Weird year, huh?
If you're at all like me, this has been a challenging year. Remote schooling, remote working, furloughs, budget cuts, penny-pinching. Businesses have been lost, lost revenue, shut down, or slowed operation.
And as terrible as all those things are, it's not the worst of it. The worst are those who have been sick, had loved-ones sick, or worse, from this pandemic.
Throughout all of this, there is one organization that not only hasn't shut down, it's stepped up. Big time. In ways that we can only imagine.
That organization is Chai Lifeline.
Chai Lifeline (chailifeline.org) offers social, emotional, and financial support to families struggling with a child who is ill.
However hard this year has been for many of us, imagine how much worse it's been for the kids and families of Chai Lifeline. Hospital staff even more strung out than usual. No one visiting. Even more seclusion than normal. Families getting extra financial hits. Increased rick of getting sick. With no reprieve in sight.
But Chai Lifeline wouldn't let that happen. They were still there, every step of the way, supporting not only their usual clientele, but all those hit by the Covid-19 pandemic.
So no matter how hard it is to support an organization during this crazy year, this is certainly one that even more so this year, has been carrying people and keeping them from the brink, and they need our help.
So I ask you, please dig deep. This year, I'll be doing 2 races with Team Lifeline, my 5th and 6th, and will help coach others to run and fundraise as well. Help me raise $5,000 by race day. Your tax deductible contributions can be made either on-line teamlifeline.org/vegas20/gprero or by sending me a check (3028 W. Fargo Ave., Chicago, IL 60645) – and are greatly appreciated.
We are not out of the woods yet. And no matter how long it takes, Chai Lifeline will be shining a light for all those that need it, guiding the way until they see the light at the end of this tunnel.
Let's help keep them stocked on batteries.
I'll try to sweeten the deal just a little bit. Make a $250 donation and I'll send you a free pair of stock cufflinks from my shop. Donate $360 or more and I'll make you a free custom pair.
Together, we can accomplish something really special.
