Here I sit working on my studies when out of nowhere I receive a Happy Anniversary message from WordPress. I can’t believe it’s already been 3 years since I posted my very first blog entry! Where does the time go?
It’s been several months now since my last post and as crazy as it sounds I feel like its only been weeks. I’ve kept busy with work, Gift With A Pink Ribbon, training for the New York Marathon and School just to name some of the big things that are keeping me on my toes, but in light of the message I received I wanted to take a brief moment to truly thank everyone for all of your support. Its thanks to all of you that GWAPR exists now as a nonprofit organization, donating blankets to cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy treatments all throughout the US.
Just this past April we were able to send blankets to the Moffitt Cancer Centers for their volunteers to deliver to the patients currently undergoing chemo treatments. Our next step will be the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital right here in Miami. I can’t wait to deliver all of the colorful blankets we have created so far to the children receiving treatments!
My days are long, and sometimes I even feel like I don’t have more to give but there is one thing that always keeps me going….. The smile that comes to the faces of each person that receives one of our blankets. Just knowing that we are brightening someone’s day makes every hour spent on our mission worth it.
I can’t believe that a week has already passed since our Gift With A Pink Ribbon Annual Fundraising event in Naples, FL on October 27th, 2016. Where does the time go?
It was such an exciting night! 😀
I had the opportunity to reunite with people that have been such a big part of my life growing up in Naples, and was also able to meet so many new faces. I can honestly say that I am still blown away by the turn out.
Gift With A Pink Ribbon was able to raise almost $2000 that evening, with the help of all of our Sponsors and Supporters. Wow! 😀
I definitely had big dreams for GWAPR when I first started the organization, but I am truly humbled to see how many people have come together to support my mission.
The reality is that, GWAPR would not be what it is today without all of the help and support of family, friends, colleagues, our wonderful volunteers and generous sponsors.
I am eternally grateful to the time and dedication everyone has put into making this dream a reality, and I look forward to touching more lives as GWAPR continues to grow.
