July is officially over which means that I am 1/3 of the way through my fundraiser. Overall it was a great first month!
— We had the Walking Against The Grain kick off party, which was beyond successful. Thank you again to all those that came and donated.
— We were able to get a grand total of 87 people to like the Walking Against The Grain Facebook page. EIGHTY-SEVEN! Like I’ve said from the beginning, one “Like” at a time.
— We headed down to San Diego and were able to get the lovely ladies of UC San Diego CHI OMEGA to join the movement!
— Lastly, since I created this blog it was really more of a way for me to remember the process and the struggle that I knew this journey would be. Since my first post on July 1st I’ve gotten 512 hits. That means on average 16 people are viewing my page daily!!
During the month of July Walking Against The Grain has raised a total of $450! From $0 to $450 thats pretty significant if you ask me! I am beyond grateful to those who have taken the time and the generosity to support what I’m doing. Even if all I raise is $450 at least that’s $450 that the AIDS WALK did not have before and we can call say we were apart of that. Right?!
But if you think I’m going to stop here, you are sadly mistaken! $450 is wonderful but I set out to raise $1500 and I will continue to fundraise until the day of the Walk on October 16th.
I’m excited to see what August has in store. This month I’m focusing on getting my co-workers and my bosses involved. I also have something every fun up my sleeve that could potentially be awesome for Walking Against The Grain! I plan on announcing what that is by the end of the week. So please continue to show support by visiting the blog, getting others to like the Facebook page and by donating.
Thanks again everyone!
