An Anniversary Challenge for Hope!

22 Jan

It’s my 1 Year Anniversary!!
I’ve been an official blogger for 1 year.
And here’s my Anniversary CHALLENGE!

In 5 weeks I will be running the Disney Princess half marathon.
Even though I SWORE OFF of half-marathons last year! Seriously!!
To see WHY I’m running click here.

The CHALLENGE is to raise $250 for Hope House in 4 weeks.

Did you catch the stats?

–Florida is No. 3 in the nation for reported cases of Human Trafficking!!
–27 million people are enslaved worldwide
–80% of the victims are women and children
–Every 30 seconds, another person becomes a victim of slavery
–99% are not rescued out……yet.

So I’m throwing down the proverbial gauntlet. 🙂
After reading Jean’s & Dolly’s blogs this morning about God-Sized Dreams I thought this was appropriate!

Will YOU HELP me meet the CHALLENGE?
Will YOU HELP raise $250 or more for Hope House??

  • Could YOU contribute $5.00?
  • Will YOU pray about whether God wants you to do more?
  • Will YOU pray FOR ME as I train and then run on February 24?
  • Will YOU pray for the staff at Hope House as they minister God’s healing and restoration to these precious princesses?

Here’s the nitty gritty.

  1. You can give online! Just click here. Please make sure you click the “in honor of” button and put my name there. Thanks!
  2. If you want to give by check, make them out to Hope House
  3. Checks need to be to me by February 19. Email me: and I’ll send you my address.


Thanks in advance for helping me meet my Anniversary Challenge for Hope! 🙂
I’m already started toward my goal, thanks to Jean –
part of my online sisterhood & my 1st contributor! Thanks, my WISE friend :-).
Can’t wait to report what God does!!

      But you have such beautiful words about your 5 mile run! Believe me, it’s all who you run with, because 5 was my max before I met the Firehouse 7. Hugs to you! 🙂

    I tried to donate online 3 different times tonight and it kicked it out…tried two different cards. I’ll call them tomorrow and see if they can process over the phone. Hugs and happy running!! Proud of you, Girl!

        Just so you know…I spoke to someone from Hope House tonight and they will check on they weblink for donating!! Don’t think they knew it was broken. I told her what you guys did and that people had been trying to donate. Maybe it will be fixed in a day or so! HOORAY!!
