I have a conundrum.
My daughter is set to clean my clock in fundraising in this year’s Relay for Life. She has all of the advantages: she’s cute as hell, she’s a cancer survivor, and she has the best damn father on the planet.
I’m sure you’re all saying “But, Ben – *you’re* cute as hell too!” And you’re right – but somehow, she still wins. This is unacceptable.
Once she realizes her father is fallible, well, that’s the end of things. It will only be a matter of weeks until she has stolen my car and my tattoos, and is joyriding straight to the American Girl store with my debit card.
Please, don’t let that happen.
In the past, many of you have been generous enough to donate to my cause. If you can help again, please do. Every little bit helps. This year has seen more cancer impacts in my life than the last several combined. The mother of Emma’s close friend passed away in February. Members of my close karate community, and my close blogging community have had diagnoses. I’m sure you’ve felt its impact in your life.
If you can help, please visit my donation page.
There are some incentives:
For a donation of $50.00, either to me, or to Emma, I’ll write an approximately 500 word post in your blog on a topic of your choosing. For a donation of $100.00, I’ll write a personalized short story of approximately 1,000 words, or two 500 word blog posts – both the story and the posts can be about anything you choose. I’m flexible and eager to please!
2. Leave a comment here letting me know that you did so. Make sure to fill out the right email address in the comment field.
3. I’ll email you to schedule the writing and topics! It’s that easy!
4. If you are in need free of copywriting, editing, design, or other creative work, hire me! 10% of your bill for services through May 15th will go to my Relay for Life fundraising, and I’ll match it with 10% of my own.
Over the coming weeks, you’ll see info about this in the blog fairly often. My postings will continue to be about dadding and Emma, but will feature donate links. Please, take advantage of them. You can help another family not have a story like mine to tell.
