THE STORY:

Headed to Michigan with the MINIs and just discovered the charitable cause, near and dear to my heart ..

I  was already headed to Michigan with the MINIs for the 2017 attempt to break the Guinness World Book record for most MINIs in a parade (with Drew as my  co-pilot!!) and as I was reading different blogs and websites, I  discovered that the charitable cause for the event this year is to raise  money for Parkinson's Research - as many of you know, a cause near and  dear to my heart. 

For those who do not know, my Dad, Ed, was a 26 year survivor of Parkinson's (early onset) 

I saw the purple Parkinson's T-shirt - not that I don't already have plenty of MINI T-shirts! - but I  thought it would be commemorative on several fronts - love my MINI adventures and  love my Dad (who passed away just about 11 years ago) so I was all set  to buy one. Then I saw the shirt is the result of fund-raising .. I  planned to make a donation to claim a shirt and then thought: why stop  at $100? 

Maybe others who are friends of mine and/or care about the  cause would like to participate, also.
Please DO NOT feel  obligated. If there hasn't been $100 donated by the end of this  campaign, I will make up the difference. 

And whatever has been donated, I  will personally match. 

In memory of my Dad.
Thanks ..
