Why I Work For The Leukemia Society
I’m raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
It’s a pretty big deal.
I’m supporting this organization because the “gay community” has proven itself to be extremely effective at raising funds for its own causes, like political organizations and AIDS research and care–but we don’t have to support our own causes all the time. As I’m a part of that “community,” I think we should contribute to the world around us.
But it doesn’t matter what your reason is. Please, go to this page:
On that page you can make a donation. In Miami, $20 will buy you about 2 drinks. And everyone I know drinks more than that on any given night. If we can afford overpriced liquor, we can afford giving to the leukemia & lymphoma society. And I promise, as much fun as those drinks are, this will feel better.
The event will be June 8, 2007, at the Hyatt Regency in Fort Lauderdale. Lots of blue-blood corporate types will be there, should you wish to network with people who have lots of money.
If you’ve never given money to a charity before, now is your chance. This is a recording. Please wait for the beep. Thank you.
