From the Founder of because I said I would, Alex Sheen:
As you undoubtedly know, the spread of the Ebola virus in West Africa has reached an unprecedented level. The outbreak has killed over 4,555 of the 9,216 that have been infected. According the United Nations, the number of infections is projected to double every month in Guinea and Sierra Leone. In Liberia, infections are projected to double every two weeks. I do not mention these statistics to spark fear or paranoia, but rather for a very different reason.
As someone who holds honor and commitment in the deepest regard, I simply do not have the words to express the level of respect I have for the dedication of the medical professionals and volunteers who are caring for the infected. This promise to care for others through risk and sacrifice defines by example the pinnacle of human greatness. The existence of these individuals instills in me a sense of hope that cannot be compared.
In honor of these medical professionals and volunteers, because I said I would has made a $5,000 donation to Doctors without Borders, a nonprofit organization providing frontline aid to Ebola patients and others around the world. We hope this funding can provide them with the equipment and supplies they need for the commitments they make. As the Founder of because I said I would, I humbly ask you to join us in our donation. We have set a goal to raise $15,000 in the next 30 days. Zero percent of the money will be given to because I said I would. This is for them. Will you help us?
