Fun vacation, new career, fundraising and more…
It’s been three weeks since my last blog so I figured; it’s about time I post. Life is busy lately—in a good way. Here’s what’s going on in my world:
We just got back from a great family vacation in Arizona combined with a wedding of one of Jon’s old college friends. Our last wedding with this group was in 1998 so it was nice to reunite with the old crew. It was also great to spend time with my parents and grandmother in sunny Arizona. We were there last year this time too—only I had a lot less hair.
In several previous posts, I’ve mentioned social media and my business partner, Jim Tobin. I’ve become increasingly interested in the social media world over the past year. As a result, I’m taking on an increased role in my work life and starting a Detroit office of Ignite Social Media. It means I’ll be working more but I’m excited for the new challenge. In a lot of ways, I credit breast cancer for my new interest and career opportunity.
We’ve sold over 100 tickets for the “Annie” Fundraiser on May 10th. I’m excited with all the enthusiasm and still have more tickets for anyone interested.
And Ta Ta Breast Cancer is up to 10 team members and still more joining. Check out our team page if you’d like to join and for ways to support our team. If you have any ideas for fundraisers, send them along. I’m always looking for new fun ways to raise money especially ideas that don’t cost people much money and things people would potentially purchase anyways. I like to call it “fundraising in the new economy”.
Speaking of new economy, I was completely wowed and inspired by our president last night. And how about the 1.26 billion dollar infusion directed at cancer research? That’s my kind of infusion.
