Help my friend raise money for the Virginia Special Olympics!(Plus crazy-talk)


December 18, 2012 by athenahm

*Not an actual picture of my friend. Kudos to these nutjobs, though.

Friends, Romans, Countrymen! Lend me your ears!  When you are military, you form some very strong bonds with people at each base, and they stay in your hearts, and lives forever after.  One such individual, my dear, dear, crazy friend, Ashley, is going to subject herself to freezing cold water, and then run a damn 5K to raise money for the 2013 Special Olympic in Virginia.  In February. In the Atlantic Ocean.  Yup.  She is in desperate need of some financial support for this endeavor, so what do you say? Can you help a lady out? I would be eternally grateful. So grateful, in fact, that if you donate and report it back to this post, I will do something crazy especially for all of you that stepped up.  Make sure you comment here after you donate, guys!  If you donate AND share this post, I will not only do the aforementioned crazy stunt(that I have not thought up yet), but I will add another, more personal token of thanks(also not dreamed up yet). So be sure to comment with what you did. Thanks in advance, because I know I have some amazing followers out there who will do the right thing.  I promise to keep you updated on her progress and what my happy ass is going to do to appease the masses. Got a suggestion as to what epic stunt I could pull? Possibly with video, involved? Let me know in the comments!  Be evil.  It makes me happy.
