Wanna Go Out and Play?

I live in a beautiful place.

It is a wonderful area surrounded by endless recreation possibilities during any season of the year.

I do, however, remember growing up in AZ.

I remember it being so sweltering outside that the metal slides would get so hot that they would sizzle your legs. I remember that we never had grass, only rocks and these horrible sharp sticker things we called goat-heads. I know what it was like to sit in front of the television because there were no other options.

That is why I am so excited to tell you about a friend of a friend who is making a difference in her community. This Illinois momma is working, well, running, to help upgrade the neighborhood park in her area and the park is in DESPERATE need.

Guess what? You can help!

How can you help you ask?

1. Stop by her blog dedicated to this project and pray!
2. Blog and link to her site! The more hits she gets, the more likely it is that she could get sponsors to help fund this project.
3. Donate! Every little bit of dinero helps!

Every parent knows how important a fun play place is, for their children. Every parent knows that to help avoid the increase of childhood obesity and diabetes, we need to be able to play with our kiddos! Hop on board and send ALL your friends over to help buy playground equipment for the kids of Thomosboro.

P.S. I just found out that Mama is expecting a new sweet baby! HOORAY! So, while she may not be able to run the soles off her shoes, the cause is still a worthy one, so don't forget to stop by her site and get the scoop.

  1. Thanks for the support Jesica! You are amazing. Also, I am still attempting to RUN the 5.5 miles...but it may turn into walking once my preggo belly comes in. :-) I have been training all year for a half marathon, but after our surprise decided 5.5 miles is a safer goal.


I love comments! Tell me what's on your mind!
