I have wanted to start a fundraising project on Crowdrise for a long time now and I finally have! The link is listed here, and all proceeds generated will go the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF). It is super easy to donate, and every dollar earned will help drive the research that will eventually find a cure for cancer. In addition to directly donating to my foundation please sign up and register for the Third Annual Beth Walton Memorial Run which will be held this upcoming June 10, 2012 at Wheaton Regional Park located in Montgomery County Maryland. For more information go to the direct site which you can access here. For my Crowdrise foundation I will donate every dollar I make through the purchases of my photos available on The Philosophical Photographer. So if you want to donate to a great cause, and get a really cool picture out of the deal then this is the option for you! I know that everyone has it in them to help make a difference in the battle against cancer.
I've learned that ordinary people change the world, and I have also learned that ordinary people unfairly get cancer. No one asks for extraordinary circumstances to happen to them but it does every single day. Ordinary individuals become true heroes, because they find the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles. We ask our heroes to fight for their lives everyday, but we really need to ask ourselves what can we do for them? There is a cure and I truly believe this with all my heart.
Help fund the cure today.
