Sid Bacon's Journal
National Day of Giving
Written Dec 3, 2013 9:33amWe've survived Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and CyberMonday. Today is National Day of Giving and we'd love it if you consider a contribution to Sid's scholarship on this #GivingTuesday. Sid had many charities that were close to his heart: feeding the hungry, supporting the arts, funding educational programs for underprivileged youth. If he were here, he would certainly rather we shine the spotlight on other charitable outlets, not a scholarship with his name on it. However, a donation to Sid's scholarship today will allow the endowment to sustain a research scholarship for decades to come. A gift today will keep giving and giving.
Donations can be made online at http://asufoundation.org/sidbaconscholarship or to the ASU Foundation, Department of Speech and Hearing Science, PO Box 870102, ASU, Tempe, AZ 85287-0102.
Whether you make a donation to Sid's scholarship or choose another charitable outlet, we hope you can make the most of National Day of Giving.
Thankful for Team Bacon
Written Nov 26, 2013 8:57amAs we approach the holiday we are thankful for Team Bacon and the tremendous amount of support you have all given us. We have created a new permanent site in memory of Sid with pictures, memories shared by friends and family, many of Sid’s CaringBridge posts, and more.We also want to thank everyone for their contributions to the Sid P. Bacon Memorial Research Scholarship Endowment. We are close to reaching our goal of $25,000 by the end of the year. If Team Bacon reaches its goal we can create an endowed scholarship fund that allows a scholarship to be given each year to an undergraduate interested in research in memory of Sid. Donations can be made online at http://asufoundation.org/sidbaconscholarship or to the ASU Foundation, Department of Speech and Hearing Science, PO Box 870102, ASU, Tempe, AZ 85287-0102.We wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving and peaceful start to the holiday season.
