Journey to World Championship Dream

Dear Family, Friends & Beloved Fellow Toastmasters:

If you are reading this, chances are our lives have crossed in some way.

As you may or may not be aware, I have been very blessed with the opportunity to compete as a semi-finalist representing District 12 in the Toastmasters World Championship of Public Speaking on August 22, 2014 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

If you have ever been inspired by one of my speeches, learned something helpful you didn’t know before, were encouraged to take action, or simply believed I can make a difference in people’s lives, please consider being part of this amazing journey by offering a donation to help offset the costs of traveling and competing overseas. Your support will be much appreciated as Toastmasters only pays a small percentage of the overall expenses.

Though asking for support has been difficult, the outpouring of support already given has left me humbled and speechless. It has also shown me that the community we share is powerful, generous, and values positive messages.

To become part of this exciting journey, please consider:

1) Offering a donation
2) Sharing this site with your family & friends
3) Saying a prayer that my messages reach the right person(s).

Do know that win or lose in Malaysia, touching the hearts of people like you has become very important to me, and I'll continue sharing messages of hope and inspiration wherever I can.

I am glad our paths have crossed.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Cindy Carpenter
