It's my birthday and I am gonna "party like it's my birthday." (haha) Well, last year was the first time I didn't throw a birthday party in 6 years so this year, we are going to double it up to catch up on what I missed last year. Let's do a Theme Party - Masquerade Part-e! I already purchased the masks. I bought 240 plain ones and 50 pretty cute ones - feel free to bring your own!
There will be a live band besides a game or two to get everyone in the party mood. Let's part-e! :)
So, what can I do this year to give back? Some of you might know I enjoy volunteer work and giving back to my community. This year, I chose the organization, Big City Mountaineers that mentors intercity youth through the outdoors. I plan to "summit for someone" and climb Grand Teton in August 2013 - http://www.summitforsomeone.org/donate?page=4&climber=8618 (click on link to donate. Thx).
What may I ask you to help with? Please donate at least $10 per person; if you donate more than $25, I have a spiffier mask calling your name! :) Or, you can give me $5 for a spiffier mask the day of my birthday celebration. In case you didn't know, your donation is tax deductible. :) Now, of course, you will have to donate prior to the event (THANK YOU).
I really appreciate your donation. In case you didn't know, the kids you are helping out, 83% of them are from families under poverty line. I love the outdoors and wish the money we raised can put a child one step closer to Mother Nature! Thank you again for your donation and let's have a great time. :)
