CMMRF: 14 Days Left!!
By Right Puissant Companion G. Thomas “Tom” Taylor III
General Grand Principal Conductor of the Work
Companions, we only have 14 days to go to meet our $50,000 Challenge Gift. As of this past weekend, we had raised $32,700 toward our goal. Have you made you contribution to CMMRF yet? Can you consider an additional donation? During the pandemic all charities have seen a drop in giving and CMMRF has also. The research continues and the need is greater than ever before.
We are entering a period of Grand Assemblies that continue to be virtual. While there are many advantages to virtual Assemblies, most important being greater attendance, we do not have the opportunity to conduct “basket raffles”, silent auctions, etc. to increase donations. However, consider this … You are not attending a Banquet thereby saving the $50 per person you would have spent, not to mention the new dress your wife would need. How about donating a portion of the dollars saved to CMMRF? Just think, Banquet non-attendance, average 100 people, times $50 would equal $5000 donations from your jurisdiction to CMMRF!! Since stem cells can be harvested from human fat tissue, we would be funding research not contributing to the material supply!
Our Fundraising goal for CMMRF for the 2021 year is $500,000. There will be plenty of opportunities through-out the year to make your mark on research into Heart Disease, Diabetes, Peripheral Arterial Disease, stroke and more. Thank you for your past support and for your future support to make lives better.
