Remember Superman Sam? Our August charity donation was made in his honor.
ThinkGeek's August $1k charity donation was made with one specific little guy in mind. Superman Sam. In July we learned of his struggle with acute myeloid leukemia and wrote a blog post asking everyone to help bolster his spirits by sending him pictures of yourself in superhero gear. Your pictures really helped. According to his mother's blog, he's doing a lot better. There are good days, and there are bad, but things are definitely looking up.
Today we donated $1k to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to help fund the research that will help kids like Sam live better, longer lives.
Cancer sucks. Every little bit we can do to help fund the research that will lead to it's eradication is worthwhile. If you're interested in donating to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, check out their donation page here. If you're interested in sending Superman Sam a heroic picture or something equally inspiring, his address is:
Sam Sommer, E582
Children's Hospital of Wisconsin
P.O. Box 1997
Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53201-1997
Thank YOU for all of your help along the way. We would never be able to donate like we do without you. So...give yourself a hug, from us. Okay?
