Online Fundraisers

Many times through the year, I will do an online fundraiser to raise funds for a cause that means something to me, or I have had people approach me, asking for an online fundraiser.

Currently, I am doing an online fundraiser to benefit Team McGraw and their participation in the New York City Marathon in November 2010.  My goal is to raise $1000.00 by the end of September 2010.  

Since 2003, the Tug McGraw Foundation has worked to raise awareness and improve the quality of life for those patients and caregivers confronted with brain tumors; in 2009, they expanded their programs to include Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Trauma Brain Injury (TBI).

Team McGraw consists of members of Tim McGraw's band, The Dance Hall Doctors, and other members.  They participate in events all over the country to raise funds for this great cause.  As a fan, I support their efforts, but also, as someone who has had PTSD affect my life, I am supportive of programs that help those who have to deal with it on a daily basis.

My fundraiser can be accessed via my website at and click on the Online Event Tab.  After that, all you need to do is type in the word DHD2010 at checkout and 10% of your purchase will be sent to Team McGraw once the event closes out at the end of September.

I will be creating a list of all who purchase and will be drawing a name for a prize at the end of the event. I have not yet decided what that prize will be, but at the moment I suspect it will be something that smells very pretty!  I will keep you posted on that!

Thank you for taking the time to visit this blog and for reading it.
