This morning I was surprised to find a request from Martin Sojka to be my friend on Facebook, the social networking site. I joined Facebook just a few weeks ago to see what it was all about. I really have had little personal contact with Martin, except for a few shared emails back when he was starting Lumberjocks and I was developing a new woodworking blog for August Home Publishing, the company I work for as an associate editor, and the publisher of Woodsmith magazine, among others.

If you know anything about my blog, it’s probably because we host our seminar podcasts there. At one time, three to four editors were actively posting to the blog about their woodworking experiences, but lately, the only posts have been those monthly podcasts.

Anyway, back to the point of this post. In a couple of weeks, several friends and I will be walking to raise some money for a very special cause—the Walk to Defeat ALS. Also known as Lou Gehrigs Disease, ALS has has hit my family hard. A year ago last January, my wife Lisa was diagnosed with ALS. Since then, it’s been hard to focus on anything but this terrible disease. Lisa is doing well. Although she is confined to a wheelchair, somehow she manages to keep a positive attitude and her strength and courage have been an incredible inspiration to me. That is why I decided to use this forum to ask for your help to defeat this disease and to help raise funds to provide local patient services. You can donate to the National ALS Association, to your local chapter, or sign on as a member of Lisa's Angels, our group of family and friends that will be walking on Oct 4th here in Des Moines.

If every LumberJock decided to donate just $10 to this cause, it would be an incredible success story. And, needless to say, I would be very pleased and proud that I made a friend like Martin Sojka, the founder of LumberJocks.
