Happy March! I hope that you love local charities and donating as much as I do!
As some of you may know, I was in a friendly competition in December to become an "AmBADASSador" for a company, Uncommonly Normal. They are an amazing company, founded by wonderful friends of mine, that sell awesome merchandise to raise money for local charities. Here is a little bit about why this company exists.
"All of this was inspired by the legendary original badass herself, Anastasia Susko, who was always someone I admired and looked up to (even though she was at least 25 years younger than me).
And then she got sick. Like devastatingly, unfairly-make-you-want-to-hate-the-world sick. She incredibly became even wiser overnight. And tougher. And more courageous than anyone three, four, or five times her age. (She was 8, by the way.)
If she could face the most horrible fate imaginable, then I should be able to face any obstacle. If her family could survive this, I should be able to accomplish pretty much anything. If they carried on despite being afraid, then I can too.
I can never pay back Ana for what she taught me, but I can help carry on her legacy by contributing to her scholarship fund that helps graduating high school girls in Ana's hometown to get out into the world, overcome obstacles and achieve their dreams."

I won that competition back in December, thanks to all of my friends on Facebook for voting for me, and this month I get to have part of the proceeds from Uncommonly Normal go to a charity of my choice, as well as the Ana Susko Fund. I chose Turn to Us.
Turn to Us is a local non-profit that helps people with major or chronic illnesses in Carbon County and the Tamaqua area. Website! ---> www.turntousforhope.com/
Turn to Us was inspired by a childhood friend of mine, Amanda Theirer. She was one of the smartest and kindest souls I've ever had the chance of meeting. Everyone loved Amanda. (We still do!) She was diagnosed with with a soft tissue synovial sarcoma. Unfortunately, Amanda lost her short but grueling battle with cancer and is no longer with us. I'm doing this in her memory for anyone that may need assistance due to awful circumstances such as this.
You can read more about Amanda's story here. ---> http://turntousinc.org/inspiration/
This month I am asking, if you are able, to check out the items that are sold by Uncommonly Normal and grab a few for yourself and your family members. Everyone involved in this crazy and fun excursion are doing it for the memory of the people we love, and to help others who are in need.
