This is Chester. When I was in Afghanistan I got a care package from one of those “Adopt a Soldier” programs that lets families send care packages to service men and women who are deployed overseas. Anyway, I got this care package, and it came with the usual stuff: Baby wipes, crackers, peanut butter, the Dad threw in a pack of cigarettes, and there was some jerky. But there was also a little beanie baby gold fish and a hand written note from a 7 year old girl that said
“Dear Soldier, (I wasn’t even mad)
I hope you are doing well. I’m sorry you have to miss thanksgiving with your family. This is my friend Chester. He keeps me safe from monsters, but I think you need him more than I do. I hope he keeps you safe from the monsters you’re fighting. Take good care of him for me”.

You bet your ass that little fish was in my pocket every time I went on patrol.

Just so everyone is aware, there is a bunch of misleading info being spread around re: ALS research - the “27%” figure is based on previous years’ annual funding; furthermore, the remainder goes to improving the quality of life of those suffering from ALS. Given that the annual funding is approximately 16M, that’s just over 4M spent on decreasing their suffering. It isn’t greed, it’s a lack of money.”

Shut up already.

The ALS Association has a 4-star rating from Charity Watchdog. 

And the next time you start to complain about a charity either a) working on multiple fronts (because that’s what ALSA does—both seeking a cure and helping people suffering now) or b) daring to have administration expenses—let’s see how long you can last, much less tackle a cause, without printer paper and an internet connection. 

As someone who has watched a family member die from a neuro-degenerative disease; funding to develop better wheelchairs and bedsore creams is *just* as important as funding research to cure the disease itself…

A friend of mine posted an update from one of HER friends to FB earlier.  Her dad has ALS.  The ALS foundation came out to see if they could put in a ramp for his wheelchair, but they couldn’t afford it because of the kind of ramp he needed for the kind of house they had.

This week they called back and said hey, the thing is, we suddenly have a bunch of money, so we’re coming out to build that ramp.  And they did.  She posted pics.

So if you feel like bitching about the ice bucket challenge…reconsider.

Thanks to iangalager, all I can think of is the Black family as the family from Arrested Development!

Just imagine it though:

Walburga’s head pops up in a fireplace.

Sirius: Hello?

Walburga: *Shrieks*

Sirius: Mother, you’ve got to stop starting conversations like that.

-

Sirius: I think the reason you and I always fight is that ever since we were little, Father always played us off each other.

Regulus: Father said it was your fault.

-

Regulus: I guess Mother wanted me to have something new. Sweet old thing.

Sirius: Only two of those things describe Mother.

-

Walburga: Regulus is a nervous wreck right now! He’s joining the Death Eaters for God’s sake!

Sirius: You volunteered him!

Walburga: I knew you were going to throw that in my face!

-

Walburga: I love all my children equally.

-Earlier That Day-

Walburga: I don’t care for Sirius.

-

Sirius: Come on, Bellatrix! We’ve had some good times, haven’t we?
