Okay, here’s the deal, and the real reason why I’ve called this blog Autism Blues. Katie and the kids and I are going to be walking for autism research at the end of September, and we want to raise funds for the walk. We did this two years ago, and raised over $500.00 for Autism Speaks. Not too shabby, if you ask me. But this time, we’re setting a much higher goal. We want to go over the $1,500.00 mark.
Sound impossible? Well, there are two reasons why I’m not worried–a logical reason and a fun reason.
Here’s the logical reason: Two years ago, we were relatively late in signing up and letting folks know about the walk. We didn’t get the word out too well, and so not enough of our friends knew about it. So we’re starting pretty early this year, and we’re going to make sure everyone knows about the challenge. Makes sense, right?
But we all know that logic can take us only so far. So I’m sweetening the deal with a dare. Actually, I’m going to dare you to dare me. If you can get me over the $1,500.00 mark, I promise to dye my hair blue for the walk. Not the whole head, mind you, but a big blue puzzle piece right on the side of my head. That’s right: If I raise enough money, I’ll go blue for autism research. I’ll post photos and maybe even a video on this site so you all can see it. And who knows? I may even keep it in for the whole week after the walk!
