2015 Bloomin’ Uterus Endo Awareness & Support Walk

The Bloomin’ Uterus Endometriosis Awareness & Support Walk is only six months away! Six months!

With that exciting realization, I followed up with the Endometriosis Foundation of America this morning to check on the progress of their 2014 financial audit.  As you are likely aware, any funds I raise for the walk are donated directly to the Endometriosis Foundation of America.  Gofundme, in partnership with Wepay, take their small percentage of each donation for a service fee, but the rest of the funds go to the EFA.  I don’t see one cent.  The same is true for any Bloomin’ Uterus t-shirt sales (these will go live again in late January 2016) – 100% of the profits are directly donated to the EFA.  I, again, do not see one penny.  I wanted to make sure that your (and my) donations actually went toward research, education, and awareness.  Not my pocket.  Not venue fees.  Just exactly where it should be going: education and research.

But, on to the good news!  If you have purchased a Bloomin’ Uterus button, donated to the walk fundraising, or purchased a Bloomin’ Uterus t-shirt, rest assured that your donations are going toward helping spread awareness and research for our disease.  Last year, 84.4% of each dollar donated directly funded the EFA’s education, awareness and research programs.  Eighty-four percent!  That’s fantastic!  And again makes me feel so confident that I am supporting the right organization.

What the heck am I talking about?

Thank you, everyone, for your ongoing emotional and financial support!  This has been such an amazing experience!

Yours,
