Less Talk More Action" Challenge by tommie on 2001-09-15 10:30:53

OK, I'm challenging you guys to make some donations. Tater has provided some convenient links. I have been unable to get the NY Times 9/11 fund to take my money, but there is a similar 9/11 fund at Helping.org which is sponsored by United Way of New York. I donated to that and the New York Firefighters 9-11 Disaster Relief Fund. Your turn! Let's here from you!

  I rarely take the time to do anything in life but generate income for myself and the prostitutes I call my friends. tommie, make it easy on me and other lazy bastards by providing the direct link to their (9/11 fund Helping.org)credit card billing page. I will contribute generously. Thank you for your "Less Talk More Action-->Challenge" I love to meet a challenge and then have it kiss my arse after its been whipped. This will be no exception! I can't say that I would want to be with those Fire/Rescue crews on top of a pile of ashen, now soggy, and unstable detritus. I certainly would not be keeping my biscuits down after pulling twisted and mangled body parts out of this wreckage. No sir, my monetary treasure will have to substitute and this is all the more reason to be generous! I am a human being of little faith but the little faith I have could not and would not let me stand before the families of these victims and say there is no hope of a spiritual reunion to unite them once again. There is enough hoplessness in the world to go around and I certainly don't need to add to it. I can state the obvious, that these dead are dead and that flys are beginning a new cycle of life from the decay but this is only what I can see. We have 5 sensory organs in our bodies and I have been betrayed by all 5 in the past. I don't believe the future will be much different. Be safe and good luck.

should take you directly to the September 11th United Way fund. I've also changed the Red Cross link to go to Amazon's page, which seems a bit more reliable. They've collected over 5 million dollars there since Tuesday. Over $100 million altogether, I've read, has come in to all the different organizations soliciting donations over the Net.

  My employer has offered to match contributions up to half a million dollars through their own fund, which will go to the Red Cross. Check to see if you can make your money go farther with corporate matching.

  Have you taken action yet? If not, theres still time. In fact time is all thats left.....to heal or just continually get smashed until the memory is blacked out. I've been doing both.......my health is suffering. Maybe I should stop the getting smashed part and just heal. In the meantime......... anyone care for a cocktail??
