You probably know that I am a board member and volunteer for the Arthritis Foundation, Virginia Chapter. One of my volunteer roles is to to perform as the chair of the Fredericksburg Arthritis Walk. This year the event is scheduled on Saturday, May 3rd.
I am going to be doing my personal fundraising for the event during the month of April. I have ordered and received personalized buttons to wear and display, drafted a letter to send to friends and family, and started to personalize my online donation webpage. I am also thinking about creating a "badge" that you can display on webpages and blogs.
Expect to see some blog posts during the month on the topic of arthritis and the Arthritis Foundation. I will let you know why I am involved and also share stories about some of my friends who have inspired me.
I look forward to sharing one of my passions with you. I hope you decide to support me in raising money and awareness for this worthy cause.

Make sure you send over the HTML code for a fundraising button.
I will add the button on my blog for you leading up to the event.
Roger just found this through yahoo’s new Pipes Social media tool in beta here –very cool
thanks for the mention on my buttons!
I’ve read about the fundraising blog “badges” and think they are great tools to use. There are also lots of sample fundraising letters online. Good luck.
Aside from the traditional fundraising letter, there is a wide array of amazing new fundraising tools available at our fingertips that you can try. You just have to allocate time and resources necessary to adopt and take advantage of the next generation online and mobile fundraising tools.
