It is Veterans' Day in the US and Armistice day in Europe and rightly we should sit back and reflect on the suffering of others and the more important things in life. So TMM feel it is an appropriate day to launch their Christmas (only 6 weeks away) Charity Appeal.
Last year we were collecting for Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital, but this year our choice was swayed by personal family experience and so we are hoping to raise money to fight Ovarian Cancer, a disease whose subtle early symptoms make it hard to detect.
OK, here is the hard sell. Team Macro Man have continued to shun commercialism and advertising and write when they can squeeze it into their spare time. But once a year we will be asking for a little back. Not for us, we do have day jobs that keep us going, but for a charity. For us it adds more of a purpose to what we do and for you? Well that's up to you. But as we said last year, if you have either saved or made a little money thanks to something we have written (no we don't do refunds) or even if we have just raised a smile, then perhaps you could help "Target Ovarian Cancer" help others.
Special Feature! - This appeal is perfectly tailored to those of you looking for the end of fiat money. What better way to get rid of your useless bits of paper than to give them to a charity that can use them to alleviate and prevent the suffering of others?
Oh and finally. If you are reading this on a syndicated site then good for this site! We will continue to support you as you have of us in posting this request.
With deepest thanks to you for your continued support,
Polemic, cpmppi and Nemo (Team Macro Man)
