Each May when my birthday rolls around, I quote Mickey Mantle by saying, “If I knew I was going to live this long, I’d have taken better care of myself.” It can be a little stressful thinking about all the years that have flown by, but of course, it does beat the alternative. This year I found a wonderful way to make my birthday even more meaningful. I learned to make this a life-changing birthday by donating my special day to help wounded Veterans.
Some of WCC’s amazing supporters have already discovered that Facebook allows you to dedicate your special day by creating a birthday fundraiser. I couldn’t believe how easy it was! In five simple steps (and less than five minutes), I filled in my information, chose WCC as the beneficiary, set a goal, picked a photo, and posted my fundraiser.
While I would be honored and humbled to have you support my birthday fundraiser, more importantly—I’m asking that you, too, consider making a commitment each and every year to dedicate your birthday to honoring the sacrifice of our nation’s Veterans. Just think of the impact we could all make together if every WCC Facebook follower had a life-changing birthday! You can find instructions on how to set up your Facebook birthday fundraiser to support Veterans through WCC’s service dog training programs on the WCC Facebook page here.
Thanks for making my day extra special and for your support of WCC’s critically important work.
May the 4th be with you and all of us!
