Here's the deal. Before the end of Sept, 2006 I am going to atempt to ride my bike from my cottage in Victoria Beach, Manitoba back to the city of Winnipeg which is 100 km. I have been thinking of doing this for many years. I have procrastinated enough. And after a fantastic recovery triple by pass heart surgery this is the year to do it.
To make it a little more fun I have decided to make this a fundraiser for Sleeping Children Around the World. SCAW:
- does not receive government funds
- does not advertise
- all work is done by volunteers
- 100% of all donations goes directly to the children
What I am asking each of you is a donation to SCAW upon completion of at least 100 km. You can decide to donate an amount per kilometer or a lump sum for the whole trip.
I know someone is always trying to pick our collective pockets, at work, at home, on the phone and at the mall. I have only sent this email to my friends who have the biggest hearts and are very generous. So dig deep. Donate $30 or more and you'll get a photo of a child with your name on a bedkit photo. Thirty dollars is just a good bottle of red wine! Who am I kidding $30 buys me 4 or 5 bottles of wine.
Whenever I make a donation to charity I feel so great and you will too.
