Right. The better question is who doesn’t want a personal message from Derek Jeter? No one. We love our captain, so why not spend $299 to have him record a special message just for us? Here’s how…
There are just a few days left for everybody to donate and receive a customized audio message from Jeet (as well as from celebrities like Will Ferrell, Tom Hanks, Betty White, William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, Patrick Stewart, Ed Asner and Carrie Fisher – Morgan Freeman is already sold out) – all to benefit the national advocacy organization Autism Speaks.
I love this fundraising idea, and Autism Speaks is such a worthy organization. In my new caregiving book, YOU’D BETTER NOT DIE OR I’LL KILL YOU, one of the other caregivers is filmmaker Yudi Bennett whose son Noah is autistic. Her story alone is worth the price of admission, so I feel especially impassioned on her behalf.
And think about all the things you’d like Jeter to say to you. He could:
- Explain that “fat” picture and assure you he really hasn’t gained any weight.
- Tell you whether he and Minka are over for good.
- Share what he thinks of A-Rod’s latest hip adventure.
- Give you an assessment of Yankees 2013.
Now back to the Hot Stove….
