Not sure how many (or to be honest, if any) folks who follow my BookLikes blog are in the New England area, but if you are, this is a very good cause!
My mom and I started volunteering at the local MS office when she was diagnosed back in '94. Although the MS Society office chapter up here is not what it once was, there is a core of folks who meet monthly and have a great support network via phone and internet. My mom and I (and many others from this gang) volunteer at the Brewer/Bangor walk which is coming up next month.
So far, we are at 3% of the fundraising goal of 41k. As someone whose budget tends to be fairly tight, I understand (and feel rather dirty asking for money) if folks do not have the funds to donate, but would appreciate if the word regarding this event could be spread :)
