While some of us have today off to celebrate the Labor Day holiday to honor the (poor) working stiff, a category to which most of us belong whether we want to admit it or not, others are not as fortunate, and for them it's business as usual.
But some people work the holiday weekend by choice, and one of those is comedian Jerry Lewis.

This Labor Day weekend marks the 45th anniversary of his annual telethon to raise awareness of and money to find a cure for the various physical and neurological problems that are collectively known as Muscular Dystrophy.
One would hope that by now, a cure had been found and such fund raising efforts would become obsolete. Unfortunately that is not the case. There are over 30 known varieties of this problem that the Muscular Dystrophy Association is actively researching in hopes of finding those much sought after cures, as well as assisting in the treatment of those with the illnesses.

IF you can afford to do so, please donate during the course of today's telethon.

A Public Service message of The Free Choice E-zine, who hopes all its readers have a great day, whether they have to work today or not.
