Just a dollar a day

I've been back in Nebraska for two days now, and in that time I've seen about 200 commercials asking for money for African orphans and animal shelters.  But I'd like to see this commercial.
Thousands of middle-aged men and women in America suffer from ancient, lame-ass computers every day.  They have loud, ear-shattering fans, and they may have single-core Pentium processors that can barely even browse Facebook.  But it doesn't have to be that way.  For your gift of just a dollar a day, your parents could get a new computer that's still crappy, but not as crappy as their decade-old one.  At least it would be running Windows 7.  With your donation we'll send you monthly updates on which chain emails they've forwarded, how out-of-date their Flash plugin is, and even how many new browser toolbars and pieces of spyware they've installed.  You can make a real difference in your loved ones' lives, for far less than the cost of a daily cup of coffee.  Please call now.
