Its that time of year again...
Just kidding ;)
In case you missed it on Twitter, I just donated $250 to this year's Lupus Walk, through a friend of mine. I challenge each and every one of you to make a contribution too. It doesn't have to be much, just something.
You can donate here.
A few years ago, I wrote a post and spammed it over a bunch of relevant communities, and its just as true now, Get your pink ribbon out of my goddamn face.
The most relevant part: ...more people have Lupus than </b>AIDS, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, sickle-cell anemia and cystic fibrosis... COMBINED</b>. Between 1.5-2 million people in the US alone. That's roughly 10 TIMES as many as there are Breast Cancer patients.
Its even more true now, as more companies release pink versions of their products, and girls are wearing "Great tits are worth keeping" shirts around campus.
