Thanksgiving Challenge

November is one of my favorite months in the year for many reasons. First of all it is my birthday month which makes it special. Also it is the month we celebrate Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday because we celebrate all that we have without spending money and causing ourselves stress like with some other holidays. Thanksgiving is also a time when most families get to be together.
Even though Pops and I will not be home for Thanksgiving this year we got to spend some time with our family this month. I appreciate our family and realize that family is the most important thing that you can have.

November is also National Diabetes Month.
Diabetes is a disease that has touched both mine and Pops' side of the family. It is ultimately the major factor in my mothers death at the age of 56.
I am offering up this challenge: We now have 20 followers to our blog. I am willing to contribute $5.00 to the National Diabetes Foundation for each new follower that we pick up during this Thanksgiving week.
Please help Pops and I fight this dreaded disease and at the same time be an encouragement to he and I as we spend our time on the road away from our family.
Challenge begins now and ends Saturday, November 27th at midnight.

Can I un-follow and then re-follow? Does that count? :)
