Om Malik Says “Help Yourself & Help UCSF Foundation”

21 Dec

Blogger Om Malik just notified me that he posted the following message on his Facebook profile this morning. Om is helping advocate UCSF among his readers and web industry colleagues.

This is for all my peeps who work too hard, stay up long hours, drink too much coffee and hit in-and-Out too often. From my own personal experience I know people don't really spend much time thinking about the long term impact of such busy lifestyle. It causes problems that we don't even know we have. Such as heart and vascular diseases.

My friends at UCSF have put together a simple Prevention Tips Page. Take a moment to check it out and see if you need to visit the doctor. Prevention, is much better than the cure.

Given the fact that UCSF folks saved me from near disaster last year, they are my favorite charity. I am trying to help them raise some cash for their various heart-disease related efforts. If you would like to help, then send them a check — however small (or big) — you can afford.

1. Make checks out to "UCSF Foundation"

2. Please write in the notes area of check "OM/Cardiovascular Research Initiative"
3. Mail Checks To: UCSF Foundation, UCSF Box 0248, San Francisco, CA 94143-0248.

Thanks, Om!
