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.
It 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.
