Lately I heard on Wholewheatradio about Mary Travers, of the Peter Paul & Mary folk-group. She's suffering from leukemia and is hopefully getting a bone marrow transplant in the New York hospital where she'll be for 6 weeks or more. Let's all help her get through this, even if you don't know her. That would be a good use of the internet, to get people from all over the world to join for a good cause. Forget your selfish thoughts to blog about for a moment and help a lady in distress.
You can do this by sending her 'get well' wishes, something to cheer her up, to the special email-address firstname.lastname@example.org. Let's hear it for the girl!
