Lake Miramar; 2015 Bloomin’ Uterus Endometriosis Walk

Our Endometriosis Awareness & Support Walk is coming up on March 26, 2016!  It’s time to pick up the clipboard and wrap up some planning .

All funds raised for our walks are directly donated to the Endometriosis Foundation of America.  We don’t receive one red cent.  And we like it that way!  And for every $10 raised, I will walk one mile for our 2016 walk.  And…NEVER feel obligated to donate. We don’t want that…

Fundraising:  We’ve currently raised $2,113.22 out of our $2,500 goal ($1,852.77 of this total was raised for our 2015 walk).  That means for our 2016 Walk, we’ve raised a total of $260.45!  We’d like to raise at least another $387 to reach our $2,500 total goal (although it’s perfectly fine if we don’t make our goal…or surpass it).

Bloomin' Uterus buttons

Button Sales: The Bloomin’ Uterus button sales have always been open, but now it’s time to start pushing them again.  For just $2, you can own your very own reminder that you will endure, you will flourish, and you ARE still beautiful, despite this disease.  Or wear it as a show of support.  Want one (or more)?  You can donate here.  Disclaimer: Gofundme and Wepay take a small percentage of your donation; the rest is donated to the Endometriosis Foundation of America.  And your donation may be tax deductible!

T-Shirt Sales:  Our t-shirt (and hoodies) are only available once or twice a year for a small window of time.  So if you’d like one, keep your eyes open for the Sales Announcement!  We plan on opening the sales in February, and all t-shirts/hoodies will be shipped to you prior to our March 26th walk, keeping prices as close to $20 as possible.  There will be two designs available (Option A and Option B).  Roughly $5 from every shirt sold is donated directly to the E.F.A. (last year, $142.78 was donated from t-shirt sales alone).  Love our blog?  Attend our support group meetings? Walking with us in March?  Just want a Bloomin’ Uterus on your uterus?  By all means, wear the shirt (I like to wear mine when I go in to see my gyno…ha).  And it’s such a fun conversation starter!

Donations: Don’t want the buttons or the shirts, but just want to donate?  You can donate here.  Disclaimer: Gofundme and Wepay take a small percentage of your donation; the rest is donated to the Endometriosis Foundation of America.  And your donation may be tax deductible!

Want to Walk?  Come one, come all!  If you’ll be in the San Diego area that day, we’d love to have you!  Register here.  It’s freeeeee.  Also, please register if you’ve already RSVPed on Facebook, but haven’t technically registered on this site.

Want to Join our Walk but Don’t Want to Raise Money?  I don’t want you, or anyone, to feel obligated to raise money or donate.  But would still LOVE to have you join us in March!  Registration is required, but our walk is FREE and obligation-free.  Register here.  Please register if you’ve already RSVPed on Facebook, but haven’t technically registered on this site.

Want to Donate but Can’t Afford It?  That’s also perfectly okay!  We’ve all been there.  And I appreciate you SO much!  If you’d like, feel free to share any of these links, or if you know someone in the area who may want to walk, please let them know.

Media: We are presently working on a press package to help extend our local awareness outreach. Woohoo!

If you have any questions or concerns about the walk or any of these fundraising efforts, please feel free to contact me or leave a comment.  We’re very excited!

Yours,

Lisa

    1. Thank you!!!! You can go to http://www.gofundme.com/endendo and donate there. One button is $2, two is $4, etc. 🙂 Once I receive the confirmation, I’ll drop you a private email to get your address, etc. And your donation is helping, too! In big ways! I never imagined things would take off the way they have, and I’m ever so grateful for the support 🙂 And to fact that we are not alone in this fight!
