A little bit off-topic but something good to end the week on: chocolate and service.
I have a friend down the street that got breast cancer last year – she was treated and supposedly everything is fine now. But it was very scary for her family and for her friends (like us). I’ve never donated to any cancer research or anything like that probably because I’m lazy and it I guess it isn’t the easiest thing in the world to do (like, say… buy some candy ;)) Plus I’m a little distrusting of some “non-profits” because I want to know that 100% (or close to it) goes to the actual cause.
Sometime this month (hey, Halloween is in 4 days!!) go to the store and buy the M&Ms that have the pink ribbon on the package. A portion of that purchase goes to the fight against breast cancer. It can’t be easier than that.
If you want to donate more, buy this for all of your halloween candy. If you don’t eat M&Ms then buy the peanut M&Ms and mail them to my house! I’m a peanut M&M junkie!!
(and for all the skeptics out there, here’s the official page: M&M press release)
