It’s that time of year again… when I ask you for money. It’s not for me; it’s for the ALS Association to fight Lou Gehrig’s disease.
Some of you who read this site may have already received an email from me. If not, hook a brother up!
A friend of mine, Andy Bolton, died from ALS on June 30, 2004. That’s why I walked last year, and why I’m walking again this year. You can learn more about this neurodegenerative disease at this website.
Last year, my friends and family helped me raise over $1,200, and all of us in Andy’s Gang raised over $19,000. I think we can do better this year, with your help.
Let me make this absolutely clear: If you cannot or do not wish to make a donation, that’s 100% cool with me. No harm, no foul, no guilt from me. If, however, you’re still with me, here are some tips for donating:
- Even though the online (secure!) donation form has options starting at $25, they do offer an “Other Amount” selection.
- If you don’t want your name to be publically viewable on the ALS website, please check the “Please make this an anonymous donation” box on the form.
- Please check with your employer to see if they have an Employer Matching program.
- Your donation is tax-deductible; remember to print a copy of your confirmation as proof come tax time next April.
Thank you in advance for your donation. Again, if not, no worries.
