    CHECK POST 123 FOR FINAL TALLY INFORMATION.


    My Friends,

    The missing children in America need 5 dollars from you. That's it. A 5 dollar donation to KlaasKids could make the difference on whether a missing child's information is seen all over the country.

    KlaasKids is sponswering the Fireball Run. Read about it here


    There are 35 racing teams. Each team receives 1000 posters of one missing child. The goal of the team is to hand out those fliers and post them in every place they go. The end goal is to recover America's missing kids.


    Here is a message from Marc Klaas. He can tell you so much better than I can:





    If about 5 percent of the people who visit Websleuths today donate 5 dollars we will have our money.

    Guys, I never ask anyone for money but I am asking you help out KlaasKids so that Marc can get the publicity needed for the missing kids the media ignores. You can make a difference with a small donation.

    5 bucks, tax deductable, right here. Come on. We can do this for Marc Klaas, for Polly, for all the missing children. 5 dollars ( or more if you want) that's all it takes.



    Thank you.

    I always donate to KK every year (along with Texas Equasearch), and this year will be the same. Though I do have to make it $25.00 instead of $50.00 cuz I'm unemployed-- plus I need my beanie bear :)

    Is there a way I can reference WS in my donation? or is that against TOS?

    GO MARC!

    I like that you can donate without having to use your credit card on line. I'll call first thing in the AM.

    ETA: I'm going for the bear also!

    Did it! I've been reading your posts involving printing, Tricia, and I just didn't know anyone who could help. I feel good about helping you and Marc, but just one thing: Is there some kind of FB linky I can post to perhaps get MORE people to help? Thanks!

    Done.

    Marc is a class act who manages to make a positive choice to help others every single day. I admire him.

    Do we know if Marc will be running in part of the race? I'd love to see a photo of him at the finish line posted here. Team Marc!!

    Don't know when all the money has to be in but maybe we coulld have a couple "post-a-thons" ("Web-a-thons"?) over the next couple of weeks where we have a thread like this and whoever makes a donation gets to post on it. (or maybe a private thread where whoever donated got to say anything they want about another poster without getting timed out. :) (LOL, I bet a lot of people would pay five bucks to do that!) or something similar but more positive).

    ETA: Don't know if anyone thinks the idea above is decent or not but I wanted to add to it. We cold have people volunteer and sign up to be 'roasted' by their fellow posters so they would know it was all in good fun and not be offended. Then for five or ten bucks you could post about or too the persons being roasted.
