Fan Friends for BSB presents:

Gift Boxes for the DLF Support Group for the Holidays!

Hello everyone!

Just when you thought you couldn't get enough, we are back again! Kinda like Backstreet themselves! We are on to our next Christmas project and are looking for people who may want to contribute. We are putting together "Shoeboxes for Lupus". And just what is a "Shoebox for Lupus"?

Well, you find a shoe box, and you put all kinds of things in it that would make life a little more enjoyable and comfy for someone who may be suffering. Like some nice shower gel, or a Hershey's chocolate bar, or maybe a nice pair of thick, comfy socks. Use your imagination....if someone gave you a box, what would you like to find in it? (We have a little list below if you need some ideas) You will have to mark on the outside of the box somewhere if it is for a man, woman, or younger person. We are not asking that you go into debt with your box, just do what you can.

The boxes are to be sent to The Dorough Lupus Foundation and they will be distributed to lupus patients through the Dorough Lupus Foundation Support Group, which is a support group for teens living with lupus.

You will need to include our little letter from Fanfriends, so when your box is ready to go, please email one of us on the committee so we can send you the letter.

You will have to print it out and put it in your box, and you will also have to be willing to pay the postage to mail your box.

On the outside, just put:

"Shoeboxes for Lupus"

vG1OIv Is anybody strong in radio here? We need a colleague who would tell us briefly about the transistor T2. I hope there are radio amateurs here. If it`s not on the subject at all, then I`m sorry. I have to write because I have no choice. PS: if the spelling is not right then also I'm sorry, I'm just 13 years old!...
