I was away for the weekend but when I arrived home my 17th and 18th Christmas cards were in MailboxGeeding.
The first card is fromÂ the Weaver family of Mesquite, TX who were even nice enough to include a donation to help fight lupus.
The other card was actually inside a package and is from Shawn of Baton Rouge, LA.Â Shawn is a longtime reader of BON and knows my heart, and I’m pretty sure he’s BON’s biggest fan in all of Louisiana.Â Last year he was kind enough to sendÂ a Dallas Cowboys floor mat that is still on display at our front door, and this year he kept tradition by sending Dallas Cowboys floor mats for automobileGeeding.Â I didn’t think a Saints fan could ever be so nice. ;-)Â On top of that, Shawn and his family included a donation to help fight lupus.Â
DogGeeding insisted on being in the picture of our new floor mats.
Thank you Weavers and Shawn and your family for the cards, donations,Â and helping to fight lupus!
So thatâ€™s 10 cards from Texas, two cards from NY, and one from North Carolina,Â Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Louisiana, and Canada.Â Â
With a total of 18 cards, thatâ€™s $18 Iâ€™ll donate to help fight lupus.
A small recap of the experimentÂ of me trying to see if any of you are willing to send me a Christmas card:
Option 1:Â You can make a direct donation to the Lupus Research Institute in memory of Kim Geeding.Â Have the acknowledgement sent to my address, and Iâ€™ll consider that my Christmas card.Â Iâ€™ve done some research, and out of all the lupus organizations I feel most comfortable with the Lupus Research InstituteÂ came out on top.
Option 2:Â If you just want to send a card and no money, then I will total up allÂ the cards received before Dec 25, and for each card donate a dollar (up to $50) to the Lupus Research Institute.Â If you include any money, Iâ€™ll make sure to donate the funds directly to the Lupus Research Institute.Â
Send all cards to
Keith â€œBagOfNothingâ€ Geeding
421 Vista Noche Dr
Lewisville, TX 75067-8345
Please be sure to include the â€œBagOfNothingâ€ in the name so I know the card comes from a reader and not the dentist or plumber.
