As long as I can remember, I have loved being outside. I love to hike, bike, climb, walk along waterways, and simply be out in the fresh air, especially where there is an incredible view. This week, as I have caught myself more and more complaining about my aging self and my aches and pains as I am reaching mid-age. Then I read about a teacher who was the victim of a hit and run, leaving her without a leg, and I was immediately touched.
There were just so many things about her story that hit home for me. For one, she is a teacher who seems so incredibly passionate about teaching. And then there is the fact that she loves to be active. It broke my heart thinking she may not be able to do those things she loves.
Immediately, I donated and then I jumped in with others to donate products for a fundraiser to help her. But that just isn't enough. It isn't enough because I still see the funds she needs versus what has been donated. So, here I plead with you to donate. Just do what you can to help her. It doesn't have to be much, but know that anything would be significant.
I just can't imagine not being able to do what I love. And I can't imagine that for anyone else either.
Here is the link to the GoFundMe Page where you can read her story and learn more about the situation. If you read, you will donate! I just know you will! ;)
