I just signed on as a new Grassroots Fundraiser for the Lance Armstrong Foundation, choosing LIVESTRONG™ to be the sole beneficiary of a portion of the proceeds from all book sales of Pure Soapbox.  Having been both intimately affected by cancer and seen friends also go through the trauma of this deadly disease, I view this as a one-of-a-kind opportunity to directly help this world-renowned charity and further inspire the global community to donate to the fight against cancer. Additionally, my websites, including PureSoapbox.comKimberlieDykeman.wordpress.com , will have a direct link to my own LIVESTRONG™ Fundraising URL so visitors can freely post their own donations online, both in honor and anonymously.
