Goats, gripes, and grasping for greatness
March of Dimes, week 2 
12th-Mar-2012 02:45 pm
This is my belated Week 2 report... We had our un-official kick-off here at work. It was a low-key event, given that the guest of honor cries in gratitude every time we get together and talk about it. The company started doing the March of Dimes March for Babies after one of the headquarters employees gave birth to a daughter who then died only a few hours after she was born. There's nothing more personal than coming face to face with someone who needed - and received - support from March of Dimes during her birth process.

So here I am, pounding the virtual pavement in support of healthy mothers and babies, and the entire family and support-system that gets them there. Thanks to tamarinne and elyth35 and melaniesuzanne (just today!) for their contributions! My pledge bar is moving!

... And I changed the photo to show GoatMuse actually looking at the world. See? He's a real human and sees you back!

I wanted to let you know that I also submitted a request for company match of my donation (it'll be the same amount as my donation). I submitted a company match for last year's contribution as well, but we never got confirmation back from MoD. Hopefully they'll confirm it this time around.

Wow! Thank you so much! ... I hope it works out correctly this time.
