For My Family.

Cystic Fibrosis (also known as CF) is a common hereditary disease which affects the entire body, causing progressive disability and often early death. *wikipedia*

I have 3 cousins with this disease. I am a carrier of this disease.

I received an email from one of my cousins yesterday. It goes like this:

" Hi Erin! I hope you had a happy Mother's Day! Your baby is so cute! I would like to ask for your help with fundraising for CF. Here is the information:

As you know, my sisters and I were diagnosed with CF a few years ago. Although, research has improved the lives of those living with CF, we are still a long way from a cure.

Our friend, Stan Shaw is cycling for my sisters and I this year in Gearup4cf. The ride leaves from Vancouver and finishes in Banff 9 days later. Stan hopes to help find a cure for CF, but cannot do this without your support. You can follow his journey on his blog.


You can find our story and photos in his journal by clicking on this link:


Donations can be made on the CF Foundation's secure website:


Thank you for your support!"

I will be supporting this cause because I want to see my cousins live long and happy lives.

I will be supporting this cause because I believe in sharing what little I have with those who need it more then I do.

I will be supporting this cause because it is my family...and I love them.

Will you help by supporting them too??

Frugally Yours,
Erin B.

Frugal Fact:
Supporting charitable events/activities is great and frugal! I fully, 100% support this. Often, if you donate more then $15 you'll get a tax receipt. I'm also a firm believer in 'give some, get some'...I don't know what I'll get, and to be honest, it doesn't really matter to me- but I feel better knowing that I've helped out, even if it is just a little bit. Did you know that the richest people in the world donate more then HALF of their salaries to charities a year. Could you do that? Everyone starts with nothing, the Power of Now is actually going out and doing something about it.
