I know some of you are worried, thinking “Oh, shoot!! I forgot to donate to Greg’s 2014 Walk to End Alzheimer’s!! Dangit!!!” Well, friends, don’t worry… There’s still time! You can join my cousins Jim and Deeny and my Labor Day Aunt Janie and Uncle DG as well as my Labor Day Cousins Jane and AJ and give to this event. I will tell you like I tell you every year… The fastest way to get me to like you (or like you more than I already do) is to donate to this cause. So do yourself a favor and give. You can give here. If you don’t want to do that, you can also give over here. If that’s not your cup of tea (as the kids in England like to say) then you can give here. I would keep going, but by now you have surely noticed that all of those links are the same.
