Amazon Supports ALS

Click here to support ALS at www.smile.amazon.com.

Just go to www.smile.amazon.com and make ALS of Michigan (38-2190726) your charity of choice. Then every time you make a purchase Amazon will donate a small percentage to us. It doesn't cost you a penny and it doesn't change the price of your purchase. But, all those "small" percentages add up to big money.
