the new year.

I feel as though I should explain where this blog is going in 2012. It will be a different year from 2011 in a few ways. First, I will not be featuring a different non-profit each month, but instead will be focusing more on little ways you can make a difference. I want to show you that donating or doing something great doesn't have to be a huge commitment or financial burden. Little things can make a huge difference in another person's life. 

Secondly, I hope to get a little more personal. I have always enjoyed writing from an early age, and while I am not the best writer, I hope one thing or another is good enough to inspire you.

And last but certainly not least, I have two big things happening in 2012 that I will need your help with. My first goal is to donate my hair again to Locks of Love. At this point I have about 8 inches I'm willing to part with, and I need 10. I'm hoping to chop it all off sometime in the summer...that is if I don't go crazy and shave it all off before then :) I'll need your help keeping me away from a salon until then. AND if you are interested in donating with me, please let me know. My cousin Leah is already on board, and I can't wait! 

The second goal is running the 5K in the Riverbank Run in May. I will be doing fundraising from now until then for Safe Haven Ministries in Grand Rapids, and all along training to survive the run. Right now I can run two miles and feel like I hit a wall at that point.....and I need to run 3.2 miles! So any words of encouragement or advice are much appreciated. I will have more info on how to donate and Safe Haven Ministries coming up! Hope the New Year is treating you well so far!

Be the change. Make the difference.
