Call me superstitious…

If you have visited my “ABOUT” page, you’d know that I absolutely hate the number seven. I realized today that I have seven posts and seven widgets, which is completely unacceptable. Call me superstitious, but bad things tend to happen when number seven comes around. So here’s post number eight! That’s two in one day! You could say I’m on a roll, but really I’ve been slacking lately because of midterms and other things that make me busy, so this is makes up for my absence. I even have some items from my ToDo List that I’ve done and haven’t posted about yet. I promise that will come shortly because I have bigger plans for this post.

I’d like to point out a new widget (my eighth widget) to the right of your screen called “Social Vibe.” This is truly amazing because it’s a FREE DONATION! I bet you’re really confused right now. “How can I donate without giving away my money” you ask. But you see, it’s actually quite simple. All you have to do is click on the gray area at the bottom that says “CLICK HERE TO HELP FOR FREE,” then a screen will come up and you will see a blue square that says “Do an Activity” with an arrow. Click the blue square! Here comes the cool part. You do an activity, maybe 30 seconds of your time, and the sponsor organization (Diet Coke) will donate to my cause! How cool is that? I know your minds are blown. Only 30 seconds to donate and it doesn’t involve giving any of your money. You might think that this mere 10 cents doesn’t help, but trust me it does!

Let me take this opportunity to explain the cause I have  chosen to support. It’s called “Donate Life America” and their mission is to inspire people to save as well as enhance lives through organ, eye, and tissue donation. Copied straight from their website:

Donate Life America, comprised of national organizations and 50 state teams across the United States, assists in mobilizing the transplant community to educate the American public about organ, eye and tissue donation and motivate them to register as donors. It manages the Donate Life brand and develops brochures, programs, kits and promotional items. For nearly a decade, it has designed campaigns for departments of motor vehicles, the general public and multicultural audiences and leads the Donor Designation Collaborative.

But don’t let me tell you everything about them, see for yourself what they are all about. Go to http://www.donatelife.net/ and become a donor, or just read about becoming a donor and decide later, whatever you want to do. I’m a registered donor, it says so on my driver’s license with that little red heart. Everyone should be a donor, there’s no reason not to be.
