A few weeks ago my sister signed up for the Unity Walk to raise money for Parkinson’s Queensland. Her initial goal, quite modestly, was raising $500 in sponsorship.
By last Sunday, when she started the walk, she’d raised $2185, most of that in the seven-day period between her first putting the link up on Facebook and now. According to the Unity Walk website, she was the second highest individual fund-raiser in the state.
I know a bunch of people donated after reading about the walk on this blog. Some did it openly, some anonymously, and everyone did so generously.
We wanted to say thank-you. You people, you all rock in the hardest and most rocking-est kind of way.
