This is easy, he is only trying to raise $500.00.
Dear Friends and Family:
Did you know that cancers of the blood
affect more than 700,000 Americans each year? Furthermore, did you know
that they make up more than 35% of the new cancer cases diagnosed in
children ages 0-14 each year? Unfortunately, since high school, these
statistics have continually stuck close to home as many close to my
life have been diagnosed, fought courageously, and in too many cases
lost the battle.
For the past five years I have tried to make a
difference by donating platelets to support cancer patients. To date I
have donated more than eleven gallons to this cause and have become a
registered donor on the National Marrow Donor Program. Recently, as yet
another friend has been diagnosed, I have decided it is time to do more
and need your help to do it. I have joined the Leukemia & Lymphoma
Society’s Team in Training program. This program will enable me to
challenge myself physically while making a financial impact for the
benefit of cancer research.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
is a national voluntary health agency dedicated to curing Leukemia,
Lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease, and Myeloma while improving the quality of
life of patients and families. Through their Team in Training programs
we are able to make a difference.
In my commitment to Team in
Training, I will be participating in the San Diego Rock & Roll
Marathon June 3, 2007. My goal will be to complete this 26.2 mile race
in less than four hours! As a member of Team in Training, I have
promised to raise $3,000.00 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. As
too many close to me have had their lives impacted by these devastating
diseases or have lost the battle, I will be running in their honor.
the sponsorship and fundraising goals I have are miniscule in
comparison to task of finding a cure, I know in my heart that every bit
counts and can make a difference. I am currently running eight miles
daily in training and work each Saturday morning with our team to
ensure I will be able to complete the physical part of this event. I
ask for your encouragement and financial support to meet my fundraising
goals by May 1, 2007. The simplest way to sponsor is through my website
If you prefer, checks can be made payable to The Leukemia &
Lymphoma Society and mailed to me at 132 Morningside Lane, Redlands, CA
92374. All donations are 100% tax deductible.
With my most heartfelt thanks,
Please forward this email to as many people as you can to encourage them to donate as well!
It is so true and so many dont see it.
One sunny day in 2008, an old man approached the White House from across Pennsylvania Avenue, where he’d been sitting on a park bench.
He spoke to the Marine standing guard and said, “I would like to go in and meet with President Hillary Clinton.”
The Marine replied, “Sir, Mrs. Clinton is not President and doesn’t reside here.”
The old man said, “Okay,” and walked away.
The following day, the same man approached the White House and said to the same Marine, “I would like to go in and meet with President Hillary Clinton”.
The Marine again told the man, “Sir, as I said yesterday, Mrs. Clinton is not President and doesn’t reside here.”
The man thanked him and again walked away . . .
The third day, the same man approached the White House and spoke to the very same Marine, saying “I would like to go in and meet with President Hillary Clinton.”
The Marine, understandably agitated at this point, looked at the man and said, “Sir, this is the third day in a row you have been here asking to speak to Mrs. Clinton. I’ve told you already several times that Mrs. Clinton is not the President and doesn’t reside here. Don’t you understand?”
The old man answered, “Oh, I understand you fine, I just love hearing your answer!”
The Marine snapped to attention, saluted, and said, “See you tomorrow.
The Sunday School teacher was describing how Lot’s wife looked back and turned into a pillar of salt, when little Jason interrupted, “My Mummy looked back once, while she was driving,” he announced triumphantly, “and she turned into a telephone pole!”
DID NOAH FISH?
A Sunday school teacher asked, “Johnny, do you think Noah did a lot of fishing when he was on the Ark ?” “No,” replied David. “How could he, with just two worms?”
A Sunday school teacher said to her children, ” We have been learning how powerful kings and queens were in Bible times. But, there is a higher power. Can anybody tell me what it is?”
One child blurted out, “Aces!”
THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD
A Sunday school teacher decided to have her young class memorize one of the most quoted passages in the Bible; Psalm 23. She gave the youngsters a month to learn the verse. Little Rick was excited about the task — but, he just couldn’t remember the Psalm. After much practice, he could barely get past the first line.
On the day that the kids were scheduled to recite Psalm 23 in front of the congregation, Rickey was so nervous. When it was his turn, he stepped up to the microphone and said proudly, “The Lord is my Shepherd, and that’s all I need to know.”
There was a very gracious lady who was mailing an old family Bible to her brother in another part of the country. “Is there anything breakable in here?” asked the postal clerk.
“Only the Ten Commandments,” answered the lady.
While driving in Pennsylvania , a family caught up to an Amish carriage. The owner of the carriage obviously had a sense of humor, because attached to the back of the carriage was a hand printed sign…
“Energy efficient vehicle: Runs on oats and grass.
Caution: Do not step in exhaust.
Sunday after church, a Mom asked her very young daughter what the lesson was about. The daughter answered, ” Don ‘t be scared, you’ll get your quilt.” Needless to say, the Mom was perplexed. Later in the day, the pastor stopped by for tea and the Mom asked him what that morning’s Sunday school lesson was about. He said “Be not afraid, thy comforter is coming.”
