CF & a teddy bear

This is no time to be lazy! Just cause there's a hurricane stomping around all over the place, and kung fu-ing the crap out of everything, doesn't mean you can just sit there and not do me a favor.

You're on the computer, or some other device that has enabled you to pounce on the world wide web. Your eyeballs are intact and your fingers are itchy.

I can tell you are silently begging me to give you something to do. You are thinking, hmmm, I sure wish I had something cool to do; something that would impact lives.

Something that would make Squeegee happy.

I have two suggestions (cause I'm very thoughtful).

1. Sign up to be an organ & tissue donor. Sweet huh? It's simple, takes about two minutes and saves/impacts lives. Best gift ever. 

2. Vote. Nope, I'm not talking about a political election. I actually don't care what your political beliefs are. I'm talking about a teddy bear. 

Cystic Fibrosis Canada (CFC) submitted its name to adopt Zeddy, the Zellers bear.

What exactly am I talking about?

Zellers is a Canadian discount retail store. It is closing. Zeddy was their mascot. Now that Zellers is pushing up daisies, poor Zeddy is unemployed.

Click here to watch Zeddy get the heave-ho from the big boss, and then watch as he tries to deal with life in the wilderness.

CFC has a history with Zeddy. They partnered with Zellers in 1985 and together raised more than $27 million. That's a lotta coin. Pocket change for moi, of course.

The winner not only gets to adopt Zeddy, but also gets a $5000 donation. That's a nice chunk of change that could be used in a whole lot of good juicy ways. Research, treatment, advocacy, access to high quality medical care and more.

That's a lot of really cool and important stuff. The way I see it, it'd be pretty mean of you to not take a couple of seconds to click here and vote.

Okay, come on. I don't think you'd actually be mean deep down in your gut, I'm just trying to solicit the generosity from deep down in your soul.

Hope it worked.
