________________________________ From: Gordon Gund, Chairman, Foundation Fighting Blindness [mailto:info@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Thursday, May 21, 2009 1:30 PM To: acorange@xxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Did you hear the news? Foundation Fighting Blindness: From the Office of Gordon Gund <http://www.fightblindness.org/site/R?i=OQfusNaI9CyoCsQVg8VBnQ..> Dear Chip, You are an important member of the community fighting blindness here at the Foundation. And I have some exciting news for you: For EVERY dollar you contribute to the Foundation Fighting Blindness during May, my wife Lulie and I will personally give an additional two dollars tripling the impact of your donation. <http://www.fightblindness.org/site/R?i=tHclKzPA8hUBJj_hJhuILQ..> Why am I doing this? Because I've never felt more optimistic about our chances of success than I do right now. Researchers heading up the groundbreaking FFB-funded gene therapy trial tell us that many patients are showing significant increases in light perception and visual clarity. To move this study and other promising research forward, I need every member of our community to step forward. And, thanks to the matching gift, there's never been a better time to do so. Right now...your $10 becomes $30. Your $25 allows the Foundation to invest $75 in cutting-edge research. I urge you to make a generous gift to FFB today and let me triple the impact of every dollar you give. <http://www.fightblindness.org/site/R?i=yrjLAuZ2BeNWjRHapv8Shg..> Triple the impact of your donation today! The Foundation Fighting Blindness will receive a total of $3 for every dollar you donate in May. Just 10 days left to make your May pledge. Please be generous. Donate <http://www.fightblindness.org/site/R?i=tGIb4pA89G4PDDfCEB-jHg..> And there's one more reason I hope you'll decide to join me in this important campaign. You see, I've lived with the loss of sight from retinitis pigmentosa since 1970. And like millions of other Americans -- I have a very personal stake in our quest for treatments and cures. Your gift today offers hope to every man, woman and child living with sight loss. And there are only 10 days left to get your May gift matched. So, Please do not delay in making the most of my special offer with a gift of $10 or more today. <http://www.fightblindness.org/site/R?i=lWeyHmJirpi51qXav2Irrw..> And thank you, as always, for your dedication to fighting blindness. Sincerely, Gordon Gund Signature <http://www.fightblindness.org/images/content/pagebuilder/20921.jpg> Gordon Gund Chairman <http://www.fightblindness.org/site/PixelServer?j=CfRvBxST79-pn-kXiuW24g..> Check us out on: facebook <http://www.fightblindness.org/site/R?i=iqNWc1zk_z1JxdOr_gvD1w..> twitter <http://www.fightblindness.org/site/R?i=wooJDIu0Z1MlQvrNVT3hvw..> MySpace <http://www.fightblindness.org/site/R?i=9zs0GfYzIsIj73QSdyBRUg..> YouTube <http://www.fightblindness.org/site/R?i=KsZgwm8hGJeb8RYIfdNlpA..> Tell a Friend <http://www.fightblindness.org/site/R?i=ujvdyyjKxfh7sqQFSPmBsw..> | Subscribe <http://www.fightblindness.org/site/R?i=hQm2ZyyODXIhrQKEjWYW1A..> | Change email address <http://www.fightblindness.org/site/R?i=y9I0NdqfwGGDdJDDqrkViA..> | Unsubscribe <http://www.fightblindness.org/site/CO?i=0InT3XVBo8cop0tI7KiF4soPVh_p--W6&ci d=1141> Foundation Fighting Blindness www.FightBlindness.org <http://www.fightblindness.org/site/R?i=-RyslHeTzLKmq4Vl-XiJBQ..> 11435 Cronhill Drive Owings Mills, MD 21117 1-800-683-5555 Powered by Convio. <http://www.fightblindness.org/site/R?i=p6acQqCVlEgrpaoafwhg1Q..> Check out the TABI resource web page at http://acorange.home.comcast.net/TABI to unsubscribe send a message, containing a subject line of the word unsubscribe, to tabi-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx if you'd like to unsubscribe you can do so through the freelists.org web interface, or by sending an email to the address tabi-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with the word "unsubscribe" in the subject.
