Runners are, for the most part, a kind, giving group. Today, more than ever, we can do what we love to do, and turn our performances into fundraising events.

My daughter, Kelly, ran her first marathon with the help of, and by raising money for, Team in Training, a funding arm of the Leukemia/Lymphoma Society. Since then, she and her husband, Mike, have raised thousands of dollars for this worthy cause.

If you are one of the many runners who have decided to pay it forward by raising funds for a charity, you realize that, in order to do so, takes quite a bit of effort.

Bake sales and garage sales, are sometimes just not enough.

Recently I heard about an excellent fundraising site that makes it easy and profitable for you to raise funds for your next event.

Hip Chix, , is "The Uncommonly Cool Fundraiser."

And it really is!

It's an easy online jewelry fundraiser that's simple to get started. Hip Chix creates a unique link for you to their fundraising site. Using that link you will be able to reach donors near and far. There are no up front costs, no collecting orders, money or delivering product. Hip Chix does it all for you.

Now, here's the good news.

For all fundraisers that have total sales of $2,000 or less, you will receive a minimum of 40%. If you raise more than $2,000 your women's charity receives a minimum of 50% from each order.

I deferred to the real expert, my wife, who went to the site and declared, "I would definitely buy this jewelry."
