If you read my previous post and now this one, you may be thinking to yourself, "What is this, obnoxiously gush about your family week?"
Didn't you get the memo? It's Blogger's, "Obnoxiously gush about your family week." Don't delay people, only 3 days left.
You also may be thinking, "Oh I can do this as well as you."
Hey! My 3 daughters are going to "Save the world, teach the world and paint the world."

A few weeks ago I posted about my daughter Erin and her dream of filming a documentary centered around a man named Frank Murithi and his dream of overcoming the devastation facing the children in the slums outside of Nairobi. He's using Kenya's national pastime to do this, RUNNING.

I first posted about her dream and then later posted about the web site she had set up. Now, this train is running full ahead. On the site Erin states,  "To generate support for the film, today we launched a campaign on Indiegogo, in partnership with our fiscal sponsor Fractured Atlas. Since the TUMAINI FILM PROJECT is a documentary about the transformative power of athletics, we thought there was no better way to build momentum than to run. So I recruited 15 crazy, wonderful people across the globe to commit to running 150 miles in 30 days (May 1- 30), with the goal of raising $15,000. We have runners in Washington, Pennsylvania, New York, Seattle, London, Dublin, Geneva, and Chengdu, China. We've already made this story global-- now help us make it a reality!" 

Since it is " Obnoxiously gush about your family week" I ask you to please take a moment to watch the 2 minute video. It's a real interesting story.

I thank you in advance.

I'm surprised you didn't use more exclamation points !!!!!! in your brag piece. As I said before, your daughters are awesome and deserve to be bragged on.

As for running, no can do, but I did contribute bucks to the sponsor.
