Call Me Sac Religious....

The Mommies group that I organizer set up lemonade stands this past weekend to raise money for charity. The foundation is: Alex's Lemonade Stand, a great cause helping fund research for pediatric cancer.

We tried to get the local media involved to help raise our donation totals to an obscene all time high.. think big, baby!

I was all excited to hear that one local station wanted to come down and interview me. I prepped myself with statistics to look knowledgeable, and we waited. They never called, they never showed... Must have been "bumped" by a big news story, it happens.

As I'm watching the news on Sunday, I notice that we were bumped by a story on a bunch of kids that hosted a "waterless" car wash, to raise money to go to church camp.

Are you kidding me?

That's a bigger story?

As I 'm discussing this with Hubby, he says "it's probably not right for me to make a judgment on what's more important" Again, I ask?

Are you kidding?

I am Completely appalled that he would not know that anything I'm involved in is obviously way more important, just because.

He continues to talk about these kids getting a chance to go to camp, learn about God.. That's a good thing right? Of course it is, but better than helping kids with cancer? I think not. So I say.. "At least those kids get to go to camp, the ones we are trying to help will most likely DIE if there isn't enough funding to research their cancer"

Ha! Take that, my charity is more important that yours. Hubby says "See? I really should not judge the importance of these charity's with you" Ha, again. I win. Take that church camp.

I failed to generate any media attn. I suck. It's my fault. I just know it is.
