Look Presidential

One of the more interesting messages I have received. Asked about those yellow bands being worn by both President Bush and Senator Kerry. What, he asked, is that about? Some secret society, some private identification, some obscure conspiracy?

Actually, the yellow bands worn by both the President and Mr. Kerry are for a worthy cause both men support. The yellow bands are from the Lance Armstrong Foundation, a foundation Lance created to help cancer survivors and their families. The yellow bands are called “Livestrong” bands, and donors to the Foundation wear the bands as signs of their support and to spread the word about cancer research.

One thing, besides wearing the bands, that speaks well for both men, is that neither has ever brought up the bands or tried to use the Foundation for political gain.

Bands may be bought in lots of 10, 100, or 1000, at only a $1 a wristband. Because of strong interest, it takes 3 to 4 weeks for delivery, but the cause is the thing.

Be Presidential; donate to the Lance Armstrong Foundation!
