A cause worth supporting

I've just received the following e-mail from a friend in the UK. I can't support the charity from here but perhaps some of you guys can.

Dear All

I'm going to be taking part in a charity bike ride on 30th March to raise funds for
Mute Tourette's Syndrome. I never tap anyone for sponsorship money but a friend has
a 7yr old son that suffers from this and we are raising funds to pay for a year's
therapy. Mute Tourette's Syndrome has long been in the shadow of its more famous
sister-disease, Tourette's Syndrome, and although much rarer is even more tragic in
its consequences. While a child suffering from Tourette's has difficulty containing
his or her anger and frustration, a child with Mute Tourette's suffers a worse fate,
and is unable to express their true feelings.

The Mute Tourette's Foundation is using radical new art therapy techniques to help
combat the frustration and loneliness of Mute Tourette's. However, their work can
only continue with our help: just £10 a day enables therapy for a morning to allow
parents time away from this debilitating illness. Attached is a picture to
demonstrate how the donations received so far have been put to good use.

Many Thanks in advance.

I thought that having more patience was a result of my getting older. Turns out that I just don't give a sh*t.
