I opened my inbox and was faced with this. Give it a read and help if you can.
A friend of mine, Matt Wolpin, has recently joined the non-profit Team
In Training to raise awareness and funds for The Leukemia Society. As
part of the TNT program, he is in the process of training for a 100
miles on a bike in Solvang’s Finest Century On November 14.
While you won’t have to ride a bike 100 miles like him, unless you
want to, I am asking for your help to raise funds in support of his
endeavor to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) by making a
donation to his fundraising campaign. Currently, Matt is $1,500 from
reaching his goal of raising $3,000 for The LLS, with about a month
left to raise funds.
To donate to his campaign, please use the following link:
By using the above-mentioned link, you will be able to donate quickly
and securely, all the while learning more about his training (800+
miles in the past two months) and fundraising progress.
Each donation helps accelerate the research for finding a cure for
leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma and the 50 variations of blood cancer.
Currently, more than 820,000 people are battling blood cancer and
Matt’s participation in Team In Training will help bring them and
their families some hope and support.
Understanding the current turbulent economy, if you’re healthy and
have a stable job, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to
Matt’s fundraising campaign. Any amount will put him closer to
reaching his fundraising goal of $3,000.
On behalf of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Team In Training, cancer
patients worldwide, Matt and myself, thank you very much for your
If you know of anyone else that would be interested in donating,
please don’t hesitate to forward this letter.
Again, thank you for any and all assistance.
Momentum of Failure would like to strongly urge you to donate to this great cause. Every little bit helps.
