Listen, dear reader, I haven't asked you for money in the last 18 months so when I do, you know I'm being deadly serious. It's a rare event and I intend to keep it that way.
I'm running the 2010 British 10K London Run on 11 July 2010, and I'm trying to raise £500 (that's US$750 or EU€600) for a charity that is very close to my heart - the Albert Kennedy Trust. They are a small charity that provides supported lodgings, mentoring, information and advice for gay, lesbian and bisexual young people who are homeless, living in a hostile environment or in crisis. Whilst it is crushingly sad that such hostility exists towards gay youngsters from their own families, I find it better to acknowledge the reality of this situation and help them all I can through Albert Kennedy Trust's work.

I'm practicing hard for the run, nothing half-hearted, so please donate right now and then it's done, with my total thank you for your generosity!
