Hope-a belief in a positive outcome related to events and circumstances in one’s life.

What started out as a prank on the internet has now turned into something that has totally warmed my heart.  Pulling a The David Cook for Charity Prank which is that we all pick a charity and we get to bring awareness to their mission.

At first I was all, I don’t even have a charity and then I remembered I have a friend on facebook, Shannon Vagge Cox, who started her own charity when her sister-in-law had struggled with cancer and insurance.  Her charity is The Rocky Mountain Foundation of Hope.

Rocky Mountain Foundation of Hope (RMH) proudly provides financial and emotional support for all cancer patients who are underinsured or have been denied the necessary care by their insurance company and to help fund cancer research. 

Jewely, a 4th grade elementary school teacher in Littleton, Colorado, was diagnosed in early 2008 with stage 4 colon cancerYou can click here to learn more about Jewely, Shannon’s sister-in-law who’s plight to get her procedures covered is what ignited the flame to start The Rocky Mountain Foundation of Hope to help others who struggle to get their insurance companies to pay when they are sick.

I find it so admirable that in a time when Jewely and Shannon and their families could have sat back and been upset and angry and frustrated they instead decided to do something about it.  The Rocky Mountain Foundation of Hope will be hosting an Art for Hope fundraiser at teh end of this month and I hope they are able to raise a ton of money!  And maybe that is why I want to do this, there have been times I have seen Shannon post messages about upcoming events with The Rocky Mountain Foundation of Hope, and I have thought man I sure do wish I had the money to be able to donate.  So since I can’t do that I want to do this and hopefully bring some more awareness to The Rocky Mountain Foundation of Hope, and let it help others and possibly even inspire someone to start their own charity. 

Make lemonade out of lemons!

“The feeling of hopefulness sometimes comes from someone helping us. Think back to a time when you had lost hope. Many times we regained our optimism because someone gave us a helping hand.”
Catherine Pulsifer, from Poem for Hope

One of my favorite bloggers is pranking the internet, yes folks (ya I don’t have folks yet but I will) Aunt Becky over at  is out to prank the WORLD ok not the world just the interwebs.  So I thought oh who is so deserving of being John C. Mayer’d but non other than Mark RM. Wahlberg!

Oh Mark RM. Wahlberg you have complicated my life from the first moment I laid eyes on your six pack abs and the elasticy wasteband of your white Calvin Kleins, there was no returning to the pure innocent joy I found in your brother’s group, New Kids on the Block.  No, I had now been introduced to you Mark RM. Wahlberg and your funky bunch doing moves that the NKOTB only dreamed of!

  Oh Mark RM. Wahlberg you and your funky bunch got the girls a moving with your “Good Vibrations” and it was from then on my innocent eyes would be constantly on the lookout for abs like yours Mark RM. Wahlberg!  And then Mark RM Wahlberg it was like you left me for my formative college years only to show back up in movies like “Boogie Nights” starring as Dirk Diggler and oh heck ya we got to see that amazing body of yours again oh you sexy stud Mark RM Wahlberg!

You can act my friend, oh how you can act! Oh but then you tried to impress me more by producing one of the greatest shows ever Mark RM Wahlberg and yes I am speaking of  “Entourage” on HBO.  It quickly became one of my favorite shows.  But you didn’t stop there you went on to star in other movies like “Three Kings”, “We Own the Night” and “The Lovely Bones”.  Mark RM Wahlberg my heart skipped a beat when you showed up in “Date Night” and I couldn’t agree more Mark RM Wahlberg with Phil Foster “When you took one look at him you lit up like a sparkly sparkler. And I get it because I lit up too! He is super hot! Why, why do you need muscles on your shoulders like that? And I am just a husband, just a dork who doesn’t know how to load the dishwasher. I am the guy who needs to work out more.”

Yes Mark RM Wahlberg you have just been John C Mayer’d and I hope you like it a lot!
