There is only one 24-hour movie marathon for charity out there, and I’m going to it! Support children with leukemia by visiting my fundraising page at FirstGiving.com. Don’t worry – I won’t let you down. I am a battle-hardened veteran of thirteen movie marathons. I take personal pride in never having fallen asleep for any of them. I will obliterate 1,440 minutes of pop culture and then write all about it on this weblog. And it is all for a good cause!
I have raised $150 so far and need just $50 more to reach my fundraising goal for Children’s Leukemia Foundation of Michigan. The 24-hour movie marathon starts at 10:00 AM this Friday! That’s just five days away!
If you would like to support me, click here! I will be at the theater and watching movies for the entire 24 hours, and you’ll know it through my live weblogging on this site. It isn’t as easy as it looks – I’ve been the only one to stay awake in the last four movie marathons my wife and I have thrown! Trust me, I’m a professional movie marathoner!
Note for my fellow GE co-workers – I hear GE offers company match for personal donations like this. I’m getting details from my boss. Stay tuned!
I need your help! First and foremost, I want people to come with me! You can register at the event’s website. You get 24 hours of movies, unlimited free popcorn and pop, candy swag bag, free lunch, dinner, midnight snack, and breakfast, and “red carpet” photos. Doors open at 9:30 AM on Friday, June 21st and movies last from 10:00 AM to 10:00 AM.
If you can’t come, I could really use your support! My personal fundraising page is here. 100% of the funding is spent helping Michigan families and $0.83 of each dollar donated goes to patients and their families.
