Fundraising that does not cost me any money!

So I have asked a million questions and it looks like there is a great way to fundraise for the National Kidney Foundation that does not cost anyone a thing. You can purchase a $5 gift card to Kroger or $25 gift card to Giant Eagle through the NKF. You can then reload this card at the customer service desk. 5% of all money spent on that gift card will be donated to the NKF.
So just spending a couple of minutes at the customer service counter could raise a lot of money for the NKF. Neal knows exactly how much I HATE the customer service desk at Kroger, but I will suck it up for a good cause.

If you are interested, let me know. I will coordinate purchasing the initial gift card. I was warned that the customer service desk may have no awareness to this, so if you ask them any questions do not be surprised when you get a blank stare, which is what they are trained to do. The sku on the gift card is what ties the spending to the NKF.

My assumption is you will get your gas discounts when you reload the gift card, but I am not 100% sure. I can let you know after I get my gift card.

We are hoping to get rich quick with this CVS contest. The story is "Selfless Acts" I would say Ryan and Leslie deserve the $25k! Hopefully they will be selfless when they win and share their winnings!

Busy Weekend

Friday a few of us went to the Mansfield Reformatory. It was a blast. They have a haunted house that runs through the old prison. We took a few pictures.

Ryan turned 30 this week! Happy birthday to him. Ryan also ran the Columbus Half Marathon. Very impressive!!!!!!!!! Very proud of him. He deserves the nap he got.

Joey on the other hand did not deserve the nap. We went fishing on Sunday to Lake Erie. We didn't catch anything but Joey caught a nap on the way home. Must be nice.
