My fabulous sister Amy Balbierz is currently training for the NYC Half Marathon that is on March 18th. She is running to raise money for the USO, an organization that is close to our family's heart.
My step-dad was deployed to Iraq during my junior year of college. I still remember crying on the subway when I heard the final word that he got back to the United States safely. It was quite an overwhelming and joyous feeling to know that he was really back after the length of his deployment.
With that little background, you can understand how proud that my sister is taking on this challenge.
If you would like to check out her USO page, you can visit her page here.
In an effort to help fundraise, I will be selling these heart pins on my etsy shop soon. I started production this weekend and am working out some final production kinks.
I will let you know when they are on the shop!
