Please Help Us Defeat Breast Cancer

Avon Walk for Breast Cancer

On September 12-13, Chris Pearson, Missy Ward and yours truly (along with our other wonderful team members) will be walking 40 miles in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in Los Angeles.

Not only that, Chris and I are donating $20,000 on behalf of DIY Themes (at Missy’s request, we’re splitting the donation between Avon and the National Breast Cancer Foundation).

Can you help us raise even more?

The money we raise allows medically under-insured women and men (yes, the disease strikes a small percentage of men) to receive the screening, support, and treatment they require. And leading-edge research teams will be provided with the funds they need to fuel their quest for a cure.

Yes, there are many other worthy causes out there. But Missy is a tireless advocate for breast cancer awareness, and a longtime fundraiser who’s helping to find that cure… so we’re right there with her.

Here’s how you can help:

You can simply make a direct online donation through my personal Avon Walk for Breast Cancer page. Any amount is appreciated, but as you know, higher amounts bring extra good karma.

Even better, you can participate in our walking team’s Not So Silent Auction and get really great stuff in exchange for your donation.

I’ve just donated two hours of telephone consulting for you to bid on. Since I don’t usually do consulting, I hope someone bids lots of money on this so I’m not embarrassed. 😉

But there’s a ton of other tempting things to bid on, so go with what works best for you.

Thank you in advance for your help!

I’d also like to thank the DIY Themes community for supporting the Thesis Theme for WordPress. It’s because of all of you that we’re able to support worthy causes like the battle against breast cancer. You rock.
