Alissa/Jill - Yes you can get more tshirts after the walk if needed. There are also some WAT coordinators who have more tshirts than they will need so we will certainly be able to distribute those as well.

Good idea, Jill! The neat thing about the money that's coming in is that it's coming mostly from people who my parents were friends with when they were my age! (Military family - close friends all over the country.) Some of them remember me from when I was Nicky's age, and want to help because of that. One of the donations came from my 7th grade teacher in California.

Alissa: Jaime, please correct me if I'm wrong, but yes, we can get t-shirts to folks after the walk, if neccessary.

Laura: What I really meant to say is that you are inspiring! We love you!

Aimee: I love what your mom did! I'm going over to the fundraising page right now and starting a new topic: "How have you requested donations on behalf of PF?"

The last few days have generated a lot of interest in the walk. If for some reason I run out of t-shirts will the walkers who sign up that day and didn't get a t-shirt still get one later on? I just want to be sure I get the facts straight. I don't anticipate running out but it would be nice to be able to tell them the right thing if for some reason I do.

Laura, hon, you can have one!!! I'm one of only two registered members in Georgia who is able to work on the walk this year, and the other (Hi Jenn!) is far away. Pretty much everyone showing up is someone I know personally. Like Jaime said, even if it's only 10 people, it's something!

My mother did a great thing. She printed up a little card saying, "Do you remember March 24, 2000? We do." She put a picture of Nicky on there, the story of the Foundation, and a registration brochure. She sent it to everyone on her Christmas card list, and so far we've gotten a couple of hundred dollars from that list.

[:I]Ack! I didn't mean it as a directive! I just thought that meeting up even informally at the walk-a-thon would be a grand way to get a chapter rolling! I just wish there were registered members around me so that we could have one around here... Jill, I'm just amazed at how you've just taken to this GC stuff like a duck to water...

We can credit Laura for the fact that there is a WAT in Arizona this year! Earlier this year when I was brought on as AZ GC, Laura and I were e-chatting and she suggested I coordinate an AZ WAT. Well, Laura's "suggestions" seem like directions, and before I knew it I called Martina and asked her if she was game. Our goal was 20 walkers. It's three months later and we could see 70 walkers. I really lucked out. Around the time of the WAT announcement, AZ saw a number of very motivated PF members sign up. They are fantastic!

Hey Amiee, I kind of find myself thinking I should be doing more and raising more but then I think that most of the people walking are family and friends and their friends and then I see how many people stand behind me when I believe in something so strongly. It is unbelieveable to see all those people that are so willing to help you out. I remind myself that this is the first year and it can only get bigger and better from here. Hang in there-we are all doing great and am so honored to be a part of this!!!

Hi All,

Wendy - I got your email today and talked to Alli. I'm not sure why the shipment required a signature. If they were shipped back they were likely sent to the printer in Chicago. I'll call him in the morning and give him a heads up. Don't worry! It will get straightened out!! [:D]

Aimee - I echo Jill's comments. Remember when we started this our goal was 20 cities with 50 people!!! So no matter what - even if there are only 10 people walking with the t-shirts - it is worth it!! It is all about Awareness!!

Laura, thanks!!! Too funny, I'm using the term Virtual Walker as a regular part of my registration process down here. I'll e-mail you. Being an XXL myself, I just happened to order a couple. ;)

Jill, thank you so much for the encouragement. I must admit, hearing the large registration numbers at some of the other sites had discouraged me a bit, but I keep reminding myself that I am one person doing what I can down here. BIG hugs back to you!
