Friday's Five: Donate for Super Dylan

The Great Strides Walk is tomorrow -- we'll be joining with the Super Dylan Team to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

A very BIG thank you to those who have already donated to our team -- we appreciate your help! For those of you who are still interested in a making a gift, here's a pitch to help motivate you to sign up now. (I suddenly feel like I'm hosting the pledge drive on NPR. Ick.)

Here are five reasons why you should make a gift to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the Super Dylan Team:
  1. Super Dylan rocks: I mean, just look at him there, groovin' with Junius. The kid is smart, spunky and full of energy. If his smile doesn't motivate you to find a cure, I don't know what will.
  2. CFF uses your money well: Your gift will be used efficiently and effectively, as nearly 90 cents of every dollar of revenue raised is available for investment in vital CF programs to support research, care and education.
  3. Charitable giving is good for everyone: Your donation helps CFF do their good work and it helps your accountant tap into those tax deductions. That's called a win-win.
  4. Research means help now: CFF has built a pipeline for the development of more CF therapies that are coming to market now to help target problems in the airways and the digestive system. They haven't found a cure yet, but they're improving the lives of CF patients every day.
  5. Find a cure: The ultimate goal is that CF will stand for "Cure Found." This disease isn't something that happens to "other people." It happens to our people, and it's our responsibility to help.
Okay, pledge drive over. I can't offer you a coffee mug or promise to enter you into a drawing for a trip to London or Paris -- but I can send you my thanks and prayers that your gift will make a difference for Dylan. Click here to make a gift.
