The Fine Print:
This is something I don't do everyday. I'm gonna give you at least 25 amazing photos of yourself - completely retouched, ultra-hi-res digital photos. A package like this normally costs $200 - $500.
So, what's the catch?
My friend Nadia was diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS) in 2010 while we were in pharmacy school together at Rutgers.
So what the fuck is Ehlers Danlos Syndrome?
It's a disease that causes chronic pain and difficulty moving around, and it causes your organs and shit to get effed up. Worse, there's no treatment or cure for EDS. And, worst of all, it shortens lifespan to only about 40 years old, max.
But, instead of bitching and moaning about it, Nadia decided to take her proverbial lemons and squeeze some fucking proverbial lemonade from them, and she started a non-profit (EDSers United Foundation) to raise awareness about her disease and to find a cure for her disease. Word got out about the work that Nadia was doing, and some investors from pharma companies started getting interested.
Here's the exciting part.
We have investors from the boards of several pharma companies which are considering making a multi-million-dollar investment in a project we're working on.
The project is to build a lab and world-class clinic to develop a cure for EDS. Since these investors are on the fence about providing this funding, they signed a contract with us, saying if we are able to get 1000 individuals to pledge $10 and sign this petition for funding by 4/1 (proving that there is enough true demand to justify this funding), they will collectively donate $15 million to our cause over the next 3 years.
If you click here and hit "Sign Now" it takes you right to the petition website (which also shows exactly how many more signatures we need). Right now, we still need about 730 signatures (with accompanying $10 pledge).
The clock is ticking. We only have about 6 days left to get these 730 signatures.
We need all the help we can get. Please tell your friends, your family, your brother-in-law, your brother-in-law's half-brother's hair stylist's niece, etc.
Help us make a difference for Nadia and the millions of people who suffer from EDS.
