In less than 48 hours, I will be in Sunny California...getting a needed dose of inspiration from Six Feet of Sunshine! ;)
Today...I am struggling to stay on top of all that is going on...but gratefully am running on adrenaline like nobody's business!
The event is taking shape...but still a lot to do and lots of planning, fundraising and details to complete.
I know you are probably tired of hearing about it...BUT...here is link to how you can help and a link to register to join us for some really great family fun.

Recently, I provided a little insight into one of our chosen charities...Cy Hope.
Tonight...I would like to share with you a bit about The Good Tidings Foundation:
As most of you know, this Journey is inspired by Kerri Walsh Jennings, a native of the Greater San Francisco area. She has been involved with Good Tidings for quite some time and I chose the charity to honor her and her amazing generosity.
Good Tidings is a children's charity "that looks to equally support Arts, Education, Athletics and Dreams for you from communities of need".
They build youth athletic facilities and art studios in lower income communities and they grant over $100,000 in community service scholarships annually.
They have constructed over 100 athletic facilities including basketball, baseball and sand volleyball (Kerri's Courts) courts/fields. Including:
47 Basketball Courts
24 Tennis Courts
34 Baseball Fields
3 Football Fields
3 Fitness Centers
3 Volleyball Courts
They opened the Leroy Neiman Art Center which provides free art instruction for low-income students.
In 2014, Good Tidings will be building additional art studios throughout the Bay Area.
Additionally, Good Tidings offers "Rock Star Road Trips" mentoring programs for the kids. These programs allow kids to meet, talk and learn from "influential professionals and leaders in their respective fields on daylong outings to inspire and encourage them to dream big."
These are just a few of the great things done on behalf of kids that need hope, need support and that will flourish if given the chance to do so.
I hope you will take a minute to check out Good Tidings at the below link:
I am proud that I have the chance to contribute to both Good Tidings and Cy Hope. I believe that when we invest in our kids, that we in fact, invest in our Future!
Blessings and Good Tidings to YOU!
