Many people run in order to raise money for their chosen charity and there are even races organized purely to find much needed monetary support (and raise awareness of course). I remember times when most of the fundraising was done by knocking on people’s door so the fundraising of the digital age is making things much easier (especially for introverts like me). Facebook, twitter, blogs, emails allow you to reach wider audience and if you throw a cake sale in the office to the mix, the fundraising is not as daunting as it may seem and can be actually fun! Common on – everybody loves cake!
And while we are on the topic of fundraising, I’m not sure if I mentioned that I’m running the London marathon this year. Well, I am – in less than three weeks on Sunday 26th April, and I will be wearing a pink vest showing my support to Action for Blind People. If you would like to help, this is my fundraising page.
Yeah, that wasn’t cheeky at all 🙂
