This is a parent at one of our schools- she has started the Ian’s Rainbow Flu Foundation which provides flu vaccines for families who can’t afford it.
“We never realized that the flu could be so serious and work so fast. We lost our precious child that day. Glenn and I vowed to tell our story to as many people as possible so that they will take the flu seriously. We pray that no else has to go through what we go through everyday. ask three things of you. First, follow your instincts. No one knows your child as well as you do. Second, count your blessing everyday. Lastly, tell your loved ones how much they mean to you.”
I GOT MY FLU SHOT FRIDAY- HAVE YOU GOTTEN YOURS?
Today, Dec. 8, marks the 29th anniversary of the death of John Lennon.The former Beatle was shot by Mark David Chapman outside of his New York apartment building, the Dakota. Today- his vision still lives on.
In 1971, John Lennon expressed his vision of hope, peace and a world free of poverty through his powerful song “Imagine”. Decades later, his lyrics continue to influence and inspire. Lennon’s mission lives on as his wife, artist and musician Yoko Ono Lennon has joined Hard Rock International for IMAGINE THERE’S NO HUNGER, a global campaign to benefit WHY – a nonprofit organization that strives to fight against hunger and poverty around the world. Dedicated to its LOVE ALL, SERVE ALL motto, 100% of net proceeds from Hard Rock’s campaign will directly benefit WHY and its grassroots partners around the globe, that have developed ways to feed children worldwide who are victims of poverty and also teach them farming and entrepreneurial skills for the future.
Mary Travers passed away today. After successful recovery from leukemia through a bone marrow/stem cell transplant, Mary succumbed to the side effects of one of the chemotherapy treatments. Another beautiful voice silenced by cancer…let’s stop this disease!
Once again this year I am leading an effort for the fight against breast cancer in honor of our friend and colleague Cynthia Simms, who is a cancer survivor!

Please consider being a part of this important event and for a great cause. I understand this year has been a tough year on everyone financially but if you donate just one dollar and ask your family and friends to in turn donate just one dollar the proceeds add up fast. You can easily make donations by linking to the webpage I set up through the cancer society. (The link is above under the walk information) You can make donations online and so can your friends and family. If you prefer to give donations the “old fashioned” way that is okay too – just contact me.
Last year we had a group of us walk and it was a fun experience. It does not take up your whole day and because it is right there at South park Mall you can go to lunch after the walk or shopping etc. I will bring breakfast for everyone – just let me know if you are planning to join. It really was a great time for all who participated.
We are all affected by cancer, whether it be a mother, sister, aunt, friend and coworker. Here is our opportunity to walk together and make a difference. This is NOT limited to Carrier employees – you are welcome to bring family members, friends etc. The more we get the more we help.
You can visit www.cancer.org/stridesonline to learn more about Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. I have also put pamphlets and information in the break room for those who want to take information home to family or friends.
You can also make a donation and take advantage of the matching gift program for any donations they choose to make over $25 at the following link: https://www.easymatch.com/utc/
Please contact me if you would like to be part of a walking team. I would like to ask if you can let me know by early next week. Consider being a part of this event – it is for a good cause and a good person. You can contact me by phone at 704-599-4550 ext 4059 or by email at email@example.com.
I got this from my friend Vanessa and I wanted to share it in case anyone was interested (especially those near Rochester). It is a golf tournament with dinner included ($99 solo player; $396 foursome) or just the dinner ($40). Anyway, here’s her e-mail:
I hope everyone is doing well. I am writing to invite you to learn about the 4th annual Shnozfest- a fundraiser in memory of my brother, Jonathan. This year Shnozfest will be raising funds for the Penfield High School Scholarship Association by means of a golf tournament and/or dinner with many raffles thanks to local donations.
Shnozfest takes place on August 8 in Penfield, at Shadow Pines Golf Course. Dinner will include a steak and chicken buffet, music and prizes. Please consider supporting this important event, as it provides a monetary award to a graduating senior who is entering the field of medicine. Jonathan was on his way to becoming a doctor, and although he cannot help others, we can fulfill his dream by helping in this small way.
Vanessa, the Ozimek family and friends
