In Honor of Charlie
The Power of $1
all witnessed what a single $1 can do if people are willing take a few minutes
and mail it. Just think of all of the yellow bracelets that you see around - I
hear Lance Armstrong raised more than a million for cancer research. I'm going
to try to do the same :0) Ok -- maybe not a million, but heck what about $1,000
or $5,000 or even $10,000. I'm asking you to give a $1 -- not for a yellow
bracelet or any bracelet at all but just for the knowledge that you will be
helping families and kids living with SMA -- helping them get the proper
equipment, medicine or other support that insurance may deny. Or maybe it will
just be used to send the kids something to brighten up their day or even to help
pay for some of the growing piles of medical bills. Or God Forbid, help the
parents pay for the funeral expenses of the child they lost to this disease.
If you feel like you can spare your dollar -- here is what I am asking you to do:
1. Get your $1 (more if compelled)
Write SMA Hero
on that dollar (or any other person who is living or has lived with SMA)
3. Put it in an envelope and send it to:
SMA Support Inc.
PO Box 6301
Kokomo, IN 46904-6301
last but not least
4. Forward this email on to all of you family and friend.
