Commentathon for a good cause...

Greg Hammond is gathering comments today for a good cause, to help in the battle against the breast cancer which claimed his wife Cheryl a year ago. In loving honor of her memory, he and others are pledging donations based on the number of comments he can garner in this single day.

His goal is to raise $10,000 to donate, and the more comments he collects today against this post, the more money will be raised. These need to be unique comments, so please add your encouragement and spread the word so that we can help him reach the goal! If you also choose to make a separate donation, that would be wonderful!

Here is a note Greg posted on the site early today :

NOTE: As of 9:00 p.m., March 31, we have about $6,000 in total pledges. If we get 1500 comments, and each of those commenters also donated just $3 apiece, we would hit our target of $10,000...

If you have not visited Greg's site before, you may want to read through his Chronology as well - it is a history of their lives that is sure to touch you deeply.

Hat tip to guest Dbie "AFSister" at Castle Argghhh! for the pointer.
