A little girl with cancer
As with all things logical, we start in a place of utter despair and sadness.
There exists a little girl named Eleanor Sultan. She is five. She is also dying.
I won’t go into too many details, because there is a far better and more emotional post here over at Skeleton Jack.
Suffice to say, she has a 40% chance of survival if the planets align correctly, and Skeleton Jack is hosting quite the raffle in order to raise some cash. All the details are in the same post.
But anyway, for the gold mongers among you, this is the rundown:
Donate $10, you get a raffle ticket. Donate $50, you get six of ‘em. Donate $100, you get 14.
The award of the raffle depends on how much is donated. As of this writing, $2500 has already been donated, 10000 is currently up for grabs with the raffle, and that is only increasing.
In a classic Shakespearian move, it’s time for the comedic relief.
If you haven’t yet, WoW Relief is an awesome and extremely well done blog and you should go read it. Like right now.
Then add it to your feed burner. Or bookmark it if you’re still living in the caveman age of internet browsing.
I keed, I keed.
But seriously, the site is awesome.
The site has a month of excellent blogging under it’s belt now, I don’t expect this to change any time soon. Here’s to a year of writing, you crazy dancing pirates.
