Trevor and the Leukemia Society

After having turned my Rover hobby into a business 6 years ago, I decided I needed a new hobby: cycling.
Bought a fancy bike, bought a lot of kit to be able to ride the bike, and started riding in February. Here in Central PA, that's still winter.

And to keep me motivated, I've become a fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. In exchange for raising funds for blood cancer research, the LLS's Team In Training program is helping prepare for a 100 mile ride around Lake Tahoe in June.

Our training rides are now more than half distance, and I've raised more than 65% of my fundraising goal, but I need help to reach 100% of my goal.

I had no idea the number of Rover people in my life that have had Leukemia in their lives: some are survivors, some are parents, brothers, sisters. Help me continue the success' in blood cancer research!

Here's a link to my secure website:
http://pages.teamintraining.org/cpa/ambbr11/tgriffiths

The donations are fully tax deductible and 75% of your donation goes directly to blood cancer research.

Thanks!

Trevor

Great cause, Trevor. Jealous of the rolling terrain you get to train on out there in PA as well!

Already donated a while ago. Trevor is the guy that will give the shirt of his back or a part off his own Rover to keep you going.

Is there a way to donate without getting on their list?

Done

Happy to help out. As a survivor I can't express enough how grateful I am for these efforts.

Steve:
I've had a couple of customer's who've asked the same thing! One made a check out to me, one made a check to the business, and another gave me cash. I then write a check to the LLS and submit it under Cash Donations without enetering any donor info on the Donation form.
I would imagine a paypal payment to me would work as well.
Of course, all of these options require you to trust me!
There are a number of Rover people /names on the donation website that one may recognise, so I hope that is a useful indicator of my integrity.
Thanks again!
Trevor

Yeah I hate the way you have to give out so much info to donate. I used 5555555555 for the phone number and no@thanks.com for the email and it let it through. Of course they can send me paper spam now I guess.

Oh yeah, don't get me started on the non-profit health research/foundations. They've got marketing divisions that rival P&G - you wouldn't believe the paper I've received since donating a couple hundred bucks to the NKF.
Even had people show up at my doorstep, looking for me, representing foundations that were sold lists by orgs that got my dough.

Usually not this suspect of big orgs.. but as someone said here, let me get back to donning my tinfoil hat.
