help a penguin out

When we went to the Aquarium, the waterfowl keepers told the kids that they were "penguin heroes" if they turned off the water when they brushed their teeth.
I still don't see the correlation.

However, I am offering you all a chance to be penguin heroes, regardless of your dental hygiene habits:

Sam's (a.k.a. the arizona penguin) has only met 12% of her Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Run funds!

Here's a breakdown of how your donation helps *real* people that need help.

A donation of $25 provides patients and their loved ones with FREE booklets that contain up-to-date information on their disease and help them make informed decisions about their treatment options.
• A donation of $50 makes possible a Family Support group with a trained facilitator where comfort can be found and experiences can be shared among patients and family members.
• A donation of $100 helps supply laboratory researchers with supplies and materials critical to carrying out their search for cures.
• A donation of $1,000 makes possible one- on-one conversations with health care specialists who provide patients with information about their disease, treatment options, and helps prepare them with questions for their health care team.
• A donation of $5,000 is transportation for 13 out-of-state bone marrow donors.
