 Requesting help from the DDS community

I'd like to ask a favor of my colleagues in the dental profession.
This note came across my desk the other day...

Craig Sherford is a seven year old suffering from terminal cancer.
It is his wish to be included in the Guinness Book of World Records
for the most business cards ever collected by one person.
Craig would be grateful if you would send one of your business cards
to the address below. Obviously, speed is important. If you could, please
copy this message to as many of your friends as possible, and if you
can think of another newsgroup to post, please help out and do so.
I know we're all busy, but this will only take a couple of minutes
and a stamp.

Craig's address:

Craig Sherford
Children's Make a Wish Foundation
82 Perimeter Center East
Atlanta, GA 40435

Thanks everybody.

Michael Hage, DDS, MS

I seem to remember something similar about Christmas cards, and it was either
a spoof or the family were seriously inconvenienced by all these christmas
cards arriving or something.  Does anyone remember?

I decided to help you out by forwarding the following:

T.*Craig Shergold, UK cancer kid,sought get-well cards,overwhelmed with
   33 mil.
T.*Craig Shergold, UK health plan wouldn't operate;Kluge paid;tumor was
   benign!
T.*Lousy quality CS GIF courtesy of Phil Kernick available via anonymous ftp.
T. Craig Shergold's 13th birthday was June 24, 1992.From now June 24 is
   AFUday.
T. His name has been misspelled several times in various pleas.
T. But he sure as heck doesn't want or need any more cards now.
T.*See _The Guinness Book of Records 1992_, p. 207.4 for his listing.
T.*See 19 July 1990 _NY Times_ (p. 24), _People_ magazine 10 June 1991,
   p. 63.
T.*Check the afu anonymous ftp site for sources and references.
T.*Cards that are sent to the hospital no longer go to him.
T. A variation of the above now includes a call for business cards.
   [Classic American UL in this genre is "Postcards for Little Buddy" in CBA]
T. There was a version involving bar codes which was a hoax.

Stop! Before it's too late you should subscribe to AFU
(alt.folklore.urban) and read the FAQ. If the regulars there read your
post you will get flamed out of existence.

You can find the FAQ at alt.answers and via FTP at rtfm.mit.edu.

Good luck!
