I did want to take a break from talking about the other goals, and talk for a moment about the charity goal. My goal is to raise $1,000 for a charity. This seems like a lot, but I have a feeling if I put my mind to it I won't have much of a problem.
My parents always instilled in me a strong sense of community service and providing for the needs of others. We also believe in working hard for everything, but we know that there are many groups less fortunate that could use our time and resources. I appreciate that they pushed us to become involved in many organizations from a young age. We were able to learn compassion and empathy from speaking with and listening to people from a variety of different backgrounds. That experience has proved to be very valuable in every aspect of my current life. I am trying to keep this in mind as I come up with a plan for how I will raise the money.
I could do all of the basic fundraising tactics, but I have a feeling I might have something bigger up my sleeve... ;-) After all, this project is meant to be an adventure!
