I recently asked my fellow personal finance bloggers (and my readers) to contact me and let me know about their favorite charities.Â Several bloggers and readers have responded – but I’d still love to hear from you!Â So, read the original post about the Charity Spotlight 2007 and let me know about your favorite charity.
Today, the spotlight shines on Beth’s favorite charity –
The American Cancer Society Relay For Life
Beth’s article about her participation and why she loves this charity:Â Beth’s Random Life -Â Relay For Life Kickoff
A quote from the Relay For Life website –
At events in 4,800 communities nationwide, teams of families, friends and coworkers join together to CELEBRATE the lives of those who have battled cancer, REMEMBER those lost and FIGHT BACK against a disease that takes too much.
A quote from Beth’s Random Life website –
I got the scare of my life…a large mass was found in the deep tissue of my right breast…Luckily, the mass was found to be a benign fibroadenoma. Since then Iâ€™ve had several students who have survived cancer in one form or another. Thatâ€™s why I continue and strive to raise money for the ACS (Relay For Life).
I urge you to visit the Relay For Life website and consider making a donation and/or participating in a local relay.Â My local church has been participating for several years, and I find that the organization is well run and that the relay means so much to so many.
Beth, thanks for sharing this great charity with us!
If you have a charity that you’d like me to ‘spotlight’, please read this post.Â I’d love to hear from you.
