Comments for a Cure is here! For every comment I receive on Beauty and Fashion Tech and Girl Gloss between today (Oct. 13, 2008) and the end of Wednesday (Oct. 15, 2008), I will donate $1, with a cap of $50, to the Walter Payton Cancer Fund. So here is your chance to send money to a good cause simply by leaving a comment.
About the fund, from its website:
The Walter Payton Cancer Fund was created by the Payton family to honor Walter’s life. After witnessing the ravaging effects of cancer on her husband, Connie Payton was determined to direct new research funding toward researchers seeking a cure with the same grit and determination that Walter showed on the football field as well as during his battle with cancer.
Connie chose Gateway for Cancer Research to administer the Walter Payton Cancer Fund. Its mission is to cure cancer through funding innovative research that has an immediate impact on cancer patients. As a special fund of Gateway for Cancer Research, 100% of every dollar donated to the Walter Payton Cancer Fund goes toward cancer research programs.
You can also help out by donating directly. If you wish to do so, look in the left sidebar for the chipin widget. I am using that to raise additional funds for the Walter Payton Cancer Fund. All donations are certainly appreciated!
