What you may not know is that 14 months prior to starting my running streak, I started a donation streak. The concept is simple, donate at least $1 per mile run each month. I am fortunate to have a good job, a supportive family, recognize that this is not the case for everyone. I started this streak as a way to force myself to keep up with my charitable giving.
My donation streak turned three years old at the end of October. During the three years, I ran 7,099 miles and have donated to 48 separate charities. Through this time, I have seen my monthly milage increase from 137 to a peak of 300 with an average of 197. In November of 2013, one of the charities I contributed to, Invisible Children, even did a spotlight on me.

I don't have any plans on stopping either of my streaks and hope that everyone else will continue with the work that they do also.
Together lets continue to make a difference.
For more info on my charitable giving, see the fundraising section of my blog. I am always looking for new and interesting charities to contribute to and suggestions are welcome.
