Can you spare $5 this month? for the MDA

I’m a little late posting this one today,  due to a doctor’s appointment, my crappy memory, and an inability to plan properly, but hopefully I’m not too late to enlist a few people.

If you don’t already know what this is about, please check last month’s post for a full description of what I’m doing here and why.

Help Fight Muscular DystrophyThis month, I’m inviting everyone to join me in giving just $5 to the Muscular Dystrophy Association.  I’m choosing them this month for personal reasons.  If you know me very well you’ll know that I have a peripheral neuropathy, which just happens to be one of the neuro-muscular disorders that the MDA helps with aside from muscular dystrophies.  

I’ve been receiving services from the MDA on and off for most of my life.  They run some of the best clinics in the nation for neuro-muscular disorders, they have great programs to help with all aspects of dealing with living with disorders like mine, and they’ve been nothing but helpful when I’ve needed them.  They also fund massive amounts of research to help improve the lives of those of us with all sorts of neuro-muscular diseases.

I don’t have the money to give to them like I’d like to, but I can give up one meal this month and give $5.  $5 might not seem a lot, but if I can give $5, and you can give $5 (or $1, or $2, or $20), and some of your friends can join us as well, pretty soon we may be able to give enough to make a real difference.  So if you’re able to give, you can do so through the link here: 


I don’t get anything out of this, and I won’t get a notification of your donation, but I’d love to hear from you if you were able to help out.  Just drop me a note here, or at our Facebook group, and let us know that you’ve joined in.  I’ll be back with a different charity next month.  If you have any suggestions please feel free to leave a note about that as well.
