Saturday morning I’m walking a 5K for the Hubbard House here in Jacksonville. The Hubbard House is this amazing place that I had the honor of visiting a couple of years ago when we did a small fundraiser for them. The mission of Hubbard House is Every Relationship Violence-Free. They have all sorts of resources for women, men, and families who are dealing with domestic violence. The programs and the opportunities they have – well let’s just say it still makes me teary to think about it all.
So I should have set up a fundraising page ages ago. But I didn’t. But I still would love to have some donations so that this short walk I’m doing on Saturday morning will be more than just symbolic. I’ve set up a fundraising page – if you can donate, every little bit helps.
If you would like to walk there is no cost, and there is no minimum donation. I would love to have folks to walk with! It’s only a 5K (3.1 mile) walk and it should be a beautiful day for it. It is this Saturday morning. More details about the walk can be found here. Leave a comment and I’ll e-mail you back so we can coordinate walking together!
And if you’re a knitter I’ll make donating even easier. Everything (yes, everything!) in the PicnicKnits pattern store is 25% off! And for the rest of this week until Saturday’s walk, 50% of my profits will go to my fundraising for the Hubbard House. It really is a worthy charity, and trust me if you were dealing with a domestic violence problem you would want a place like this to exist for you and your family.
