I forwarded a draft of my blog post that kicked off the campaign to an amazing friend named Patricia. Patricia and I have done a lot together…like, all of Iceland.
But Patricia’s chief love in life isn’t me (alas)…it’s my dog, Athena.
So when I told Patricia that I had this sort of weird idea to raise money for a rescue organization, even though I had said “You don’t need to donate, just help me spread awareness (because I don’t think the people you know will dare me to do dangerous things for money)”, she immediately Venmo’d $35 with the following dare.
…and this is why I love Patricia.
Well, looks like it’s time to finish off a dare! Check out the results of the #MyPart4Syria fundraiser for the ECRI on my Instagram 📷 sigmaism, on Facebook, and occasionally on Snapchat 👻 sigmaism.
