  • If everybody gave a dollar

    Last year, I got on here and asked you guys to vote for my son in a photo contest. He won, by a landslide in a comeback victory. I was amazed.

    This year, my wife has signed up to run a marathon in San Fransisco for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. She needs to raise $3900 and is currently $1300 behind. I am asking you guys to donate $1 a piece if you want. I figure that this will not hurt the pocket and we can achieve a goal together.

    My wife has a website for her marathon through Team in Training . Her deadline is next week, and I am only asking because it is going to cost me out of pocket if we don't raise the money.

    Plus, if this works out, I will have a huge favor to cash in on.

    All I am looking for is a dollar a piece. There is a secure donation link on their where you can dontate money.

    Thanks in advance.

    On quick question, at the bottom it says "1 day until donation deadline"... is that just a mistake??
    Do it because you love it, not because you love being seen doing it.

      Deadline

      Actually, they pushed the deadline back for us, luckily. Because my lovely wife was ready to swipe the old credit card. I am trying to keep the Society at bay as long as possible. She will be running on the 22nd of October and actually give an extra month to collect funds, however before all that we have to foot the remaining bill.

      In case there is any question, by using the secure donation thingy on her site, the money does not go through our hands at all.

      Thanks again.

            I think I did it. Im not sure how much it actually cost me cause of the exchange rates though. But im pretty certain that the Aussie dollar is buying around about 75 US cents.
            "There are only two things that i know are infinite, the universe and human stupidity. And im not so sure about the former."

            For all the life of me, i cant see a firefighter going to hell. At least not for very long. We would end up putting out all the fires and annoying the devil too much.

                        done!
                        I recently did the 60km walk for Breast Cancer, and I know how difficult it can be to raise funds. Every little bit helps.
