Birthday Wish (and a free smart watch)

Today is my 56th birthday – woo!

We have a fun day planned – I started with a morning track workout with some running buddies – this afternoon we’ll take a tour of our local oyster farm (Island Creek Oysters in Duxbury) – and tonight we’ll go to a concert with Lyle Lovett and his Large Band. We also have our good friends the Hintze’s visiting from Wisconsin – so it’s shaping up to be a great birthday!

I want to “exchange” gifts with you…

I’m raising money for Erika’s Lighthouse – a charity that educates teenagers about depression – and I would love it if you’re able to make a donation to support their amazing work (that is your gift to me).

We use these watches in some of our research studies to track steps, sleep, stress, and other health parameters – and we have a few remaining from our last trial.

My gift to you is that for every donation of $75 or more, I’ll send you a Garmin VivoSmart 4 smartwatch.

Donate $100 – and I’ll send you TWO watches.

They sell for around $85 on Amazon (discounted from the regular $129) – so this is a great deal and you’ll have the good vibes for supporting a great charity.

All you have to do is submit a donation – and I’ll reach out via email to get your mailing address to ship the watches.

Good vibes will be transferred immediately. 😎

      Thanks Rebecca!
      We’ve had lots of amazing people make donations today to this great cause – and helping a lot of teenagers recognize the warning signs of depression…
