Just five days to go until this year's Extra Life event where I'll be (and I hope you, too) supporting Cincinnati Children's Hospital! Seriously, for those of you in the region, I don't know if you realize how fortunate we are to have a truly world-class facility like that here.
For 2012-2013, US News ranks Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center:
#8 Cardiology & Heart Surgery (#1 in my book, though, they saved my daughter's life)
#5 Diabetes & Endocrinology
#4 Neurology & Neurosurgery
and #4 Urology
That's a top five ranking for practically everything they even measure and top ten for everything, so if you have kids, if you know a kid or were maybe once a kid yourself, I hope you will take a minute and consider even a very small donation to help support this stellar resource that we share. One hundred percent of your donations goes to support the hospital and you can print your tax forms right from the site when you donate.
Now, if hard data doesn't do it for you, if that didn't inspire you to log onto Extra Life at http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.participant&participantID=29413
and donate even a dollar, then let me appeal to your emotions with the following video:Every Child
