Si’s note – Bruce Hornsby and this website’s community have long supported the ALS Association. I received this letter below in relation to a personal donation, but it also refers to the entire 20 Days project to raise precious funds for this vital charity. It’s a worthy testament, I think, to your generosity and the wonderful donations you made. Elsewhere, I’ve also mentioned our answer to the ice bucket challenge, and the writing of CiCi Reagan, whose mother Melissa inspired so many of your donations.
Dear Mr Twining,
The fight against ALS isn’t the same today.
You changed it. Because of your generous contribution, The ALS Association – DC/MD/VA Chapter continues to empower and support he nearly 600 families across the region that are currently battling this devastating disease. Your gift will have a powerful impact on their lives and the day-to-day challenges that they face. And for that, your kindness is deeply appreciated.
Thanks to you, these families will continue top benefit from medical equipment, assistive technology, clinic and home visits, support groups, respite care, and transportation assistance – all free of charge – and coordinated through the Chapter funded Care Services program.
The difference between a good organization and a great one is the support of its friends On behalf of the Chapter’s trustees, staff, and the families we serve, thank you for partnering with us in the fight against Lou Gehrig’s Disease. If you have any questions, I can be reached directly at XXX.XXX.XXXX. I would love to hear from you.
Once again, thank you for your generosity. The success of our organization is built on your support. We couldn’t do it without you.
