*And yes, that’s all you get today b/c it’s the day before THON and that’s where we met and I just need to remind you all to COMMENT COMMENT COMMENT b/c tomorrow is the last day to raise money via comments!  10 cents for EVERY SINGLE COMMENT!!  Get typing!  And get excited–tomorrow will be some of my favorite THON pics and vids from the years!

THON Update: 2/3-2/8

Okay, so THON is just 11 days away!  Which means that there are only 11 more days to make your comments count!!!

For those of you who may just be stumbling on this site, click here to read about what I’m doing.  5 cents for every comment on every new post b/w November 12 and February 20, up to $100.  I’m not counting pingbacks or my own comments either.  I’ve decided to switch things up a bit.  You guys have been great with the comments so from now until THON weekend, I’ll be donating 10 cents per comment i/o just 5!

The total for the past (admittedly short) week is:

$4.10 (w/a few from Fbook too!)

The total so far is:

$55.25

Keep up the comments!!!  ForTheKids!!

THON Update: 1/26-2/2 (Plus other exciting stuff!)

Okay, so here’s the haps today kiddos.  It’s February 3.  Do you KNOW what that means?!  It means that THON is 17 days away!!!  That’s right, THON starts February 20 which means that this is the last month to comment for charity!!  EVERY comment you leave is worth 10 cents and that 10 cents goes to the Hershey Medical Center’s 4 Diamonds Fund.  Just think, YOUR comments are bringing us 10 cents closer to finding a cure for pediatric cancer!

So what else can you do to help?  A lot of people have been me asking that, so I want to let you know.  First, check out THON’s Web site (thon.org) to look into donating and/or to get a really great rundown of what THON is.  You can check out pictures of past THON weekends, plus THON videos (WARNING: Do not watch at work.  You will be reduced to tears.)  You may even see someone you know.

If you’re crafty, why not write dancer mail?  Mail call is an event for the dancer’s that happens in the wee hours of Sunday, after the dancers have been awake and on their feet for 30+ hours!  Friends and family send cards, gifts, toys–anything to cheer up their dancer.  You can help too by writing generic dancer mail (cards that say “Great job!” “You can do it!” and more THON-centric quotes like “One day we will dance for joy, until then, we dance for a cure” and, as always, “FOR THE KIDS!!!”) which can be sent to:

Mail Call
Random Dancer Mail
210 HUB
University Park, PA 16802

If you want more information about dancer mail or anything else THON related, feel free to ask!!

Now, on to this week’s totals:

$7.30 (with a few comments via Fbook instead of the posts!)

The total so far is:

$51.15

Keep up the comments!!!  FOR THE KIDS!!!!
