28 Days of Awesome: Day 8
Today started out rough and kept getting worse, but I decided not to let the challenges and the hurt get the best of me. Woo. Sah.
I got a Tweet from a classmate who I didn’t know well saying that she was fundraising to go teach film in Kenya and today was the last day to donate. Now, because of who I am by nature and the fact that I got a lot of much needed support in a certain national contest last year, I am quick to vote for people for things and to share word of their efforts with my networks when they need cash donations. I wish I was in a position to give more often, but truth is…I’m broke, more often than not. One of my challenges for this month is also to spend some time trying to figure that condition out, real talk. Little comes in, but far too much goes out, ya dig?
Anyway, I figured the least I could do was donate $10 towards the $490 she needed and to share the donation link with people on Facebook and Twitter. Well, in the 20 minutes that followed, I watched her go from needing $490, to just $99 dollars and to being over her goal. That was AWESOME! I am so happy for this girl and so happy to see the power of the internet working for someone trying to do a good thing.
In other Awesome (if not fun) news, I called a bill company that I had been avoiding and made an arrangement that I can handle. Yay. And I’m gonna hit the streets and happy hour it up. Also Awesome.
I can name 100 things I want right now that I don’t have, some of which I can’t have now and others, probably never. Today, I am going to focus on that I do.
