I remember one of those end of summer weekends back in elementary school. I was on vacation with my parents. We were in the hotel room and the Jerry Lewis MDA telethon came on – this is the first time I ever remember watching it. Even as a child, I was amazed that all these people would dedicate so many hours in a row to help all those suffering from Muscular Dystrophy. Several years later, we were visiting my aunt in Florida and her son was working at one of the local telethon broadcasts. I remember being so excited to be on the set of a live television production. Never did I imagine that one day I would be one of Jerry’s Kids – as an adult!
Please take some time this weekend and tune in to your local telethon and please consider donating (no amount is too small) to this great cause.
Happy Labor Day!
