I am just a paralegal who goes to work every day. Some days I’m really excited about going to work and there are days that I’m not so excited. However, I have a place to go every morning and do something that I cho0se and love to do.
While I sit here tonight, after a very long day at the office, I am trying to relax and watch the news about the latest occurrences in Japan. Earthquake, Tsunami and now the fire in the nuclear reactor. There’s a reporter on the news talking about how the after-shocks have not stopped and how stressful it is for the Japanese people. I cannot help but think about all the young women that would give anything to be able to get up tomorrow morning and head to the office just like I will. I have always heard about “paying it forward” and “he to whom much is given much is expected.” I cannot help but think that it is my time to finally pay it forward and give some hope to those who I’m sure are feeling like hope is lost.
I made a decision, sitting here on my couch. At the end of April I will be donating some money to help the people of Japan. I have a proposition to make to all of you. I will be opening up a PayPal account (I will let you all know when that’s done) and would like it if you sent money, it doesn’t have to be much, as much as you can spare, and I will send it to an organization of our choice. I would ask that with your donation you send me the name of your blog or website, in whose name you would like me to send the donation, and what organization you would like to have the money sent to. During the last week of April I will post all the organizations and the one that gets the most votes will be the one to whom we will donate.
As a thank you for your donation I will add your blog and/or website to my blog as well as invite you to be a guest blogger on my blog or I can be a guest blogger on your blog. Let’s see what we can do together.
I know this is unorthodox but I feel like we need to do something. Thank you so much in advance for participating and for the inspiration.
