The Selfless


A plea from the Founder of Because I said I would...

As you undoubtedly know, the spread of the Ebola virus in West Africa has reached an unprecedented level. The outbreak has killed 4,555 of the 9,216 that have been infected. According to 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 of others through risk and personal sacrifice defines by example a pinnacle of human greatness. In this battle, the shield is stronger than a thousand swords… but who is willing to die to hold this shield? Only the bravest. Only the selfless. 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 unrestricted funding provides them with the equipment and supplies needed in their commitment. 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 these funds will be given to because I said I would. This is all for them. Over 240 medical professionals have already died to save the innocent from this disease. Will you join us in honoring their sacrifice?
