Did anyone participate in the MDA online fund raising? I was just wondering how many people raised the necessary $1600.00 dollars, to recieve an official MDA jacket?

How many of you who participated have recieved your jacket promised in November?

I participated and raised the necessary $1600 plus, and have basically been begging the MDA staff to find out where my jacket is, and why it hasn't been delivered. They answered once, and said it "was in the mail" FEDEX 3 day delivery, that was back around November 1, 2008. The next email, December 4, 2008, they haven't even bother to respond to my inquiry... it is now a full month and a half, and no jacket... I got a kick out of raising funds for kids, but gotta question the professionalism of the MDA staff in meeting their obligations. Just a word to the wise for next year, buyer beware. MDA hasn't met their obligations or promises, at least not yet.

MDA is a worthy cause for sure. BUT - If you feel like a change we could use your help and all the help we can get for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation Ride for Kids program (more info here ----- http://www.pbtfus.org/rideforkids ).
If you've never been to one - the Ride for Kids is one of the main fundrasising functions for the PBTF. There are 38 Ride for Kids scheduled for 2009 located across the country (see above website for the schedule). I have participated in the Los Angeles event the past 4 years (my daughter had a brain tumore 10 years ago and is a survivor), and my daughter and I have had the honor of being one of the events top individual fundraisers the past 3 years. As you can see it is a cause near and dear to my heart. The event in LA is great - for a $35 dollar (individual) entrance fee you participate in a police escorted ride for the approx. 800-1,000 bikes there. The ride lasts about 90 minutes, the last couple of years along the ocean around the Palo Verdes Peninsula. After the ride is the 'Celebration of Life' where the "STARS" (kids who have survived or are surviving a brain tumor) are interviewed and honored, as well as the top fundraisers (individuals, clubs, businesses, etc.). It's a great time - but heartbreaking. Every year a number of kids are honored, those who didn't make it. Anyways, one point that relates to this thread is the premiums. They change somewhat year to year, but just entering as an individual you get a T-Shirt and at the level of $2,500 last year you got a great riding leather jacket (very high qualtiy) with a great embroidered patch on the bake celebrating the 25th Anninversary of the Ride for Kids program (as well as a bunch of other stuff including a commerative plaque with you picture with some of the STARS). Take a look at their website it explains it all along with a calendar of events for 2009. If you can't make any event but would still like to help out please visit my fundraising website: http://www.firstgiving.com/mikeyork5
any help you cold provide qould be greatly appreciated not only from me but more importantly the KIDS. Ride Safe ---
