Wet Dogs Calendar 2009 - for Parkinson's Research!!
Help Team Fox raise funds for Parkinson's Research!
The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research's "Team Fox" is running the NYC marathon on November 2 to help raise funds for Parkinson's research. A lot of people only know of PD because of actor Michael J. Fox. He has done more than any public figure to raise awareness of this debilitating and horrific neurological disorder, in my opinion. I know he's 'just one person', but he is a hero in my book and for millions of others, who appreciate his against-all-odds guts and fury, get-things-done attitude and positive actions to help find answers to the crazy mystery that is Parkinson's. My hat is off to him!
Anyway, there is another great way that we can all help to raise funds for Parkinson's research, and - BONUS - we don't have to run a marathon to do it. The Fox Foundation has created the Wet Dog Calendar to help raise funds for Parkinson's research. I plan to order several of these calendars for friends and family for holiday gifts. It's not only an adorable calendar (something I need every year anyway) and full of cute doggies, but it supports Parkinson's Research (via the MJF Foundation) a full 100%! That's right - 100% of proceeds go to the MJF Foundation for Parkinson's Research. I cannot think of a better holiday gift than that! Double whammy of giving!!
