This is a double post from General in case people don't see it there.

I hope this message does not anger or upset anyone. My heart truly is here. I WANT to fundraise for this website. I WANT to help people and make a difference.

However, my family is the most important thing to me and because of their concerns (possibly legitimate, I am not sure) I will be unable to organize and head up the So Cal Walk unless 1) I get a firm committee of people willing to take on certain tasks (flyers, making calls to sponsors, raffle tickets, food, etc, etc) AND 2)the insurance is not taken out solely by me. I can't do it unless the insurance is in a few names or an organization name. Basically it cannot be all on my shoulders, I have to share the event and not have it just be "Andrea" doing it. My husband, inlaws, and parents all feel strongly about this. (My parents both worked in insurance law, and hence are more sensitive to the responsibility of this kind of thing)

If this is not possible, and I understand that people are busy and it is a big undertaking to sign up for, then I will DEFINATELY still do some sort of fundraising effort, I just cannot head up the walk.

I truly hope you understand and are not disappointed me. I don't know what to say. I never did anything like this, I had tons of ideas, I want to do it, but I guess I can understand my family's viewpoint and my family comes first.

I'm so sorry, I've been "missing in action" for awhile, here. Things with my job are heating up, and I've been travelling, too. In any case, please accept my apologies for not being around to be of any help lately! I am reading many posts for the first time today, and this is one of them. Have you gotten any more offers of help? Please count me in. I see you have other ideas, so if the walk is not on the horizon, I would love to help you with the other project(s). (I'm thinking of the mailing.) Your enthusiasm and dedication are incredible. I see you are on a mini-vacation this weekend, and I hope you're having a wonderful time, getting away from all worries and relaxing with the new husband. You deserve it!
