Hello faithful readers, I hope all is well in your world on this somewhat chilly evening. I am writing this post because I need your help/guidance/honesty about a conversation that Lyndsey and I had today. While enjoying our favorite guilty pleasure, Jersey Shore, we started talking about our daughter Hayley’s first birthday and the fundraiser we had for Variety the Children’s Charity and how much fun we had doing such a great thing for kids and families that need help and support.
The truth is we want to start our own charitable/non profit foundation and raise money and awareness for charities like Variety. We were able to raise a pretty large chunk of change with our fundraiser and I think that we could do so much more with our own foundation.
I would like to ask anyone and everyone who reads this what they think about this idea, are we crazy, does it make sense, does anyone have any advise for us or some expertise they could share? Hayley’s party was a great day for us and I think both of us realized that this may be what we were meant to do, and we also realized that this was the reason Hayley came into our lives. She has shown us what is really important and what true love means. We want to spend the rest of our lives making sure that other kids have the same opportunities that Hayley had and that other families know that there is hope.
Please give me your feedback, don’t be shy, good or bad I want to hear it.
