So today I finally went to Staples and had some ribbons copied on pink paper. Then I wrote some "In honor of" names ... cut them out ... and had them laminated. Just wanted to see how they would look. I'm going to be wearing these ribbons on my walk (a little hole punched at the top and some kind of toggle closure will keep them attached to my waist pack) Tomorrow I'll display them at school. What do you think I should ask for as a donation? $5.00? $10.00???
Meanwhile ... all my donors who have made a donation "in honor of" or "in memory of" will have a ribbon ... and, after the walk, I will send them out.
Nice huh? I've seen walkers carrying ribbons and was always impressed.
The countdown has begun. It's less than 2 weeks!!! YIKES! I'm so excited!


  1. oh what a lovely idea!!!

  2. Sweet idea - I lost my mom 3 years ago!

  3. Ahhhh...that's awesome!!! I'm also walking SF, but with all the donations people have given, and with us leaving for CA this Saturday, I just decided to do the ribbons (not sure what style yet), and not charge for donation. Next time I will though.

    Hey, here's an idea...maybe you're already thinking this. Take a Sharpie & when they pay to have you walk for their loved one, they can actually write the name of the person right on the lamination.

    See you in SF...
