Positive Thinking Day events benefit the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation. I want to share the reason that we chose this foundation to support with Positive Thinking Day. After Christopher Reeve's accident in 1995, I was so deeply touched by his attitude. He exuded a positive attitude that helped me realize that we each really do CHOOSE our attitude. No matter what happens to us, we can choose positive thoughts and choose a positive attitude.
Several years ago, my mother gave me a Superman Tag. She purchased some to help support the Christopher Reeve Foundation. I attached it to my purse and carry it with me every where I go. It reminds me to stay positive and to Go Forward. It helps me connect with Superman's positively powerful attitude.
When we began organizing Positive Thinking Day events, my sister (my business partner) and I immediately thought about the Christopher Reeve Foundation. We wanted to help in some way. We decided to donate 50% of our (ipopin.com) proceeds from this event to the Foundation.
Here is a bit from the Foundation's website about Christopher Reeve:
"What I do is based on powers we all have inside us; the ability to endure; the ability to love, to carry on, to make the best of what we have – and you don’t have to be a ‘Superman’ to do it."
"When Dana whispered those life-saving words to me, ‘You’re still you. And I love you,’ it meant more to me than just a personal declaration of faith and commitment. In a sense it was an affirmation that marriage and family stood at the center of everything, and if both were intact, so was your universe."
Christopher defied conventional wisdom. As a result of his courage, determination, international renown, and his conviction that ‘nothing is impossible,’ Christopher initiated a sea of change. Through his leadership, the Christopher Reeve Foundation (CRF) was born and grew exponentially re-shaping the world of spinal repair research. Under his guidance, CRF’s research programs have tripled and today spans from very basic science (molecular and cellular research) to clinical application (testing and delivering promising therapies to patients). Research dollars can hardly keep up with the momentum that he has ignited.
It is an honor and a pleasure to be contributing to the Reeve Foundation! Please help us raise money for this wonderful cause by making a purchase at www.ipopin.com before September 15, 2007. Remember, you will receive the Positive Thinking Power Pack for free if you spend $9 or more! 50% of the proceeds will go directly to the Foundation.
