Community Outreach - I need sponsors

Every day, the YMCA touches the life of so many people by providing so many wonderful programs and services like child care, literacy programs, discounted membership, sports and camp scholarships and Camp Boomerang (a summer camp for children with autism). None of these programs would be possible without the support of people like YOU. I'm looking for SPONSORS for the Siskey YMCA Community Outreach Zumbathon. Please consider making a donation. A $1, $5, $10, $50...whatever you can, will be greatly appreciated. And if you work for a matching gift company, that's even better :-) Make your checks payable to the Siskey YMCA. If you are in another State or Country and still would like to contribute, you can send the money through my paypal. The event is on March 13th. I would need the donations by then. Thank you so much for donating!

I'm back!!!

I can't believe how long I've been away from the blogsphere!!! It's been a super hectic 2010 so far. I love it! I just wish my days were longer so I can do even more. It's so good to be back. First thing I found today was an amazing project for an orphanage in Haiti: Dolly Donations: Sending love, 1 dolly at a time! What else do I need to get my inspiration back and keep blogging? I can't wait to start making one of these dolls!!! I've already printed the pattern and I'm getting ready to select my fabric. I'm so excited! I'm already picturing the kids happy faces when they get their dolls. What a great satisfaction knowing that you can make a difference and give those kids hope and let them know that they are loved.

Last week, we had a little zumba gathering to raise money for Haiti. We raise $1,000. Here is a video of me and one of my favorite instructors leading the song "Pegate" by Ricky Martin. You'll notice that the video is edited because we were having technical problems. We ended up doing 3 times. That explains why I'm a little lost and without energy, lol It was so fun anyways!!! If you have time, look at the other videos posted by the same person. Those are all the videos from the zumbafest for Haiti. Here is a picture. I love it because it loos like if we are about to fly, :)

I also participated in the Charlotte Bobcats Halftime. Here is a link of a video I found on youtube. You can see me running to the court at 0:06 time. I'm the one with the sparkly headband. Yeah!!! I made my headband. That's how my family was able to recognize me from a mile away :) Oh, I think you can also see me around minute 2:14 next to the really tall guy.

Here is a picture!

All right guys, I better get going now. I promise to be a better blogger :)
