Non-Teacher Related- PLEASE VOTE!!!!

One thing about planning a wedding is that it’s easy to get into financial troubles and overspend on the happiest day of your life. In order to help one lucky couple start off on the right financial foot, TransUnion is running a contest where the winner receives $10,000!

I have already entered the contest but now I'm  asking you my friends and family to toast to our financial happiness by logging into the contest and voting for US! The lucky couple whose photo receives the most eligible votes at the end of the contest at midnight on June 6 will walk away with the grand prize of $10,000 in cash to help them start their new lives together off on the right financial footing.  A $1,000 cash prize will be awarded to second place and a $500 cash prize to third place.  The top five finalists will each receive a year subscription to TransUnion products.

Charity Water

I will also be honest, up until Sunday, it never really occurred to me that over 1 billion people don't have access to safe, clean drinking water. A billion people?! That is a lot of people. That's 1 in six people drinking dirty, bacteria filled water. A billion people people!

On Sunday, I went to church as always seeking a word, one that would help me become a better person not only for myself but better for the world. My pastor continued his series called "Love Out Loud". This series is explaining how we sometimes let the media confuse us about the REAL definition of love. He told us a story of his trip to Africa. This trips purpose was to bring clean water to villages. Below is the short version of the story.

"I went to Ethiopia and saw children who had no clean water to drink. I saw adults who were dehydrated, and ill yet joyful despite not having clean water. My heart was broken and I was inspired at the same time. Please help me help these amazing people. You can donate $36 or more and change someone's life because clean water can change everything!"

You can click HERE to see the whole service and hear the whole story, TRUST me it's GREAT!!! 

Because of his words, those pictures and my hearts NEED to do something, to help those in need of something so basic. I've started my own fund-raiser to help those who can't help themselves and I'm pleading for your help. Any amount will work, every penny, nickel,dime,quarter or dollar will help! It's my goal to raise $5000.00 in 92 days. $5000.00 will buy a village a water well which will supply them with CLEAN drinking water.
