I have a friend I’ve known since we were about 12. We have some crazy memories that can get us both laughing hysterically. Thanks to the internet, we can stay in touch through email and chat.
Right now, a dark shadow hangs over my friend, Gina. Her husband has an aggressive form of prostrate cancer. They are currently raising funds to help get him to an alternative treatment center in California.
Gina came up with a great idea to help raise the money. She compiled a cookbook in PDF format and is only asking $1.00 per book. They officially launched the cookbook fund raiser in March. To date, she has raised $13,030 of the $20,000 needed through the sale of the cookbook and donations. You can find out more at her website here.
Now, friends of theirs, the VIP Travel Family, have come up with another fund raiser idea to hopefully bring in the last $7,000. You can go to the website and set up your own fund raiser page. For every $25 you raise online, your name will be entered in a drawing for ten different vacations from VIP Travel Services Online. The challenge goes from May 13th at 8:00 a.m. until Sunday, June 1st at 5:00 p.m. If you’d rather not enter the challenge, but would like to donate to help get George into the treatment center, you can click on my fund raising page. You can also track how the Online Challengers are doing. Finally, you can leave a message in the guest book to encourage George and Gina. They would appreciate your prayers, too.
Thanks for helping out whether through prayers or financially. I know they appreciate it. The sooner they can get George admitted into the program, the better.
