Tomorrow, I'm going to be doing a fundraising walk for the National Eating Disorders Association in Williamsburg, Virginia.
I've pledged my support, and now I'm asking you to help pledge yours. All donations to NEDA are tax-deductible, and you can make a donation at my fundraising page. No amount is too little. Anyone who donates in any amount will be entered in a raffle (okay, let's be honest- it will be me and a random number generator, but still) to win an autographed copy of my book Next to Nothing.
That's right. Donate a nickel or some belly button lint and you have a chance at winning a book. Seriously. It's that easy. I know times are tough financially right now, so don't feel bad if you aren't able to spare the money. I feel guilty asking my wonderful readers for donations, but it's a cause I believe in, so I'm swallowing my guilt.
I will post pictures of the walk tomorrow afterwards. I thought about seeing if Aria would behave on a leash, but I'm thinking that taking my cat would be a losing battle.
Thank you all for your support!

Drop me a line!
