I’m about to let you in on a little known fact about me. In doing this I know I risk losing your friendship and respect, but I’m gonna go out on a limb and do it anyway because I just can’t help myself.
Besides, if you been around this blog long enough and read any of my fundraising posts you might have guessed it anyway.
Ready for it?
I was a cheerleader in high school.
Yes, it’s true. Even more surprising is the fact that I loved it. I adored it. (Okay, maybe you aren’t that surprised…) For 3 years I jumped, I tumbled, I clapped, I smiled, I wore a short little skirt and a bow in my hair. It was great. We were a competitive squad and each year we won the state cheer competition. We even got to compete in Nationals and go to Disneyland! I can’t begin to fathom that I did that. Ha! It almost makes me blush just thinking about it.
But…sometimes I feel the cheerleader in me begin to creep out and when that happens I just can’t help myself. I guess it’s just part of who I am. (The cheering, clapping, jumping and smiling part….not the short skirts and bows in my hair part. Just in case you needed clarification.)
Now is one of those times. I’m a cheerleader for Heath and I don’t care who knows it! 🙂
Do you realize Heath’s matching grant and giveaway was announced on Friday and since then almost $2,000 has been raised? What in the world???? I am amazed!!! I am excited!!!! I am cheering!!!!
We are only $3,020 away from meeting Heath’s matching grant goal and then he will be considered fully funded. That means a family can commit to adopting him and not be held back by finances at all.
This Saturday, September 15th is Heath’s day. There are Heath-Lovers all over the country doing fundraisers for him on Saturday. We are some of those people. We’re having a car wash!
Do you think the $3,020 can be raised this weekend? Do you??
I do!!! Get out the poms!
I’ll be cheering all the way with a big smile plastered on my face….cause I just can’t help myself.
Yeah…I’d show you a picture of my cheering days, but I don’t have a scanner. Darn. Ha.
