Not To Be Left Out...

Handsome accepted my ALS Ice Bucket Challenge yesterday!

I'll let the video speak for itself, except to say, I really loaded that bucket with 
fresh ice while he was talking to the camera. You'll laugh at my failed attempt 
to sneak behind the waterfall after I started the camera. I wanted to crop myself 
out, but he's convinced it's one of the funniest parts of the video. It stays.

I was asked yesterday if there is also a link for donating to DM research. After 
asking some of my Corgi friends who they thought the best research facility is, and
doing a little research of my own, I can share the information with all of you.
 
Funds can be donated directly to research conducted at the University of Missouri,
 College of Veterinary Medicine, specifying that the funds go to Dr. Joan Coates 
for the work she's doing. You can click here to read more about her and her work. 
 
She is also collaborating closely with Dr. Timothy Miller at Washington University in
St. Louis on a drug therapy project to benefit ALS patients. It's my sincere prayer that
 the work being done in both facilities will ultimately find a cure for both diseases.

Have fun with Handsome's video. He sure made me laugh when I watched it...
and I'm even good for a little giggle, too. Can you tell I was having fun?
 
By the way, The Ice Bucket Challenge has raised a whopping
$53.3 MILLION in only 25 days! 
That's pretty incredible, don't you think?

Thanks again for reading all the way to the end of this post.

Brilliant! Your husband is a good sport to do this and the creeping behind the fountain had me on tenderhooks waiting for the bucket . We are doing the same in the UK for a Cancer Research organisation.

What next?
Take care
