Donate Now to a good cause y’all:
Now that we’re into the home stretch of the 2013 legislature, we should all be prepared for the “it’s for the children” excuse to pass a lot of really crappy legislation. Before we get to that stomach turning level, let’s take a moment to do something that actually IS for the children.
Frequent commenter and all around good guy John Vestal will again be participating in the St. Baldrick’s Day event, a fundraiser to raise money to cure childhood cancer. John and many others will be shaving their heads This Sunday, March 10th, to raise money for charity at The Harp Irish Pub in Roswell, which has been holding this annual event for 12 years.
Tanya Connolly-Walsh, daughter of Harp proprietor Ray Connolly, has been serving as the event organizer for several years going back to when her son, Keelin, was diagnosed with neuroblastoma at only six weeks of age. Keelin is now 8 and has been cancer-free for six years….and has also joined the ranks of the “shavees” at the annual events.
I’ve made a donation. Please consider doing so as well. To do so, go here. It really is for the children.
