Hey Gang!

I know I haven’t been writing in here lately. I hope to change that, but I have been busy moving on with life Post Grad. It’s hard because the job market in my field isn’t doing well. So I have moved to Florida and am working part time for Disney in hopes of going full time and into something more important like management or entertainment.

Anyways the real meaning of this post to let you guys know that I have changed my Social Vibe cause. While I still support To Write Love On Her Arms and think that you all should support it too, I have decided to change my cause to the American Diabetes Association cause. This cause is near and dear to my heart for many reasons, the main on being that my dad has been in the struggle with Diabetes since the age of 21. He’s now well into his 40s (sorry dad) and has a pump, but he still crashes. Lately, he took a really hard crash and it really hit home for us as a family. It’s scary when someone you know turns into a different person because their sugar is too low. ┬áMy dad, usually a stern but fun guy, gets really giddy and way out of whack. You know when something is up. My dad has not only be in battle with Diabetes but also with Cushings Disease. We are very lucky to have him with us each and every day and I hope that he is alive for many more years to come. Right now, while they are finding a cure, we have to support them in their search. We have to support the advancement of medicine and research. We have to support the families of those who are battling diabetes as well and those who are struggling themselves. So please take the time to visit click the like on the side and support this awesome cause.

Also, it doesn’t hurt to become aware of Diabetes so be sure to check out the ADA’s website!

Thank you so much guys for helping me help this amazing cause (as all the causes on Social Vibe are)!

As you all know, I am very passionate about finding ways to change the world. I love charities and charity events! I love raising money for good causes!

WordPress and Social Vibe have teamed up to help bloggers raise money for charities. While there are only a select number of charities there is probably one that you can relate to or are passionate about. I chose To Write Love On Her Arms an organization that serves as a crisis and suicide prevention organization. It is very popular with lots of young teens taking action through it. You can help support this organization that I have chosen by clicking the link on the side.

So what are you waiting for? All you bloggers out there using WordPress get this widget and support a charity! It’s time to make a difference.
