal donation and I will pay all the PayPal fees, e-mail me for my PayPal address.

The 3-Day site will accept donations from your checking account, but if you prefer to mail me a paper check, please also e-mail me for details.

It’s pretty simple: you like yarn, you have breasts (yes, men too), you knit for people with breasts, you should donate for my 3-Day Walk!

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
