Standing for kids who can't stand for themselves.
As you all know, children with chronic or terminal diseases hold a special place in my heart. I'm part of an organization called S.M.I.L.E, Students Making Impacts through Love and Empathy. S.M.I.L.E does a TON of work with the Dell Children's Hospital here in Austin. One of their fundraisers is TexasTHON, where you raise money and stand for 12 hours for the kids that can't stand for themselves. Seeing as how I was one of those kids just this past year, I know just how much it sucks, and how expensive it is. I was lucky enough to live in a great town that donated a lot when I really needed it, but not everyone is as lucky as me. This fundraiser helps those families get the treatment they need, regardless of how much they can pay. I only need to raise $100 dollars to participate, and right now I have nada, zilch, zero. You don't have to donate much to help, and your donation goes to a TERRIFIC cause that drastically changes people's lives each year.
I know it's awkward to ask for money....but could you PLEASE donate?It's for the kids!
