Larry & Donna, Happy 40th Trip

$300 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 4 people in 66 months
Donna Smith  DENVER, CO

   Larry and I married on June 3, 1976.  As we looked forward to our 40th wedding anniversary, I wanted to do another ceremony -- to say our vows again.  I bought a new dress -- a white one.  No laughing, please.  Those of you who know Larry know that was not going to happen.   He asked, "Wasn't enough to do that once?"  Indeed.  Only Michael Moore has ever been able to get Larry in a suit coat of any kind since in the decades since our first ceremony.  

  In any case, I finally have enough frequent flyer miles to buy us both a ticket to go somewhere to commemorate our four decades together -- and those miles have to be used or they will be lost.  So, I booked us a trip.  

   This is where you come in.  If we are to enjoy our holiday jaunt and celebrate with a dinner somewhere other than Freddy's senior menu, we have to raise some bucks.  A modest motel/hotel and modest doings for a few days will not fit in our budget easily, and we do not want to annoy folks by appearing to be better set than we are.  2016 was a rough year, and we will need strength to face 2017 and beyond.

   Long ago my career as a political advocate launched with an email that was titled, "Will write for arifare."  Well I will now gladly write or do other work as a way to help fund our anniversary celebration.  Please donate -- and please share widely.  Let me know what I can do to repay you and I will gladly, gratefully do so.  We are blessed beyond measure to know anyone who read this to the end -- no matter if you donate our not.

  I love you, Larry.  You are right that four decades is a long time.  And I would marry you every day for the rest of my life -- until death us do part.  Happy 40th.

2013 will be a year of big changes for APU, and we need your support. In 2012, we helped mark the 5th anniversary of the release of SICKO, Michael Moore's 2007 documentary film on the broken U.S. health care system. We educated thousands of people about the need for a saner, more humane system in the U.S.

So, we've raised a fraction of what we need, but we do have some support promised to us if we pull this together, so please plan to donate a bit today.

So, who will be the brave soul who first contributes to the American SiCKO's 5-year anniversary event and launch of a national push for healthcare as a human right? Fixing this system isn't just a human right, it's an economic necessity for the future of this nation. Join us, June 30th, 2012, in Philadelphia. And help us raise the funds to bring the subjects of SiCKO together again. Please donate today.
