Ray's musings and humor

Ray’s Daily Special Edition

This is a first for me, in the more than 10 years I have been writing Ray’s Daily I never asked a favor of the readers, at least I don’t remember having done so. Well today I am, for some time now I have been dedicating much of my time to helping our local chapter of Oasis serve the 50 plus population. We have more than 25,000 members in Central Indiana. A staff of only 3 helped by hundreds of volunteers, some working almost full time do amazing things. There are similar chapters in other areas providing similar services.


I have found a way you can help me without even having to spend a dime. Rather than put more words into my plea I would rather you read the information below, share it, do what you can, and remember we all have the ability to make aging a pleasant endeavor and not a debilitating experience.


I will truly be grateful for your participation and for everyone who helps and they will become golden lifetime subscribers to Ray’s Daily, my lifetime that is.

The organization I support has a great opportunity to raise $500,000 in 28 days with a simple online vote … (add the link http://www.samsclub.com/givingmadesimple). If you’re a Sam’s Club Member, you can vote once a day every day starting July 5! 

OASIS is one of four non-profits in the Sam’s Club Giving Made Simple campaign.  Even if you’re not a Sam’s Member, you can still vote – on Twitter Days, July 12 and 26.  Include the Sam’s handle @samsclub and the OASIS hashtag #AdultWellness in your tweets and they count as a vote!
