Default Young guy needs help!

A skeptic needs our help | Bad Astronomy | Discover Magazine

Found at skepchick.org:

In March 2008, I posted about Michael Strieb, a fellow skeptic who posted under the moniker NobbyNobbs, and his diagnosis of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS, or Lou Gehrigs Disease). Back then, he had just been diagnosed. By the time he arrived at the Skepchick party at TAM 7 in Vegas last year, he was confined to a wheelchair and used a computer to do most of his communicating.

Now hes no longer able to speak or type. Hes an incredibly intelligent and kind person, and the world is better off when he can communicate. Now you can help him!

For $3,200 he can afford an eye gaze system to communicate with his family and friends. Other skeptics are fundraising to help him out. We can totally hit that, seeing as about 10,000 of you are reading this right now. Send a few dollars their way and feel good about greatly improving the life of a fellow rational human.
