Blast Away Neuroblastoma

THE STORY:

I love watching society rally together for a common cause. The feeling of unity can be so powerful! This morning, Rob Thomas, the creator of Veronica Mars, started a Kickstarter campaign and told the fans that if they raised $2 million, they would make a Veronica Mars movie. With the help of social media, $2 million was raised. In a record 11 hours. For a Veronica Mars movie.
Now don’t get me wrong, that’s impressive. It’s impressive that that much money could be raised in such a short amount of time. Some quick math for you: that’s $181,818 an hour, or roughly $3000 per minute.
What if we, as a society, had that much passion and fire towards another cause? Can you imagine the good that could be done? We tend to spend our money on what we value or what we believe to be important. So what is this saying about our society? That we value entertainment over basic human needs? Why can’t we rally this same way, and with this same amount of passion and excitement, for other causes that benefit more people?
There are children all over the world suffering from Neuroblastoma, a type of pediatric cancer. This malignancy occurs in about 1 in every 100,000 children and is devastating to families.
I've seen the personal effects of this terrible disease, and I want a cure. Please give what you can, so we can help these children have a fighting chance at life.
