    Thumbs up 2014 Watercraft Ride for Dad charity, request for donations

    Each summer M447 and myself participate and support the Watercraft Ride for Dad charity.
    100% of the donations go to support men's prostate cancer research and education.

    This is the only charity that I ask others to contribute to, and only for a short time.

    The majority of watercraft enthusiasts are male and we are all susceptible to this.

    If either of us have been able to help you in some way through these forums, I ask that you now consider making a donation.

    Note: If you are in Canada you will receive a tax deductible donation receipt.
    For those in USA or elsewhere outside Canada, even without the tax deduction, you can still donate.

    Please click this link to support my greatest supporter.

    Thanks for bringing this problem forward , most men are silent for the cause and with no merit. My father died of prostrate cancer too early.

    Education awareness and donations need to be addressed.

    Get your PSA checked and talk to your doctor about screening NOW!

    thanks K447 for bringing it forward

    C'mon guys - If K447 ever helped you or answered any of your questions, the least you could do is donate $10 for all the time, work, blood, sweat, and tears he puts into this forum!!!! It only takes a minute or two of your time.....

    I would like to say a wholehearted THANK YOU to all of you who are supporting me on my Watercraft Ride For Dad. You are very generous, and I appreciate your kind donations.

    K447 & I look forward to sharing our experiences with you after our ride. It's a great day on the water for a very important cause that can affect any one of you guys.

    I'd love it if you can help K447 reach his fundraising goal.

    Thanks so much,

    M447

    Thanks for your donation!

    Still have a long way to go, dollar wise.

    The actual WATERCRAFT Ride for Dad on the Rideau is NEXT weekend, July 12, 2014. Only seven days remain for donating before the ride date.

    If anyone does not want to use their credit card online to submit a donation, you can Paypal me the money directly. I will then donate the same amount on your behalf.

    I just donated $20. My grandfather passed from prostate cancer in 04. Wish it could be more as you have helped me numerous times over the last few years. The video on pump removal was worth it all. Thanks and have fun.

    This is a very good idea but sadly.....
    They pay there CEO over a million a year
    Compensation of Leaders (FYE 12/2012)
    Compensation % of Expenses Paid to Title
    $1,088,883 2.56% Jonathan W. Simons President, CEO


    They only receive 7% of there annual funds from donations. There operating expenses yearly are 7 million. They receive 38 million in grants and 7 million in donation. And out of the 7 million to operate 1 million of that goes to the CEO??? That's almost 84 grand a month!
    I want a cure but won't donate to the million dollar a year salary to the CEO of a cancer nonprofit.
