Yes! We did the #ALSIceBucketChallenge! Indy Tribal, Dark Side Tribal, & Sevanti Tribal, you are next! (Do what you want. ;))
This is the DDBD ALS Ice Bucket Challenge!! Done after a hot performance at the 4th Street Festival of the Arts in Bloomington, Indiana, August 30th, 2014….
After posting enough of these, I finally got wrangled into doing it myself.
I’d like to add 2 more charities that are near and dear to me that I’m donating to:
Children’s Organ Transplant Association http://www.cota.org
Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard http://mhcfoodpantry.org/
This is Chester. When I was in Afghanistan I got a care package from one of those “Adopt a Soldier” programs that lets families send care packages to service men and women who are deployed overseas. Anyway, I got this care package, and it came with the usual stuff: Baby wipes, crackers, peanut butter, the Dad threw in a pack of cigarettes, and there was some jerky. But there was also a little beanie baby gold fish and a hand written note from a 7 year old girl that said
“Dear Soldier, (I wasn’t even mad)
I hope you are doing well. I’m sorry you have to miss thanksgiving with your family. This is my friend Chester. He keeps me safe from monsters, but I think you need him more than I do. I hope he keeps you safe from the monsters you’re fighting. Take good care of him for me”.
You bet your ass that little fish was in my pocket every time I went on patrol.
Each and every one of you shall now receive a chariot! Thou shalt receive a chariot! Everyone shall receive a chariot! Thou shalt receive a chariot! Thou shalt receive a chariot! Thou shalt receive a chariot! Thou shalt receive a chariot! Each and every one of you, you all shall receive a chariot!
