It is amazing that earlier this week I reached out to you, my friends, colleagues, and followers, about raising money to support the Walk for ALS that I will be doing in a couple of weeks.  I set my goal to raise $1000, and I made my appeal to you to help.

LGDIt is amazing insofar as after 48 hours I was more than half way there.  With your help I have so far raised over $500, and I am thrilled and blessed.  More than that, I am touched by the messages I have received from many of you who have donated (and from a couple of you who are financially unable but still wanted to support me). I thank you all from the bottom of my heart!

However there is more to do… Halfway there means I still have a lot further to go before I reach my goal.  I ask that you find it in your hearts to dig deep and make a donation… click on the link here and give what you can… a little or a lot, whatever you can give.  Remember… there is no cure for this disease… many diseases have 20-90% survival rates and you donate because words like Cancer strike fear in our souls.  Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is 100% fatal, and worse, nobody knows where it comes from… which means it can strike any of us at any time.

Please donate what you can… your donations go to two funds:

  • Helping to find a cure; and
  • Funding much needed equipment for the afflicted, such as wheel chairs, walkers, and more.

I don’t ask often, but I need your help. ALL OF YOU.  If you have already donated then I thank you from the bottom of my heart.  If you have not then I beg that you find it in your heart to donate what you can.  If you find yourself falling on hard times I ask that you share my link… not only on Twitter and Facebook, but please e-mail my appeal to everyone on your contact list. 

I thank G-d every day that I am healthy, and when I was asked to walk to help raise money and awareness of a disease that has never touched my or anyone close to me I thought about it… but only for a minute before deciding to do it.

Thank you for your support!  You can donate by clicking here.
