This just in:

A friend of a friend of a blogger I read is riding in the 20th Anniversary BP MS 150, a bike ride to benefit those stricken with Multiple Sclerosis, the chronic, often progressive disease of the central nervous system.

This guy needs people to sponsor him for his ride. He needs another $160.00 or so to meet his goal. If you would like to donate, you can do so by clicking here, or by cutting and pasting the following link in your browser's address:

http://www.ms150.org/MS150/donate/donate.cfm?id=89761

You can donate any amount, from a single dollar on up...and you can even make the donation anonymously (to stay off those pesky mailing lists).

Whether you donate or not, can you do me (and him) a personal favor and copy this post to your journal? There are so many silly quiz memos floating around out there, why not add something with the power to change (and perhaps save) lives, like this post?

I hope this hasn't sounded too preachy...that was never the intention. Now go donate, or you will be punished for eternity! =]

Come on, just a dollar will make a difference! And I want to see copies of this post in your journal!

Pleeeeeease?

To paraphrase a popular ad:

* Copying a do-good post to my journal: $0
* Linking to an MS donation site: $0
* Donation to MS ride: A week sans Latte($20)
* Making a total stranger scratch his head and smile (while contributing to a worthwhile cause): Priceless

Every decision should be this easy.
