Let's Kick Off The New Year With Malaria No More!
« on: December 12, 2007, 12:58:10 am »
Guys I have an idea and I hope that you will join me in this effort. Many of our Backups will be taking part in the marathon for Malaria No More this spring. Well I would like to kick it up a notch and start celebrating it on New Years Day!

I would be thirlled if many of us would come together and donate a bednet on New Years day in honor of Melinda to celebrate the upcoming marathon. This project is near and dear to Melinda and I know it is also very close to our hearts. Let's start saving lives on New Years Day guys.

You can make donations at mnm@melindasbackups.com. Checks can be made out to:  Malaria No More to: MNM Marathon, P.O. Box 72053, Louisville, KY  40272. The New Year Challenge, lets help wipe out this dreaded disease one bednet at a time. Thanks guys.

Great idea Sally!
I am going to donate, too. Don't know how much yet, but I will!!!

And I am also one of those crazy Backups who will walk/run the half marathon! If I can do it ... many of us can. So why don't you set a goal and think to spend your vacation with us all in Nashville?? I tell you, it is worth the time, the money, and the energy!
I promise that I will be at my best and geegle and geegle and geegle  Rolling On Floor Laughing Rolling On Floor Laughing Rolling On Floor Laughing and cheer you all up!
After the race I can even start telling Italian jokes ...  Super excited Yikes

Any more takers for News Day, join us guys and lets continue to save lives $10.00 at a time. It would be great if all disease and illnesses could be fixed $10.00 at a time. So, come on give me an M N M. Together we can do lots!

Sally, keep in mind that the regular season football pool ends Dec 30th so lots of people will be donating to MNM on or around Jan 1st!
