Contagious can be defined as “exciting similar emotion or behavior in others”. So far Corcoran’s in Old Town, Cookie’s Corner and the Fountains In Minooka, Illinois have joined the KISS ALS GOODBYE donation drive. There are rumors of more fine establishments joining the party…I’ll keep you posted!
Here’s my fantasy: 100 people enroll 200 pubs and bars to participate in a donation drive once a year ~ for a month …let’s lowball it and say each establishment raises 5000 bucks over the course of a month, that’s $1,000,000 bucks…Yep- ANd in my fantasy each donation card doubles as a raffle ticket for something huge…like a car! and there are prizes for the bartender or waiter/waitress who raises the most funds in any given area…and this is an annual event …and we take it nation wide…until we have a cure and we can stop depending on the people who are dying from ALS and their families to bear the brunt of the fundraising because big pharma is not fracking interested in a disease that only impacts 30,000 people at any given time BECAUSE THEY DIE TOO FAST TO BUILD UP A SIGNIFICANT POPULATION.
How about them apples? Who’s with me? Bring it on people…Times a wastin’.
