Are you inspired to do something right away to raise funds for charity, especially as the New Year approaches? You don't have to wait to sign up for a walk-a-thon....you could walk or bike yourself or with friends in honor of a person or cause and to thank people for their generosity.
It's easy to set up a fundraising page at http://www.firstgiving.com/ from which you can collect donations for the charity of your choice. First Giving sends the funds raised directly to the charity. Then, on the day YOU choose, you and your friends can hit the road by foot or bike and know that you have made a difference!
