A Great Cause

I was intrigued today to receive some mail from America ... it's not my birthday ... I hadn't ordered anything ... none of my friends were over there on holiday ...

Photo-card - Rinda @ Gallo Organica

Upon opening the envelope I had a brief sensation of déjà vu ... I'd seen that striking image before ... a photo-card made by Rinda.  She and her beautiful daughter Clara were thanking me for supporting them with a (small) financial donation as they train for a sponsored half-marathon in aid of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

You can read all about WHY they are supporting the cause right here

I lost a dear school friend to leukaemia 40 years ago and while much progress has been made in treatment since then, there is still a long way to go!  Rinda & Clara have raised a massive 85% of the target they set themselves ... perhaps with a few more donations they can exceed it!   

Good luck girls, both with the training for June 2nd and with smashing that target!

Lovely card! I received an unexpected envelope from Rinda, too - so blogging has not only brought us friends & happy mail, we also get to help a great cause. Just makes me smile!

Thank you for this post!!! I've been really busy and am just now getting around to blog reading, and this really made me smile. I will remember your dear friend when we train and run. The LLS is truly a terrific organization. Thanks again for your support,
