Another Goal...

Saturday, October 19, 2013

I absolutely am fascinated with the Arts. I enjoy going to the theater to see live performances of plays, symphonies, and choirs, as well as special performances that are welcomed to the various venues that I like to frequent.

I have wanted to become a patron of these theaters and concert halls for quite some time.
Now, I think I will actually begin to work toward becoming a patron in deed.

I want to donate $1000 to the college near me sometime in the next year so I think I will begin to reward myself for my mileage by paying myself per mile or days that I work out (both in strength training and aerobics).

I think I will also see what I can come up with for fundraisers. Right now I'm thinking garage sale to start it off. I really am just beginning to think about it but this would be something I think I would really like to do. I think I might even give up my trip to Fallingwater except that my daughter wants to go with me.

Is there something that you working toward that is similar to organization that you are working to support?

    Research for a cure for Alzheimer's and cancer are near and dear to my heart. I've supported fund raisers, but have never thought about doing my own fund raising. My mind is pondering the thought now.

I've seen the stories of children having birthday parties, but instead of presents they ask for food for animal shelters. We could do an adult version of this. Children have also had lemonade stands and sold food at it. Maybe we need to follow the children.

    I think it is a way of giving to something you love. My belly dance instructor does a lot to help others as well. We are in a city full of arts festivals and such. We have arts in the heart, well the list goes on. Recently her beginner students did a show and they were great. Some of these places really need the help.

My husband and I like trail running and we support through charity races. there are lots of races that need volunteers and I'm considering that too.

Good idea, but all I can do is volunteer my time!
