A Challenge to Support the Lublin Family and Fight Cancer

UPDATE 8/7/08 8:30ET: It’s time show off now… don’t stop at $1500. Any additional funds beyond $1500 will go directly to the Sheila L. Lublin Memorial Fund, c/o Lupus Foundation of America-Phila. Tri-State Chapter, 25 Washington Lane, Suite 39-1, Wyncote PA 19095. (Sheila suffered from Lupus herself) If you don’t remember how to write checks and feel strongly called to use your credit card, you are welcome to continue contributing to the American Cancer Society in Sheila’s name, as the Lublin family has always felt strongly about giving generously to ACS.

The response from the AgentGenius community has been so overwhelming to support Bill Lublin and his family at this terrible time. Bill lost his wife yesterday and today the support plans began with a simple goal to raise a few hundred dollars to be bale to supply food to the family over the next several days. Over $500 was raised in a few short hours.

We now set our sights to raise money for Bill’s favorite charity: the American Cancer Society

I just got off the phone with Benn and Lani and they have issued a challenge to raise $1500 by Monday to support Bill and donate to ACS in his wife Sheila’s name. Benn said, “We will blow away the $1500 goal.”

    I’m in for $100. The only reason I mention that is that I hope someone will up the ante.

    Bill and Sheila are not only worth it, but they deserve it. I can’t hug the man from 300 miles away, but I hope this helps.

    Count me in as well – I had given $50, but I think the challenge is something we all should take. Nothing like supporting a family member and feeling you are helping in some minute way eventhough the distance is so big. Here’s a (((((virtual hug)))))) for Bill and family.

    I think it’s great that folks are stepping up, and matching donations.

    But I also think it’s important to note that ANY contribution is important. Think what would happen if everyone that read this post or any of the other posts out there gave just $1 each… one lousy buck. That’s a candy bar. It’s a quart of gasoline. If you work a minimum wage job, that’s 10 minutes of your time….

    I dropped some in the kitty as well. I (we-Jen and I and EricOnSearch) could not help but match the generosity of good people doing the right thing. I have never had the pleasure of meeting Bill or Sheila, but my heart goes out to him at this time of extreme sadness and loss.

    Times are tough for many of us, but I was able to scrape together $100, especially since any overflow goes to what took my dad.

    @Nick My mom is also a cancer survivor. I was happy to donate for Bill and for mom. But let’s not stop at $1500. Anything beyond $1500 will go to the Lupus Foundation in Sheila’s name.

    Thanks for putting this together Brad. My heart goes out to Bill and his family. I chipped in and hope it helps.
