Some of you may be familiar with our friend Ro. If you aren’t, you should head over to her blog and get to know her. She’s pretty neat. To get you started, here’s her story. I’m not the type who cares all that much for tagging another human being an inspiration since that word gets thrown around far too often to describe people who are just trying to live their lives, but if I were, Ro would almost certainly make the cut. It’s pretty great to see how far she’s come in spite of where she’s been and where she is.
But enough about where she’s been. Let’s talk about where she’s going, or at least where she’d very much like to go.
Ro is without question the biggest Tampa Bay Rays fan I know. She’s also the only Tampa Bay Rays fan I know, but even if I knew more it would still be hard to imagine a bigger one. Anyway, pretty much since forever, she’s had this dream of being able to go to Tropicana Field to see a game. And because people are still pretty cool sometimes, her fellow Rays fans have been helping her out and it’s turned into a pretty neat fundraising thing that’s gone far beyond anything she expected.
Yes, here comes the pitch. You guys are smart.
If you’ve got a few dollars you’re not using and you want to do a nice thing for somebody who I can tell you is really going to appreciate it, this page will tell you everything you need to know. You’ll even be sending her to see a sure win, since the opposition will be the Blue Jays and they don’t exactly have the best of luck down at the Trop, unfortunately.
And if you don’t have anything to give, no worries. You can still help out by sharing that page with folks who might. Often that’s just as good as a donation.
Speaking of donations, I’m going to post this and then go make mine. Talk to you soon.
