As I struggle yesterday with motivation, new ideas popped up in my head. How about doing this for a cause that I am passionate about? How about raising money for a cause? I like the idea of Team in Training although I am not ready to commit to running the NYC Half-Marathon.
Something popped up in my head, how about looking at something that I am passionate about and how I can make an impact back to the community. I am part of Lambda Theta Alpha Latin Sorority, Inc. and one my chapter’s signature program is P.A.L.M.A.S. program which is a year long mentorship and educational program for young Latinas in NYC. We provide these group of young woman with powerful workshops, assistance with the college admissions process. This is a program that I am passionate about and that makes me proud to be part of my chapter- Alpha Epsilon.
I turned it over to the universe. It indeed listened to me as I found a site in which you can work on a specific fundraising goal for a project and allows you to share it with others similar to Team in Training. The site is Crowdrise.org. It took me 5 minutes to create my site and I am slowly starting to set it up to provide all of the information it needs to motivate others to donate for my cause. I am working with my chapter sisters to go over the idea, information, how the funds would be use, etc.
