Last night, a staff member at Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada made posted to this link on Reddit.com. In less than 6 hours the post made it to the #1 spot on the entire site. It received over 650,000 page views in less than a day. This resulted in so much traffic to https://becauseisaidiwould.org that the site crashed. I received over 1,000 messages before I went to sleep last night 🙂 I went to work today and phone calls started coming in from TV shows around the country. I have no idea how they got my phone number, lol. It has been a crazy day.To learn more about this project, check out these links:
