Shamelessly, I have stolen this text word-for-word from Amy at the Bitchin' Wives Club:
Kevin, from Always Home and Uncool, has a daughter that suffers from Juvenile Myositis, and through his and his family's efforts, they are thisclose
to winning $250,000 from Pepsi for the Cure JM Fund. They really need a
lot of help, though, because they are battling it out in the top three
right now and while the top two charities get $250k, the third one gets
nada, zip, ZERO. And that would be a crying shame if they missed it by
just a few votes. So please please please:
Please vote today and Tuesday then convince a friend or eight dozen to do the same. Here are the three magic ways to help them each day:
1. Text 100850 to Pepsi (73774) via a cell phone Your cell phone, your kids’, that pony-tailed faux hipster at the coffe shop. Just grab a cell and text.
2. Use the Facebook app: http://tinyurl.com/25ls7f8
3. Vote directly from the Pepsi site for our entire Kids to Win team. You will need to set up a Pepsi Refresh account -- takes a minute and allows you to vote for many great organizations we are partnering with: http://tinyurl.com/27o7239
I think you'll agree that she won't mind. Plus, I asked. Sort of.
And now for something completely different...
Keely wants you to vote for Cure JM, too.
- How many of you get to walk past a giant locomotive to get to the finance department where you work? Not so many, I'm thinking.
The Clock Tower of the Henry Ford Museum at night.
- Yup. Still totally enamored of my workplace.
- I was completely taken by surprise yesterday by the temperatures. I did not expect another set of 90+ degree days, yet here they are. This weekend, we will be a couple hundred miles north, and temps are expected to crest at 70. I can't WAIT to wear a hoodie again.
- If you don't already follow her, you should be reading my Much Older Sister's blog called Gene Notes. My favorite feature has been Thriller Thursday, where she reprints the text of newspaper articles about harrowing experiences like robbery, revenge, murder, kidnapping, suicide, and the occasional explosion. All of which took place pre-1920, for the most part, and all of which involved someone somehow connected to my family. As a teacher, I love to see history about real people, not just battles and dates.
- Coming Soon: A new teacher feature!
- If you haven't already done so, go back up to the links for the Pepsi Challenge and vote to fund research to Cure Juvenile Myositis. I really want to see the look on Kevin's face when all his hard work pays off.
