Hopping to a Solution

Today is my birthday, and I love to give other people gifts on my birthday.  As you know, today starts Breast Cancer Awareness month, and this is a topic which became very near and dear to me last year.

I'm also at LavaCon, where I delivered two workshops yesterday.  The workshop on personal branding was delivered in the ever-famous pink bunny suit.  I still get asked about that suit a lot.

So here's the scoop:  I'm slated to walk the 5K in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Des Moines on October 23rd.  I will do the entire route wearing the pink bunny suit IF I can raise $5000 in the next 3 weeks.  Why $5,000?  Well, the event generally raises a half million dollars, and I'd rather be 1% of the solution than 99% of the problem.  Why did I wait so long to post this?  For starters, I like a challenge, and three weeks is a great challenge to raise $5,000 for a great charity.  Second, I know how busy people are and how they procrastinate, so I'm not giving them the chance to delay.

Contact me to find out logistics.  For those sending checks snail mail, Post Office Box 7832 in Urbandale, Iowa 50323 (make sure your checks are made out directly to Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure).  For those using Paypal the email is transact [at] carpefactum [dot] com.  Finally, Ben Milne and the folks from Dwolla have set up a special account for this promotion.  For both Paypal and Dwolla, remember to put "Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure" in the memo section.

Together, let's HOP to a solution.
