Friends, I need your help!
« on: August 11, 2009, 01:28:51 PM »
I hope I'm putting this in the right thread . . .

A friend of mine just sent me an e-mail asking for help. On Saturday, he'll be running in the New York City Half Marathon for the second year in a row as an American Cancer Society charity runner. Over $1300 went to cancer research last year through online donations and support for Comedy for a Cure. He asked me to tell everyone I can about this fundraising effort.

Any amount that you can possibly contribute---from $1 to $1,000,000---will help the American Cancer Society in its effort to find a cure and to aid those afflicted with cancer. If you can't make a donation, you can still help by helping with upcoming fundraisers (for those of you who are in the States like me) or by simply spreading the word. More people in the know = more donations and volunteers. Please go here for more information and to donate online if you wish.

Thanks, guys. Remember, you don't need to donate to help----just tell as many people as possible about the cause! ;)

Thanks, Raxus! I believe one of the reasons I'm here on this earth is to help people. :)

If the e-mail came from someone you do not know, then I won't believe this. This might be a way to trick you. Luckily, its from your friend....which means it must (and it is) be safe.

This one made me remember of this topic. I would just hope that they would be able to make a cure for this illness. Its getting scary if you would have it, and your days are counted for you to live. Its just luck if you would last longer than the doctor's estimate, but its a miracle if you would reach 15 years more.

I'll try doing what I can as a student.   :reivsmile:

Thank you, Stardale. :)

And don't worry---the e-mail was indeed from someone I know personally. He graduated from my college this past year. We were both in the school's production of Volpone that spring. :D

Thanks, mepwnn! That really means a lot to me, even if your ingrate friends don't care. :angry:

And no, I won't be hung up on that (for too long). :D The point is that SOMEONE will see it on your Facebook page and decide to aid the cause in some way, so go you~!
