It was a simple dream. Ever since I had moved back to San Fran many years before I had wanted to start a blog to chronicle my inspirations. Thanks to the campaign, I finally started writing Not Merely Living. In two years time, it has grown and changed and evolved. It has become so much more than just a simple hobby. It has become my passion.
The beauty of the At The Crossroads I Think I Can Campaign is that in addition to raising much needed funds to support homeless youth, it also inspires people to pursue their own tucked away, unattended dreams. As a part of their “I Think I Can” campaign, friends and supporters can choose a personal goal they would like to accomplish and then ask their friends and families to support them by donating to an awesome cause–At The Crossroads! It’s like supporting a friend who is trying to run a marathon or bike 150 miles for a good cause, but the participants get to choose their own goals.
At The Crossroad’s mission is “to reach out to homeless youth and young adults at their point of need, and work with them to build healthy and fulfilling lives.” They are making a significant impact on the lives of homeless young people in San Francisco.
I took a year off from the campaign last year to plan our wedding, but this year I am all in. When I was trying to choose my goal, I tried to think of something that I would really enjoy and something that was on my life list. Sooo I came up with the perfect goal of learning to Country Line Dance. I’m not even joking. This is going to be amazing. I hope you are as excited about this as I am, because you should be.
