>Buy Matt A Drink
>I have redone the main page of Diabetoboy.com for the month of February for a campaign to raise donations for the Vasculitis Foundation in memory of my brother Matt. February 3rd would have been his 21st birthday, so I’d like to turn a depressing occasion into something positive.
The way it works is that traditionally on one’s 21st, drinks are bought for them. Since that can’t really be done for Matt, who is no longer with us, I am asking for small donations, the price of a drink, generally $3-7, to his cause to help research towards preventing and treating this disease. On the main page, click on the button to donate and that leads you to the secure page on the Vasculitis Foundation’s site where you can indicate that the funds are in memory of Matt Varagona. They will be in contact with me to keep up with how our effort is going.
I am also in talks to have events at several local bars and restaurants and will post them on here when I find out more.
Thanks for your support.
