The readers of this blog, along with readers of JeanetteFriedman.com and DovBear have raised over $1600 to save the lives of two Ethiopian children with Hodgkin’s Disease. This is really good news, but there is a problem. What is it?
We need $188 more to do the job. If you can give, please do so now. Even small amounts are welcome. Once we have the $188, I’ll send the entire $1800 to the JDC in New York. They’ll get the entire $1800 to Dr. Rick Hodes in Addis Ababa.
Time is of the essence. These children will, God forbid, die if they don’t get treatment, and Dr. Rick doesn’t have the money to pay for the medicines needed to save their lives. In other words, your dollars really count and your donation really matters.
Please give now. J

UPDATE: 1/11/06 9pm CST – Our goal has been reached! The $1800 will soon be on its way to Dr. Hodes. You can still donate by emailing me. All additional money raised will be sent to Dr. Hodes. No funds will be siphoned off for handling or adminstration.
