Phundraising Drive 2008
Due to the rising costs of medical care I need to raise $125,000 to ensure I have enough money to set aside for my health care expenses.
Your contribution would be greatly appreciated on day 1 of my phundraising drive.!
Is your nest egg big enough to cover the rising costs of health care?
...the chances of me raising even 1% of $125K is greater than winning the lottery but that's how some Oregonians are going to win big in a health insurance pool.
Oregon is conducting a one-of-a-kind lottery, and the prize is health insurance.
The state will start drawing names this week for the chance to enroll in a health care program designed for people not poor enough for Medicaid but too cash-strapped to buy their own insurance.
More than 80,000 people have signed up since registration for the lottery opened in January. Only a few thousand will be chosen for the program. Yahoo Link
It's a sad day when we have to rely on Lady Luck to provide health insurance.
