HELP - TeamFUMS Get Closer to $5000

My MS Walk is this Saturday May 17 and I'm still far away from reaching my goal of $5000 and I need your help. Please give what you can and help TeamFUMS be a top fundraiser in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Thank you for all the support you've given thus far.

Alright I'm in the home stretch of TeamFUMS fundraising.  The walk is this Saturday May 17, but your help is still needed. As of right now here is where TeamFUMS is standing with its MS Walk goal of $5000
As you see we are at 45% of our goal of $5000 and we are a Top 5 team in fundraising for the Grand Rapids MS Walk. And I really want to stay a Top 5 team but currently we are number 5 and 6,7,8 are catching but 3,4 are within reach. Call it hubris but I really want to be a Top 5 team so I can say I'm a Top 5 team and of course it will help me market TeamFUMS going forward.  I know Top 10 is good but I want Top 5 if not Top 3.  Therefore let the begging begin.

To be honest with everyone I never thought $5000 was realistic when I first set the goal about two months ago, but I dreamed big and hoped that something dramatic would result in me reaching that goal.  I even was worried that $2000 was out of reach but wanted a strong solid number to dream.  But here we are at almost $2500 and I am absolutely humbled by the generosity and love everyone has given to TeamFUMS. So many of you have bought t-shirts and made donations to help my battle against MS, and I can't thank you enough. Your love has brought a great sense of joy and accomplishment and driven me to keep writing TeamFUMS and stay committed to what I started. Thank YOU!

But we are not done, there is still time to make a difference.  I need your help. Please click on the button below to make a donation of any amount even a few dollars will help
But if you can't afford a donation there is so much more you can do.  Send this page to everyone and direct them to the donation page at

or to the easier to paste

or tell people to click on the Green MS Walk page when my site loads up that looks like this

Or collect money from them and make the donation yourself. Any way you can promote TeamFUMS and show people how a dollar will help battle MS. Just keep spreading the word, wearing the shirts, and saying you are part of TeamFUMS.  Any way you can support us goes a long way to fighting MS.

The good news is we have all summer to reach that $5000 goal and I will continue to fundraise after this weekend and then start fundraising for next year.  So fundraising is something that will never stop but this level of pleading won't continue. Next round I hope to do some larger fundraising event besides just asking directly for money, but let me not get ahead of myself.

At the end of it all I'm pleading, begging, hoping that anyone that reads this can donate a few dollars.  Just start with $5 and see what else you can do.

Please, please, please
Thanks You

And because funny is funny and to show that I'm not asking you to donate to and evil charity... there is this:
