A chance to make someone’s life better

Dear friends, family, and curious onlookers,

As many of you know, I will be joggling the Chicago Marathon on October 7th this year.  It’ll be the 10th time I do this marathon and I’m looking forward to having a great race.

To make this year’s Chicago Marathon more special, I’m trying to raise money for a worthy cause.  This is where I need your help.  Would you please consider making a donation to help the world’s poor help themselves?  Just click here to make a donation. 

Global Business Assist
The group that I am working with is called Global Business Assist (GBA).  They are a non-profit organization devoted to helping the poor help themselves.  The way they do it is by making micro-loans that help create thriving economies in poor countries.  According to GBA, as little as $50 can help a family feed themselves for life.

This idea is great because instead of just giving people a one-time assist, they teach people how to become self sufficient.  It’s like the old adage “give a man a fish and he eats for a day, teach him to fish and he eats for a lifetime.”  GBA is dedicated to teaching people to help themselves.

Thank you so much for any donation you can give.   I’ll send a note to let you know how the joggling marathon went.  If you’re in the Chicago area on October 7, come out and cheer us runners on.  The race starts at 7 am and lasts until about noon.  Your support helps us immensely.
