Chad Robin has to get from his family’s home in Louisiana to his internship in Oklahoma.
Some people would drive. Some people would fly. Chad is going to bike, along with his friend Russ.
He has turned the trip into the Ride 4 Relief, raising funds for the American Red Cross’s efforts in Japan’s earthquake/tsunami ridden areas.
Here in Tallahassee, an event is being held on Thursday, May 5, to “jump start” the fundraising efforts. On that day, the Bruegger’s Bagels at Carriage Gate will donate 15% of the proceeds of sales from 7 a.m. – noon! (Bruegger’s requires that you present this flier.) In addition, you can buy a $5 raffle ticket for a bottomless cup of coffee (meaning unlimited coffee/tea/soft drinks for a year!).
As Chad and I talked about how a Wordless Wednesday could promote the Bruegger’s event, I shared this image:
(I know, I know – “don’t quit your day job”!) But it was actually fun (and hopefully hubs won’t notice the crumbs in the keyboard – shhhhhhhhh.)
If you’re here in Tallahassee, start off your cinco de mayo with some yummy bagels and coffee. You’ll be helping a good cause!
