Great Strides Links

People across the country are starting to buzz about Great Strides for CF, the largest national fund-raiser for Cystic Fibrosis. Although our OBX Walk takes place in the fall, most walks will happen in the next few months.

Here is your opportunity promote your participation in this awesome event by posting a link to your Great Strides related blog or Great Strides home page! Or, just give a shout out and let us know where you're walking and who you're walking for!

Thanks to everyone who supports Cystic Fibrosis by participating in or donating to Great Strides!

One of my closest friends has 3 out of 4 children with CF. She lives in FL and heads up that team, I head up a NY team for them (where they are originally from). We're even doing a fund raiser dinner this year at a local restauarant who is donating 10% of the total night's bill to Great Strides.
Woo hoo!

(We don't know anyone personally with CF, and had never heard of Great Strides before your blog, but when I caught wind of it this year I signed us up immediately.) I feel so glad that we can help out in some small way. God bless.

Among many other things, an airline ticket is perhaps the biggest, single money that you have to put up and deal with before traveling. This is so because regular airline tickets do not cost cheap. Finding one that does not dampen a tight budget is the topmost priority for people. Here, the internet comes in handy.

Cheap airline tickets can be found online. There are many sites calling themselves cheap airline ticket providers, but you really have to take a hold on their names. These online sites will give you the best savings you can never have on other means available.

So how do these online cheap airline ticket sites give such kind of savings?

Firstly, online sites offer the same kind of ticket that is being offered through other means and by airline companies. Of course all the tickets do come from one source: the airline carriers themselves. The cheap online airline tickets seller sites get their tickets from airline carriers by bulk. This if often sold to them at a bargain price. So when they are about to sell it online, you can see that the price are relatively lower than the regular prices. Some cheap airline ticket sites include Travelocity, Expedia, Previewtravel, Thetrip, Hotwire, and Webflyer among other sites. They are there with a guaranteed offer to sell cheap airline tickets anytime you want to fly and anywhere you want to go.

Airline companies also use the internet to send their services in giving their passengers easy access on the flight schedules and special offers. Online, it is easier to compare flights anytime of the day and find the cheapest trip for you with the least work. You are probably aware that flying during off-hours is cheaper than flying in the morning. Relatively, flying during weekdays is also cheaper than flying during weekends. Checking the online flight schedule as the easiest and most effective way to know the details and ticket prices of the flight you wish to take.
