Got Mold? President Giving Back to Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
On January 6, 2011, Got Mold? decided to give back to our community. We are particularly concerned about Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and launched our facebook fan page giving $1 for every LIKE. On January 15th of that year, we wrote a check for $1,500 because we got 1500 LIKES in a span of nine days.
This year, Got Mold? wants to support this worthy cause again. As stated by our founder, James C. Watson:
“In January of 2011 one of my friends who I grew up with, Michelle Walker-Langford, began raising awareness for DMD; I was curious to know what DMD was so I asked Michelle and also began my own research. I learned that this was horrible muscle degenerating disease that affects young boys, crippling them at a very young age and putting them in wheel chairs. At an early age it would start to attack their vital organs and soon kill them by affecting their lungs and/or heart. The saddest thing I learned, the more they used their muscles the more they deteriorated.
I then received an e-mail from Michelle stating that her son, Owen, has DMD and I realized that I had to do something to help. In January of 2011, Charles Dumont, our former Marketing Directer, and I started a campaign and donated $1 per LIKE on our facebook fan pages. Now that our fan base has grown substantially and so has the DMD community we have scaled down to 50 cents per LIKE and this time I want to personally donate the money. My goal is to donate $5,000″
Starting this week, our founder, Watson, will personally donate $0.50 per new LIKE we receive on our fan pages. We encourage you to visit our fan pages and give us a LIKE so that we can donate as much as we can to this worthy cause.
Here are the particulars of the DMD event we are planning to support:
Hinton Safeway Walk for Muscular Dystrophy and Firefighter Car Wash
