#potatosaladretaliation

Organized by: Sally Goldstein-Elkind

THE STORY:

For those of you who may not know, my father was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease over 4 years ago; my mother was diagnosed with ALS over a year ago.

So it's simple. If somebody can raise over 10,000 dollars for potato salad, I don't see why I can't raise money for a much worthier cause.
Hey, I get it. I like food too. But I think we can all agree that research for diseases, including these two is a tad bit more important.

So I am challenging myself to try and raise $10,000 dollars in honor of my parents; $5,000 for Parkinson's research, and $5,000 for ALS. I know it is not a small number, but I have faith with the power of social media, and the power of kindness, that it is an achievable goal.

I won't be running any marathons, or 5ks...I would need a whole new fundraiser for a recovery fund after that. I am simply hoping that you all will be compelled to donate even a few dollars, or to at least spread the word about what I am trying to do.

However, everybody does like a little incentive, so to sweeten the pot a bit, I, Sally Goldstein-Elkind, will....ready?...DYE PART OF MY HAIR PURPLE!
(After being diagnosed with ALS, my mother was inspired to try to become a hospital clown, and wants her name to be Violet, because her fav. color is purple...who knows maybe ill throw some green in there for my dad..)

SO PLEASE! Consider making a donation of any size, and be sure to spread the word about this and use the hashtag #potatosaladretaliation.

Thank you all just for taking the time to read this!

NOW LETS MAKE THIS HAPPEN!!
