Ever since Lilly was born, it’s been in the back of my mind that I’d like to get involved in advocacy for spina bifida, but felt I was too busy caring for my child, and the rest of my life, to take on anything too time consuming.
Recently, I found out about a fundraising campaign called 4b4the4th. It aims to raise funds for and awareness of spina bifida through the Spina Bifida Association, in the four months leading up to July 4. It’s fairly simple: you just register and set up a web page, and share it through social media like Facebook, Twitter, and email, where people can donate. Even I can do that!
The SBA’s goal this year is to raise $42,000. I’ve set a modest goal of $1,500. It won’t win me the grand prize of tickets and accommodations to this year’s SBA Conference in Minneapolis (I’d love to go to one someday, though), but that’s okay. I just want to do my little part in helping out the SB community.
If you’d like to donate to the 4b4the4th campaign, go here.. Lilly and I, and the SB community, would appreciate any amount you can give. Thanks!
