Support My Sustainable Super Bowl Sunday

Support My Sustainable Super Bowl Sunday

On February 3rd many of you will be watching the Super Bowl, but I will be participating in my first half-marathon of 2013, the Surf City Marathon located in Huntington Beach, California. As I did in 2012, I will be running for a cause that I strongly believe in and support. This is how I choose to use my voice, a voice for sustainability. This year, I am supporting Heifer International. They are a development organization and their mission is to work with communities to end hunger and poverty and care for the Earth.

Heifer gives families a hand-up, not just a handout. They empower many to turn hunger and poverty into hope and prosperity. They bring communities together and connect them with local markets; they help bring sustainable agriculture and commerce to areas with a long history of poverty. Funds donated help families around the world receive training and animal gifts that help them become self-reliant. Then there is the “Passing of the Gift”.  Recipients agree to share the offspring of animals with others in need, making them equal partners with Heifer in the flight to end world hunger. If that’s not sustainable business, I really don’t know what is.

I look forward to running at least three marathons this year to not only raise funds but to further raise awareness of this wonderful organization. So, this Super bowl Sunday, during one of the many commercial breaks, please take a moment and visit Heifer International.
