"Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen" - Ralph Waldo Emerson. Two weeks ago after chatting with my friend Lakisa Ballard, I got the idea to run the Chicago Half Marathon to help raise money for her non-profit, The Imani Children's Literacy Foundation. I wasn't sure if anyone would give money to this cause but I decided to create a fundraising page anyways and ask my friends and family for donations before I had time to talk myself out of the idea. In addition to this, I started half-marathon training right away. Today, we got the first donation to the running cause from my California Mother, Mama Joan! and now we're 8.2% of the way to reaching the $1000 fundraising goal!! Such a reminder to act swiftly on your God-given ideas before fear snatches them away from you! Support the Imani Children's with me by clicking on this link to give to the campaignhttp://www.gofundme.com/3lwlyk. Thanks again Mama Joan for being the first donor!!! Whoop whoop!!
Here's a picture of me and Mama Joan!
