One way I thought I could honor today was when anyone wished me a HAPPY BIRTHDAY I would ask them to donate to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Now I know $30 for my 30th Birthday may have sounded better, but I didn't want folks to feel overly pressured. I decided I would mention $5, since it is like them buying me a birthday cup of coffee (and getting a tax write-off out of it).
I have been overwhelmed with the response. I have already received 20 donations for the day - totaling $335 (and there are still 7 hours left in the day!). I actually had to update my GOAL three times now because we have continued to meet and exceed it - GO YOU!
Thank you so much to everyone who had donated (and may donate in the future). I truly believe we are blessed to bless others and am BEYOND THRILLED that my friends and family are giving to a cause which is near and dear to my heart!
