Growing up, a good friend of mine's dad suffered from Lou Gehrig's disease, also known as ALS. Just a hell of a great family. He sent me this email over the weekend.

Go here. It's a buck.
The Dollar4Life campaign is dedicated to raising $1 million from one million donors, a dollar at a time, to help find a cure for a disease that strikes people of all ages, rapidly destroying their physical functions. It kills thousands of people every year, often within a few years of diagnosis. Through Dollar4Life, everyone can make a difference by making a small donation and spreading the word. The power of 1 can be magnified a million times, with your help.

Every dollar raised through Dollar4Life will go to fund ALS research through Prize4Life, an innovative non-profit organization that is already removing the obstacles that stand in the way of a cure. Prize4Life was founded by Avi Kremer, who was only 29 years old when he was diagnosed with this fatal disease three years ago. Together with his friends and top researchers in the field, Avi created an organization that encourages scientists from all around the world to work toward a cure for ALS.

Now Prize4Life needs your help, and that of your friends and family. Please give $1 at and then spread the word about this unique campaign. Your support in spreading the word is even more valuable than your individual donation; Prize4Life aims to demonstrate how a large number of small donations can have a meaningful impact on the lives of ALS patients everywhere.
