Dare Me 4 Charity has changed the Minneapolis competition from July 12 to July 29th. They targeted 42 cities and got 32 cities across the United States to participate. Scheduling became a nightmare for them. They have 24,000 charities signed up with over 2,000 teams.

The Jump Challenge is to jump off a platform raised as high as 40 ft. to raise money for a charity. The total footage that has been jumped by the entire team will be added together and counted on the overall Leader Board. The top 3 teams with the most total feet jumped showing on the Leader Board at the end of the tour, will win the $50,00 cash prize. There is over a million dollars in prizes. Large prizes will be awarded at a Dare Me celebrity event in Los Angeles. The other checks will have check presentations and the cities in which they participated.

This event may affect the Guinness World Records and will be filmed.

The event will be shown on local TV.

Their goal was to raise money for charity, make it fun, make it a worthy cause, raise awareness, and to make history.

There will be pilot episodes of Dare Me for Chairty tht will air on the same day as the 24 hour challenge. The airdate for each city has not been firmed up.

There are also additional prizes for the most donations, the most votes over a 24 hour period.

Bring people to the cities with you. Spectators are free. The bigger the party, the better.

Interviews will be on TV. Charities have been sent questionnaires.

You can wear costumes if you want or themed shirts. It is anything you want to do.Yes, wouldn’t it be funny to do that.

Actually across the United States some people are skydiving into the event, shaving off their heads, getting tattoos, switching clothes with a total stranger, and much more. For example there are themed stunts like Wearing Red Sox in Boston, Wearing Cowboy Colors in Dallas, Wearing Alien Masks in Houston, Coffee in Seattle, etc. Some want to be the flying pink tutu’s.  They would like to know your ideas ahead of time.

People coming together for the common good.

Extra Help With Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Costs

Posted by peggysue on June 26, 2014 in Admirable, Courage, Food, Healthy Choices, Hope, Little Piggies, Passion and Joy with Comments closed |

 

I was checking around today and yesterday see what the Doughnut Hole was in prescription coverage. I don’t know how many calls I made, and I am worn out from it all. It is not the doughnuts that you eat either.

Individuals whose total drug costs exceed $2,850.00 in 2014 fall into the doughnut hole. Oophs that’s me for the first time in 11 years. That is because I changed my insurance last year to a policy that was $100.00 cheaper. I didn’t know about gap in the policy.

While you are in the gap, in 2014 you pay 47.50 percent of the cost of brand name drugs and 72 percent of generic drugs.  If that doesn’t suck, I don’t know what does.

Once you meet $4,550.00 in 2014, you can get out of the doughnut hole.  Where does that money come from? Your co-pays and some prescription credits. That is why people people are finding prescriptions  un-affordable.

It is the type of insurance some of we may have as a retiree.

I know that Jan. 2015 I am going to have to pay more to have coverage that includes the gap. I have to re-apply in November of 2014.

I will end up paying maybe $600-$1000.00 more per month on prescriptions out of pocket. Who would of thought that a little word like gap  could matter?

In my Insurance 101 self learning class,  I found out that those folks with incomes $26,860.00 for a family of two or a spouse with $13,440.00 can qualify for extra help with their medicare prescription drug plan cost. Just go to the Social Security website and find it there. I highlighted it in black what you should look for. If you have any questions call the social security help line at 1.800.722.1213.

What have I learned? You should either have a little income or lots of income. Those in the middle don’t qualify for a lot of stuff. Stay strong, hold down the fort for everyone. Be sure to make sure all your drugs are generic before this happens. Eat healthy, exercise and only take the pills you have to take.

I still think it is very important to have supplemental health insurance and  gap coverage. Pay for it or it will kick you back in the shins.

Jeff Foster Trucking Is Doing It’s Part in Raising Awareness of MS

Posted by peggysue on June 22, 2014 in Admirable, Courage, Food, Healthy Choices, Passion and Joy, Selfless People with Comments closed |

Jeff Foster Trucking has three trucks that promote awareness. One is the MS Awareness Truck.

What is the incident of MS? 

-It often occurs between ages 15-50.

-More women get MS than men.

-If you live farther away from the equator you are at highest risk.

-Caucasians have a higher risk.

-African Americans have more problems with vision and mobility.

-If a family member has MS-then there is an increased suspectibility.

-Smoking increases risk.

-Vitamin D deficiency may increase risk.

-Individuals with parasites have a lower risk.

What is MS?

It is  disease of the central nervous system. It is damaged myelin, and common symptoms include areas of inflammation. There is also damage to the brain or spinal cord. These are called lesions or plaque.

What are common symptoms?

Fatigue, numbness, visual distrubances, mlbility issues, bladder problems and more.

What are the types?

There are different types.

What causes MS?

Possible causes could include genetic  causes, the Epstin Barr Virus, your intake of fat and omega 3 fatty acids,  your vitman D level, smoking, the amout of parsites in your body, and blood flow issues. Still there is a lot of research that needs to be completed. The DoD program in Washing DC is doing some major research. Dod stands for the Department of Defense.

(Thoughts: I have also read whereas diet and environmental factors play a role in this disease. I would think these patients would not be able to go on statins due to muscle weakness.)
