Woo hoo!!! With another co-worker donation today, I've now reached 78% of my fundraising goal (although it only shows 55% - I have cash donated that I have to deposit). Still waiting on my dear sweet generous older brother... HINT HINT... and whatever money I can raise from a 50/50 draw that a friend of mine is putting on. When I get those two amounts I should have made my goal or surpassed it. However, don't let that put you off. If you've got $5 you can part with (Alun at Archaeoastronomy, my first sponsor, noted that this is less that £2.50 for any of my British readers), please help us find a cure for Breast Cancer.

As an added bonus for anyone who donates $5, you will get a chance at winning a fabulous prize donated by yours truly! Each $5 will give you one guess at my finish time. See? There are still squares left! The person who comes closest to guessing my finish time (without going over) will win! And you can bet that the prize will be worth more than a mere $5. For anyone in the EU, this is approximately only 3.51 Euros.

Think of it this way. How many of us stop by Starbucks, Tim Hortons, or Second Cup for that daily latte, cappuchino, or cup of regular java? How much does that cost you? Before you answer, let me ask you this: how many of you, when you get that delicious hot bevvie also add on a muffin, donut, Tim Bit, croissant or bagel? Sounds like a fabulous breakfast doesn’t it? I’m not asking for you to donate a kidney, give up your first born child or mortgage your house. I’m asking you to give up that morning coffee for just one day, this Wednesday September 13, 2006. Instead of spending that fiver on coffee and a donut, please donate it to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and help save a life. Your mother’s life. Your sister’s. Your daughter’s. Your wife’s. Your grandmother’s. Your girlfriend’s. YOUR OWN LIFE.

Women AND men, we all have breasts. We can ALL get breast cancer. Although it is more common for women to get it, men get breast cancer too. I don’t care if you donate specifically to my fundraising page, or you sponsor someone you know personally. Please just do it. Isn’t saving a life worth a single cup of coffee?

I think you'd have an easier time convincing most to give up their first born than give up their timmies. Jeez woman.
