A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU MESSAGE

Sending along a message from no_mysteryleft

Thank you everyone who participated, benefited and donated during the 3dayforthecure fundraiser! Special thanks to outoftime for putting it together.

Thanks to your support I surpassed the $2,300 minimum. I am currently at $2,524.47. As some of you know after hitting my minimum I diverted several fundraisers to my teammate Janae. If any of you still have pending donations to pay, please, please donate them to Janae (here instead of me. Of course it's your donation so you can make it to whomever you wish, but after some soul searching and praying about it I decided it's way more important to me that Janae hit her minimum too than it is for me to hit my $2,700/10K goal. Just because it isn't reflected in MY fundraising account doesn't mean I didn't get there. I'm past my $10,000 mark and my friend is going to walk with me this weekend. That's such an amazing feeling.

I'm putting together memorial and honor ribbons this week to carry with me on the walk. I'm sure some of you bid and donated because of a personal connection you have to the cause. Please leave a comment on this post with any names you'd like me to carry this weekend. Also please specify if it is a memorial or in honor of a survivor.

Again, thank you so, so much for your support and love. Please think of me this weekend and know that I am thinking of you and your loved ones! Also PLEASE, if you have any interest in participating in a 3-day and want a cheerleader to tell you that YOU CAN DO IT! don't hesitate to email me at vipkacie@gmail.com

Passing along a message from no_mysteryleft

Hi guys! I just wanted to take a few moments to thank you for your creativity and generosity! Breast cancer, Susan G. Komen for the Cure         and the 3-Day have changed my life in so many ways. Losing my grandma when she was only 58 was one of the worst things I could imagine. But now, 21 years later I am so grateful for the people and opportunities it brought me. My 3-Day family is made up of amazing pink warriors and survivors and some of the most generous people I've ever had the privilege of knowing. I am so proud of what I've done in memory of my grandmother. If I raise $2,700 this year (so just $400 above the $2,300 minimum to walk) I will have personally raised $10,000 for Susan G. Komen since 2009. I would be honored and humbled to hit that milestone this year.

Fundraising is hard in this economy, but I've learned that people are still incredibly generous and kind. With 1 in 8 women being diagnosed with breast cancer chances are every one of you has a story like mine. It's impossible to find someone who hasn't been touched by this disease in some way. Your contributions will help me achieve a goal, but the ultimate goal is so much more than that. Your contributions will become a part of creating a world without breast cancer. Congratulations -- you might not feel different, but you're now part of my pink family. <3

xoxo,
Kacie

Welcome to 3dayforthecure, a Live Journal Fundraiser
I'm sure you have a few questions. Let me give you some information!

I created this Fundraiser to help support my friend, no_mysteryleft. Every year, Kacie does the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure. Every year, participants agree to raise $2,300 before the 3-Day Walk. Please go here for Kacie's Fundraising Page and read here to learn why Kacie does this Walk every year and why it is so important to her. 

What is Susan G. Komen and the 3-Day Walk, you may ask? Let me let the website give you the details: 

Susan G. Komen Foundation: 

The Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure net proceeds fund innovative global breast cancer research and local community programs supporting education, screening and treatment. Virtually every major advance in the fight against breast cancer in the last 29 years has been impacted by a Susan G. Komen for the Cure® grant.

3-Day Walk for the Cure: 

Thousands of women and men come together, each raising money for Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. Then they take their commitment to end breast cancer one step further and walk 60 miles over the course of three days.

This is an amazing thing that Kacie and many others do. I'm sure every one of you knows someone who has been touched by cancer - either themselves, or their family members or friends. 

Kacie has currently raised $945 of her $2,300 goal. I'd like to help her get there. 
And if anyone is curious, in case the auction raises more than Kacie needs, the rest will still go to Susan G. Komen, of course!

This is where you come in

I have started two posts. One for Graphics, one for FanFic. 

Please help out by either offering up graphics or fic for bidders, or bidding on the graphics or fic offered. Or, even better, both! 

Offerers: 
You can either do a Top Bidder Auction, where people bid on you and the highest bidder at the end of the auction (November 6) wins, or you can offer a set amount for your services to multiple bidders (for example: 5 icons for $3, 500 words for $3, etc., etc) - this is up to you. 

Bidders: 
Please be aware that you are responsible for all bids that are made. When you win, you can pay either directly through Kacie's site (the MUCH preferred way) or you can send a payment via Paypal to kacies3day@gmail.com, where all funds will be donated to Kacie at the end of the auction. It may be helpful to include your username when paying for the auction. Once you have sent your payment, please provide the offerer a copy of your confirmation email. 


Please help us spread the word on this fundraiser! The more people who know about it, the more successful it will (hopefully) be. Feel free to use (and hotlink!) the graphic above, or make your own!

Thanks!
