This is Alise, she was one of my best friends in highschool and if it’s not obvious from the pictures, she’s pretty bad ass. She has the opportunity to model and went into the military anyways and I can’t even begin to describe how much I admire this woman.
She’s been in Afganistan for what seems like forever. I can’t imagine what that’s like, I won’t pretend to know but despite what I’m sure is crazy intense, she’s still finding time to organize "Troops Wear Pink" A Susan Komen 5k in afganistan.
She’s only trying to raise 500$ for this and I’m positive everyone on tumblr knows how powerful just a few dollars can be when all of us get together on something. I’m not a huge fan of Susan Komen but I AM a huge fan of Alise and that’s more than enough reason for me to donate and ask you all to get involved too.
From her Komen page:
Troops wear Pink is a great way for everyone overseas to help fight Breast Cancer. All we are asking is for small donations, run a 5K, or wear pink to show your support with the fight against Breast Cancer. Everyone knows someone that has been affected by someone who has breast cancer so let’s do our part and help fight! All proceeds will go to the Susan G. Komen foundation.
So, here’s what I’m asking… head to her donation page and contribute a dollar or two OR reblog this with a pink ribbon (she says if you can’t donate, wear a ribbon!). More than anything I’d like to show Alise that people support her because she deserves it.
Right now she’s got
0.00 50.00 125.00 175.00* dollars. Let’s get this thing moving.
*of the money donated, most of it came from Alise, that’s not cool guys. She shouldn’t have to donate to her own cause, not when I know we can do better.
If I don’t get money going on this I’ll make some camo & pink bows to sell and donate the proceeds to. I’ll probably do that anyways because I think she deserves to raisemore than five hundred dollars. I really hope you guys agree.
(and guys, I don’t just post these things, you’ll find my name in the donation list.)
