We are excited to take on this year’s Trailblaze Challenge – a 28-mile hike in one long day along the Pacific Coast Trail in beautiful Big Bear, CA.
In addition to the physical challenge, we have committed ourselves to raise $5,000 for Make-A-Wish to help grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses. Not only do I (Michelle) work there, Armando and I also volunteer for the LA chapter. We meet super cool kiddos and help grant their wishes! That said, this is a mission near and dear to our hearts.
Make-A-Wish grants thousands of unique wishes each year, but that’s only 50% of eligible kids. We're fundraising so more kids and their families can know the happiness, relief, and renewal a wish can bring.
Please support us and this great cause by helping us hit our Trailblaze Challenge fundraising goal. If you're still on the fence about supporting us or this cause, perhaps one of the following incentives will topple you over on the right side of the fence. Any amount you give will be MUCH APPRECIATED.
For a $25 gift, we'll call your mom and tell her how great you are. And because our hike will end on Mother's Day, we'll also let her know how great she is (on your behalf).
For a $50 gift, we'll pick out especially for you a surprise gift from the lodge we're staying at that weekend. It could be gold we panned from the flower bed. It could be a gently used bar of soap. Either way, you'll be surprised.
For a $100 gift, Armando will learn to sing/play a song of your choice and either 1) Record and send the song to you, or 2) Perform it for you LIVE. And shirtless. ...Oh sorry, guys. He said No. He said he'd still perform it live though, if you want.
For a $250 gift, Michelle will bake for you a sampler platter of HER FAVORITE cookies and bars.
For a $500 gift, Armando will take you ROCK CLIMBING at his rock climbing gym in LA!
For a $5,000 gift, tell us what you want us to do.
NOTE: If any of these incentives decrease your enthusiasm and/or willingness to contribute to this amazing cause, you can absolutely pass on these prizes. We will not be offended. Just grateful all the same. :)
