I usually don't do non-art related posts... but here's my meager contribution to helping out an old colleague and his fiancee.
One minute, one dollar, pass it on.
You can make a REAL difference with very LITTLE money and very LITTLE time. We're asking for two things: give $1 and pass this email to people you know. We're trying to raise $1,000,000 in 3 months to enable human therapeutic trials to fight HIBM, a debilitating disease. We're asking for two things:
First, go to WEBSITE (www.hibm.org) to donate $1. Second, send this email on to all your friends and family.
In the Internet age, reaching one million people in that amount of time is surely do-able. If you are interested in becoming a bigger influence in this campaign, host your own dollar collecting campaign in your community, church, workplace, among your friends and family and donate what you've collected as one donation.
HIBM (Hereditary Inclusion Body ) is a progressive and debilitating muscle-wasting disorder caused by a gene defect. It touches those between the ages of 20 and 40 and, although progression is slow, it typically leads to total disability within 10-15 years. Studies suggest that HIBM may be easier to cure than many other disorders or diseases, the only limiting factor is funds.
Many thanks for the read... new art coming soon!
