I Hope You All Still Love Me After This...

Okay...soooo this post feels very awkward for me.  I feel like I am putting each and every one of you on blast, but I promise I'm not!  I am simply throwing this out there in case anyone wants to take part in something pretty cool with me.

Each year, the company I work for has a bowl-a-thon to raise money to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation.  My hubby and I have proudly taken part in this event each year {except for 2009 when I was suuuuper sick...booo me}.  It makes me so happy to say that over the past 10 years, our company has been able to raise over $1 million dollars for this awesome cause.  We get to meet our "wish" children each year, and it is so touching.

So while I am not expecting any of my {super awesome} bloggy friends to donate, I did want to put this out there in case someone wanted to support this great event with us.

Believe me...I know we are all short on money.  We all scrimp and save each paycheck.  So I promise there will be no hard feelings on my end, as long as you don't all boycott my blog for posting this.  Deal?!?!  :)

Oh, and if you do want to throw fifty cents or a dollar my way, you can go to my donation page here:
Make-A-Wish Foundation® of New Jersey - Gabbi Zaccheria - 11th Annual Bowl-A-Thon - Gabbi Zaccheria's Page

Don't worry.  I will be back to my regularly scheduled home decor, landscaping, renovating posts ASAP!!!!!!!! :)

  3. Gabbi, my daughter is a childhood cancer survivor. When she was 8, Make-A-Wish granted her a "wish" due to the uncertainty of her ability to survivor the big C. She chose (as many, many children do) to go to Disney World. Our family had a wonderful week of memory making with our healthy child and our ill child. The whole experience was stress-free and wonderful for both children and parents and may have just saved my marriage. All that to say that what you are doing is wonderful and very appreciated...from someone who has benefitted from Make-A-Wish's vision. Thank you!

    1. Angela, thank you so very much for sharing your story with us! I was so touched and moved to tears to hear about your family and what you experienced. Hearing real life stories, especially from someone in my blog family, is such a great reminder of all the good this foundation does! Xo!
