A chance to pay it forward: It will take your mind off your weight problem: A Harmony Project Post

This post isn’t about weight loss. Although I am still working at it. Exercising and cooking.
This post is about a project that means so much to me. It’s a philanthropic group I’ve been a part of for 3 years. It’s given me a chance to fulfill my dream of singing on a real stage. I’m part of a 200-member choir. We give performances, sell tickets, and give it all to charity. We have raised thousands of dollars for charities in Columbus
One group we’re involved with is foster children. Today we’re having a one day 12/12/12 social media event to raise money for bikes.

Today, we’re buying bikes for foster kids in Columbus, Ohio. It’s a social media event. You can give as little as a dollar, or as  as you want. A woman called the “Bike Lady” purchases bikes for us.  We’re putting resources together to give as many bikes as we can in one day. Join our effort. We know it’s a hard times and the holiday season. But, you can be a part of this. How about feeling terrific for a dollar or two? There’s nothing like it!

Here’s a letter from a foster grandparent

A letter from a foster grandparent…yes, even the smallest contribution can yield a significant return:
“I am writing this letter to encourage you to continue giving our young men the mental, spiritual and material tools they need to prepare them for a better future. The bike is a material thing, but it taught my grandson so much. He learned about sharing and taking care of something he cares about. Most importantly, he learned that people who don’t even know him care about him and other children. I remind him often to pass it forward when he is able. Thank you for your support.
Sincerely, A grateful grandmother”

I get absolutely nothing out of this. But, I’ve gotten so much out of sharing my time and helping. You can too!  Please donate, and if you really want to do a good thing share this over the web today. It’s just plain exciting and fun!

By the way, I intensely dislike  selling stuff or asking for money. I really do. But, this project has given me so much! It’s really a blessing. Now it’s your chance to “pay it forward.”

Trust me, you’ll feel good all day!
