An Improbable American
My brother has inspired me to help in the best way I know how. I will be creating a few art pieces inspired by my brother and his charity and will be selling them and donating the profits to his charity, CDRS. In my mind healthcare is a right and not a priviledge, no matter where you are in the world. I will share the new pieces once they are finished. If you would like to donate to his cause, please follow the link. Here is what your money can do:

What a dynamo your brother is! I'm a fellow Marylander ... I live in St. Mary's County. You must be very proud of your brother -- the personal risk he is taking to help people in such need. Thank you for sharing his story. I'll follow your link on how to make a donation.
Thanks for taking the time to read the article and watch the video and sharing it with your friends!
Thanks so much Barbara for making a donation! It makes me feel good to think that I can help him and his hospital in some small way, even if it's just getting the word out! You rock!
Will be off to read about your brother in a sec. Glad to hear your hubby is better. Scary!
