Fundraiser

I’ll be walking on March 25, 2017, to raise funds and awareness for Endometriosis. Feel like sponsoring a mile? Any donation helps! Click Here to donate.  For every $10 raised, I pledge to walk 1 mile.  I’d LOVE to raise more money than the goal…together we can do this!  All funds go straight to the Endometriosis Foundation of America. Doing what I can to help fund a cure for what ails me…

Our first Endometriosis Awareness walk occurred on March 28, 2015.  Our walk raised $1,765 (gofundme.com), $16.81 (goodsearch.com), and $70.96 (teespring.com), totaling $1,852.77 for the Endometriosis Foundation of America.  In 2016, we raised $2,037.35 for the E.F.A. (I’m STILL walking for those funds raised).  Rather than start a new fundraiser page for 2017, I simply increased the goal amount.

To donate to the 2017 walk, you can do so directly on the site at www.gofundme.com/EndEndo.  A $2 donation buys you a Bloomin’ Uterus button!  A $10 donation can score you one of a very limited amount of yellow skull charms.  We’ll also be running another set of Bloomin’ Uterus t-shirts through teespring.com in early 2017.

What’s this Bloomin’ Uterus business?!? My nurse once described Endometriosis like crab grass…it just lives there and grows and grows and grows, despite how much you cut it out. So I felt disgusting and gross on the inside…until I created the Bloomin’ Uterus! A fun coping mechanism, and spreading Endometriosis Awareness along the way.  What started as just a picture morphed into a button, which is now traversing the globe! 🙂

Also, if you like to write: GiGiMarie Stationary and Bloomin’ Uterus are tag teaming Endometriosis awareness and fundraising! GiGi created a beautiful painting after her own diagnosis with Endo, and is now offering 160 page journals for $40. 15% of the proceeds will be donated directly to The Endometriosis Foundation of America through my gofundme campaign (www.gofundme.com/EndEndo) and the buyer will also receive a Bloomin’ Uterus button from me! I love GiGi’s work, this painting, and this journal! Feel free to pass this info along to someone who think may want one. Thanks, GiGi for this amazing opportunity!
