good cause!

  1. This morning I opened up my email to find a short note from a cousin of mine whom I haven't talked to in a long time. Her note contained a website address about her brother (also my cousin) and his friends who are about to do something incredibly stupid....They are walking from Chicago, Illinois to San Francisco, California to raise money for the American Cancer Society!

    They are about to start their journey in two hours. Their progress will be tracked on the website. You can donate in three different ways, 1) through PayPal, 2) $$ per mile, or 3) buy Stupid Stuff from the Stupid Store.

    Anyway, check it out And support the cause!


    P. S. I just bought some shirts and a cap! The logo is pretty cool!

    I am not sure if they left yet. I'm waiting for my cousin to email me back. I don't have her phone number...I should call my sister for the digits.

    This is very noble. My daughter is about to graduate from high school so I think I'll purchase something.

    Boy you know this a really great idea and all that these guys are doing this however I have my reservations about dontating to these guys.

    Why, in God's, Allah's, Buddah's, etc.'s name, are you doing this?
    To provide you with yet another form of reality entertainment, of course! One answer is that we just feel like doing something somewhat unique. In reality, it's been done many, many times by our forefathers (and/or foremothers, we'd guess) but it's just not done in today's world. The real answer to this question will be found on the trip, as our good friend, Kevin, likes to tell us (yes, he's really a therapist; someday he'll have his doctorate and we'll worship him like the God he will have become.)
    Will something good come of this (besides foolish entertainment)?
    We're thinking of doing a walk-for-charity thing. If you think our site is neat and you feel like being a kind-hearted human, you can contribute to us and the cool charity that we choose. (We haven't decided who the charity will be just yet, but we promise it will be a good one, even though we're not quite sure how you would decide who a really "good" charity is.)
    Perhaps if they had a link on there to their charity or if they even picked a charity yet, I might donate. But I'm not just going to hand over my hard earned $$ to fuel those guys fun. They even admit they don't if or what charity they will donate to.

    Sorry to have to point that out, but I was looking for the charity on there (American Cancer Society) and I didn't see it mentioned on there anywhere.

    If they want to fix that and get more $$ I suggest they get a charity ASAP and then have the charity link their site to charity's site, that way everything is legit. Cause right now donating is just funding for their fun. Sounds like fun though makes me want to quit my job and join em, I'm sure it'd be a blast.
