Due to a work trip, I spent about 4 hours in the Charlotte, NC airport this weekend. If you’ve never been, it’s pretty nice as airports go. Lots of good food choices, plenty of motorized walkways, and most importantly, a lot of comfortable seating. It was that seating that really got me to thinking. The recent 99% movement is mostly about basics: basic fairness of the economic system (or lack thereof some might say), basic medical care, and a basic standard of living. Whether you believe those folks wound up where they are through their own choices or because the deck was stacked against them from the get go, it really is about basics and having just a little comfort in your life. And when you put it in that light:
I know that I think so, and I bet you do too. And you can help me move towards that goal by joining the BecomingTimberman 99%. As of today, I have raised just over 1% towards my goal of being able to donate enough to cover 5 rocking chairs. With the raffle ending a month from today, now is the perfect time to donate and get in on a chance for some terrific prizes! I’m working hard to add even more to the prize collection, but I think we’ve got a great bundle going so far with more on the way. Please consider donating, and becoming one of the 99%.
PS. Please note, I understand the seriousness of the problems many people face, and I was just making an attempt at some wry humor. If you are offended, I apologize, and I hope you can see this for what it is, an honest attempt to bring focus onto the needs of these families.
PPS. I had a kick ass week of training last week, and this week is looking even stronger.
PPPS. I went to Minnesota and it is REALLY cold there. I’m glad I live in a place where it is 60 degrees and sunny right now. But I liked seeing the snow.
PPPPS. My legs are sore from training in January. Seriously, its January and my legs are sore. This is awesome!
PPPPPS. Did you see the new ad with Matthew Broderick making a play on his Ferris Bueller character? I was so hoping it was a teaser trailer for a sequel.
PPPPPPS. Are you still reading this? Really? The post is over. Go donate!
