Hey guys, so this week I wanted to write about a suggestion that I got. It’s not really a suggestion anymore, I’ve decided I’ll do it. This doesn’t really make sense, let me explain. So if you don’t already know, for March I signed myself up to do 10K steps a day for Cancer Research. So far I have done over 10K steps a day (It’s a week today that I started and so far I have managed it). So far I have had £15.00 in donations too, which I’m really pleased about, it’s only been a week and I’m 15% into my goal already (I didn’t think I would be).
Why am I writing this? What is the title about? What’s the big announcement I’m talking about?
On Saturday morning, I asked my mate if he would sponsor me for the 10K challenge, I told him so far I have done every day since starting, that I had proof on all my social media’s and that obviously, it was for a good cause. He said that he would sponsor me at the end of the month if I did every single day – Which is fair enough.
He also gave me an idea and as much as I wish that I had come up with the great idea myself, I didn’t, so he gets the credit for that. You know who you are, I would mention your name but I don’t know if you’d want me to or not.
So here’s what he suggested, he said that if I miss a day that I should do a forfeit.
However, I said that I read somewhere that if on one day I do 15K steps and then the next day I only do 5K steps, that it adds up and still counts.
He said that’s more like cheating, a way out, and the more I thought about it, the more I figured he was right.
So I asked him what the forfeit would be… He came up with dying my hair pink. And I
came up with a few more ideas.
So here’s what I’m going to do, in a few days (I hope) after posting this, I am going to upload a poll somewhere (I don’t know where yet) and let people vote on what my forfeit should be. BUT HERE’S THE CATCH! You can only vote if you donate on my fundraising page, I mean you can vote if you don’t donate, your vote just won’t be counted.
Even if you donate 10p, your vote will count.
I’m open to suggestions on what my forfeit should be. Here are a few ideas that some mates and I have come up with so far:
- Dye my hair pink
- Walk around college/town in my bright pink unicorn onesie all day (Don’t judge me, it was a Christmas present and it is amazing!!)
- Wear odd shoes
- Don’t speak for a whole 24 hours
- Eat sushi (I’ve never had it before)
- Start a YouTube channel
(A lot of these ideas aren’t mine, I only had the unicorn onesie idea – Credit to those that have given me forfeits.)
So here’s what you’ve got to do if you want to vote on my forfeit, either donate and add your name with the forfeit you would want me to do, or you could donate, show me proof that you have (If you don’t want to add your name) and get your vote that way. (You can only vote for one thing, I really am open to suggestions. The more suggestions I have, the more I’ll add to the poll – Obviously, it will be depending on if they are reasonable).

It’s all for a good cause – That’s what I keep telling myself.
Okay, so that’s it. That’s what the big announcement is about. I think it’s quite big, I’m terrified of the outcome of this forfeit. Depending on the forfeit depends when I will carry it out (For example: If the unicorn forfeit is picked then I will have to wait until after half term to do this, obviously – OR when re-reading this to check for mistakes I had an idea, I could walk around town all day in a unicorn onesie, whatever you guys vote). I will be doing the forfeit at the end of March – unless I am unable to. I’m just going to wrap this up here, thank you so much for everyone’s support. It means a lot, keep smiling and don’t forget to donate if you want to get the chance to decide what you want me to do… I’m a little nervous for this, ha-ha… Much love – Ally xx
