Okay, friends. Here’s the deal. Procrastinating Patsy (me) is getting her GAME ON. It is TIME to get the ball rolling, and I mean ROLLING, for Traffick Jam 2011. Can I get a WOOT WOOT??
There’s a reason I didn’t make the cheerleading squad (besides the fact that I didn’t try out).
If you don’t know what Traffick Jam 2011 is, you can check out their site or read this post I wrote March 7. If you just can’t possibly take the time to click click and read things, here it is in a nutshell: Traffick Jam 2011 is a 10-mile walk being held all over the United States on May 7. The goal? To bring child sex trafficking in Cambodia to a screeching halt. It’s a crazy-huge goal. But with enough money and manpower and GOD-power, these sweet kiddos can be rescued.
I’ll cut to the chase. Gabe and the girls and I are walking, and we each need 10 people to sponsor us $1 per mile ($10). If you do the math, that’s 50 people @ $10 = $500.
I know some of you would love to just write a big ol’ check and we could meet our goal in about 3 minutes. That’s wonderful, and I certainly won’t stop you, but I would love, love, love to have a big ol’ group of people (50) all pitching in a bit ($10–which I know is a LOT for some of you! I get that!) so it feels like a great big ol’ community effort. I love community efforts.
So here’s what I’m asking from you:
1.) If you’d like to sponsor us for our walk, e-mail me and let me know. You can mail me a check (made payable to International Outreach Ministries) or pay via paypal to IOM directly. Just type Traffick Jam 2011 in the “purpose” box.
2.) If you’d like to join us on the walk here in Columbus, e-mail me ASAP. I’ll need your t-shirt size and $15 registration fee by FRIDAY!
3.) If you can’t donate or walk, but you’d be willing to pray for us, for Traffick Jam 2011, for the children being trafficked in Cambodia, or all of the above, you would bless me like crazy.
I’d love to knock this thing out in TWO DAYS if we can. Who’s with me??
