By Marcie Barnes

Hello - I wanted to take this opportunity to welcome you to my blog. I started creating it last month as soon as I saw that it was an assignment for the class I am taking because I have already had the difficult experience of setting up two other blogs from scratch, and wanted to get a head start. Then I got carried away :). To learn more about me and this blog please visit the
About Me page.

By the way, any revenue generated from this blog will be donated to charity, and I need your help deciding which one. I would like for it to be something health-related, and of course charities like JDRF or The American Cancer Society come to mind, but I was wondering if there are organizations concentrating more on prevention than finding a cure? If you have any suggestions, please post them in the comments. Enjoy!

One idea for any funds you raise: the March of Dimes. I know it's not trendy (I even slipped the other night and called it the March of Dames), but it does seem to focus on prevention.
I haven't researched its overhead (how much goes to staff vs. how much goes to research and education efforts), but some people I respect at my daughter's school are working hard to raise money for it.
And because it's not trendy, it's also not very controversial.

Thanks Andria! I will look into that...
