So I have decided to take on a fundraising adventure from now til June 8th!
For over 40 years, JDRF (formerly known as the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) has been a global leader in the search for an end to type 1 diabetes (T1D), through both research funding and advocacy. JDRF’s research is committed to improving the lives of every person with T1D and to curing this disease.
I have joined a local team in my area to help raise money! I am putting portions of my art sales towards it, and I am helping out with an awesome benefit concert!
I really like the idea of fundraising. I find we do it all of lives. Really it is like it makes us keep going to know that we try every once in a while to help someone with some problem of some sort. Its good really. Even though I don’t sound like it in my head as I read what I am writing. To think that we as a people continue to share and fundraise in hope for a better tomorrow, doesn’t it confuse you even further as to why we have so much war, greed, hate and well every single other bad thing we have in the world!? Seriously, I am a very strong believer in living your own life and living within your culture however your culture is happy living. I want us to be able to travel all over the world and go on adventures and discover new people and new things, yet at the same time I dont want to ever leave my country, my homeland, the place in which I have pride in.
As a Canadian, but not speaking for all of them of course, I feel that I have a high sense of pride and for a good reason. Yes, we have our issues, yes we have made mistakes, but we are also a very new country, which stills holds within it an innocence.
I found myself today even having a conflict about whether I would want Manitoba, Canada taking over part of the North Western part of Ontario or not. The stronger answer was that I do not, and this confused me some. It was still Canada? So whats the big deal? Ecspecially when you think about the fact that I have lived in Northern Bristish Columbia at one point in my life. Strange still as I think about it. Maybe it will come to me in the future and I’ll be sure to comment on this blog about it. Overall, I am a very proud Ontarian Canadian, and until that changes, because we all know it could, that is how it will stay.
I am sorry that my writing is a bit all over the place.( For instance, where did the conversation about fundraising go? I guess its good, and everyone should get involved with something!!) I hope to get on a better schedule, and be able to perfect my writing skill more and more over time. Thank you for reading, and I will be back tomorrow to talk about how it’s been for the past 6 months not smoking after smoking for 10 years!
Good Night Tuesday!
