“Just so everyone is aware, there is a bunch of misleading info being spread around re: ALS research - the “27%” figure is based on previous years’ annual funding; furthermore, the remainder goes to improving the quality of life of those suffering from ALS. Given that the annual funding is approximately 16M, that’s just over 4M spent on decreasing their suffering. It isn’t greed, it’s a lack of money.”
Shut up already.
And the next time you start to complain about a charity either a) working on multiple fronts (because that’s what ALSA does—both seeking a cure and helping people suffering now) or b) daring to have administration expenses—let’s see how long you can last, much less tackle a cause, without printer paper and an internet connection.
As someone who has watched a family member die from a neuro-degenerative disease; funding to develop better wheelchairs and bedsore creams is *just* as important as funding research to cure the disease itself…
A friend of mine posted an update from one of HER friends to FB earlier. Her dad has ALS. The ALS foundation came out to see if they could put in a ramp for his wheelchair, but they couldn’t afford it because of the kind of ramp he needed for the kind of house they had.
This week they called back and said hey, the thing is, we suddenly have a bunch of money, so we’re coming out to build that ramp. And they did. She posted pics.
So if you feel like complaining about the ice bucket challenge…reconsider.
if you’re entirely cool with rp partners not matching length on replies, clap your hands

"AriAriAriAriAriAri! Sure, why not," she chuckled.
Ari laughed. “D’ya know how to use those or do you need me to show you the basics?”
"Uhh, I think I got it," she chuckled and flapped her wings awkwardly.
"Here, just copy me." She beat her wings a few times to get moving before extending them and just gliding.
Lux followed suit, catching on.
"Good! Now turn by doing this." She moved her wings a little so she turned right.
