Hey Lady, I'm just trying to keep the kids from getting run over by a car. When people are out in the lane of traffic someday they are going to get hit. Maybe you don't, but when I'm driving I'm watching the light, the other cars and now I'm supposed to make sure I don't hit some kids running around in the street, coming out from in front of a truck or van and impposible for me to see. So just park your lips and engage your brain.
You are so sad and ridiculous. and learn to spell...maybe you should "park your lips and engage your brain." Since driving seems to be a problem for you maybe those 4 weekends during the year you should stay home. I hope someone is as nice to you as you are to others.

You should lecture someone on their spelling. Did you read your post? Check this sentence;Since driving seems to be a problem for you maybe those 4 weekends during the year you should stay home. That is one humdinger. Maybe he's just trying to save a kid's life before some woman comes along farding, and texting and runs over him. I mean, didn't a guy get killed that was wearing an orange vest, waving an orange flag?

I think we are off track. These kids are doing a lot of good. They give up their own time and comfort to help raise money for childhood cancer.

Is canning the safest way to get donations? No. BUT if you don't see those college students out there, do you send in a dollar (or 5) to THON? Probably not.

I never realized how many children are diagnosed with cancer every single day. I am SO VERY lucky that my children are healthy.

Maybe instead of drinking a $5 Starbucks coffee we could all skip 1 day a week and send that money to THON. That way these kids could stay in their nice warm houses and you can find something else to do besides criticize.

PS - I hope my spelling passes your standards
