Weston Hospicecare deals with issues that are very close to my heart. After losing my father to cancer a little over a year ago I wanted to get involved with a sponsored event to help raise money for the people who helped him in his final days. I heard about a sponsored midnight beach walk (that’s right, I did say MIDNIGHT!) taking place on September 13th 2008 and decided this would be the perfect way to give something back and raise money for a very worthy cause.
So, your very own Girlie Gossip editor will be taking part in this event and I’d really love your help!
I have set up a page for online sponsorships/donations on JustGiving.Com this allows your money to be safely, quickly and directly paid to Weston Hospicecare so you know that it’s definitely going to the correct place. The web address where you can find out more information, view some great pictures of my dad and hopefully sponsor me is: http://www.justgiving.com/beckybowden
As an incentive to any companies, bands, websites etc who sponsor me I’m offering up some free advertising on Girlie Gossip! The highest donators will get their link/banner placed on the front page of Girlie Gossip in the run up to the event and anyone else who donates can request a link to be displayed right here in this post for everyone to see. (Please note, No linked deemed as inappropriate will be accepted) if you have donated or are thinking of donating and would like your link or banner adding here just get in touch via the contact page and we can discuss further!
Images will be provided after the event showing proof of completion including a nice shiny medal and certificate to show that I really have taken part!
So, please do click the link above to be taken to my fundraising page and every sponsorship pledge will be very gratefully received!
Please take a look at the fab websites below as they have all helped by sponsoring me in this fundraising event!
