I'm No Good At Fundraising...

I never have been good at it. The same day that I created this post, I emailed some people letting them know what I was doing (running a 5k through the Komen Foundation), and that I'm trying to earn money for breast cancer, and that I would appreciate a donation. Any donation, any amount. Even $1. By the end of the email, I was practically offering to give them money instead of take theirs. As of right this moment (11:55 am and 13 seconds) I have raised zero dollars. I'm just no good at asking for money. I feel guilty. Even though it's for a good cause.

I'm still taking donations if you're interested in donating. Click here to donate.

Or I'll just give you money instead.

Here are some facts about breast cancer.

(aside from some kinds of skin cancer-)
Breast cancer is:
  • the most common cancer in women, regardless of race or ethnicity
  • the most common cause of death from cancer among Hispanic women
  • the second most common cause of death from cancer among white, black, Asian/Pacific Islander, and American Indian/Alaska Native women
  • in 2007 - 202,964 women were diagnosed with breast cancer and 40,598 women died from breast cancer
