did you know...?

Well, the first crush of donations and pledges have slowed but it has been a great start! Thanks to all of you who have graciously offered a monetary donation as well as your words of encouragement for both the London Marathon AND for my chosen charity, Guide Dogs UK. There is still some fundraising to do so if you have not yet had a chance to support, please consider this worthy cause....or do you Hachie Gal a personal favor and forego a couple of days of Starbucks coffees to show your support.

To help you consider/reconsider....did you know that...

...Guide Dogs UK has been providing blind and partially-sighted people with freedom and independence through the support of "man's best friend" for over 75 years?

...Guide Dogs UK requires over 50 million GBP a year to continue its work?

...Guide Dogs received no government funding and that their services are entirely dependent on voluntary donations?

...it costs around 10 GBP a day to breed, train and care for each guide dog?

You can easily support me and Guide Dogs UK by donating even $5 to help me reach my goal in the London Flora Marathon. I can put in the miles every day because I am able to see and function independently...guide dogs provide that gift of sight for others every day.

Please consider supporting me by making a donation to Guide Dogs UK (click on the box on the RH side of the blog). Thanking you in advance!
