Blogathon Begging

Remember Blogathon. That crazy 24 hours where I stay up to post every 30 minutes for 24 hours in order to raise money for Children's Hospital? Well, it's this upcoming weekend and I am about halfway to my goal. Thanks to my very generous sponsors, I've raised over $200 already. But that's NOT ENOUGH.

My goal is to raise $500. My first goal, before Blogathon starts this upcoming weekend, is to have raised $250. I'm not there yet. Which is where you come in. You don't have to spend a fortune in sponsorship money. A dollar here, a dollar there. It adds up. So please, be generous and consider sponsoring me.

I'm raising money for Children's Hospital because of my children's personal and very long relationship with this fine institution. From birth my children have been under the care of the finest doctors, nurses, and staff there is in the world of pediatric medicine. Without Children's, my daughter would not be walking. My son might be in very rough shape. And both of my kids would not be monitored for our genetic heart defect.

Childrens' Hospital in Boston never ever refuses a child, regardless of the ability to pay. Children from all over the world are treated there because their doctor's do so much pro-bono work with the worst cases. But that work costs money. Money that they collect through donations. If you have ever known a sick child who could have benefited from such excellent care, you understand why I work so hard to raise money for this hospital.

So please be generous and donate!
