— Former WWE Diva Trish Stratus has a blog talking about reaching her goal of the fans raising $5,000 for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Overall, $5,325 was raised.”Combining the online contributions with the funds we received at the holiday party at Stratusphere (as well as funds sent via the mail to the studio) the Heart and Stroke Foundation called me with a great birthday surprise – needless to say they were absolutely thrilled at the official number following the event (and actually quite shocked that we raised that much in just under 2 weeks – which I do concur is amazing!),” Stratus wrote. “You guys, we totally rock – I’m so proud of the job we did! Thank you to everyone who contributed – doesn’t feel good to know you are helping to make a difference? Again, I do concur (favorite new word of the day)!” Stratus also talks about the outpouring of support for her birthday, meeting fans at her Stratusphere yoga studio last night, and more.
