In my last post, I joked that I was going to do a fundraiser in which I would post a photo of my biceps, if at least 20 people donated at least $5 to Livestrong. Well, someone called my bluff. Thanks to the person who decided to give to Livestrong!
So, I'll raise the stakes. If 40 of you readers and your friends meet the goal by next Friday (April 23, 2010), I'll follow through with this embarrasing endeavor. I'll take a photo of my "sexy, flexy woman arms" and put it out there for all the world to see!
I only have 26 followers on this blog, so you'll have to spread the word to make this happen! If you donate to Livestrong, leave a comment for me, since I don't have any other way to track it. On your honor!
In case you aren't familiar with Livestrong (AKA the Lance Armstrong Foundation), it is a charitable organization begun by Lance Armstrong after his fight with cancer. The foundation provides assistance to people suffering from cancer and their loved ones and raises funds for cancer research. For a first hand experience of what the LAF does, check out the Fat Cyclist blog. The LAF helped Elden Nelson (the Fat Cyclist) and his family when his wife was battling cancer. During that time and ever since, Elden has used his blog (which also tells the very funny and heartfelt stories of his love of cycling) to raise tons of cash for Livestrong. It's pretty sweet.
The line has been drawn in the sand. Will you step up?!
