Bottles for A Cure
Dear Friends and Supporters:
The average person might not look forward to returning bottles and cans for the nickel deposit but that is a sentiment to which I cannot relate. I have made this task part of a personal crusade to fight breast cancer! Aided by my friends, family, and dearest supporters, I am on a mission to collect 1 million bottle returns so that I can write a check for $50,000 dollars to Upstate Medical University in Central New York. The money you help me raise will support breast cancer research, dollar for dollar.
Last year, I was able to write a $5,000 check for the 100,000 bottles I collected. Now, the stakes are even higher and the challenge, all the more difficult. Those 5 cent returns can add up more quickly than you can imagine, and I need your help!
I am all too familiar with this vicious disease as it has touched the lives of those closest to me, including my mother, grandmother, and great aunt. Fortunately, they are all survivors. However, my dear friend, the late Rod Roddy, the "Come on Down" announcer from the Price is Right, also suffered from colon, prostate, and breast cancer before tragically passing away in 2003. While breast cancer occurs mainly in women, many people do not realize that men have breast tissue and that they can develop breast cancer too.
I am just one volunteer in a sea of people fighting to combat this deadly killer. Any and all of your support is appreciated. If you can, please donate a dollar, a nickel, a dime, or even a penny to help me reach my goal!
This effort is all about the kindness of strangers and supporters like you!
Thank you for your generosity and kind hearts,
