I came across this post at Cheryl's blog (aka Mad Baggage). It refers to the netexperiment. What's it about? Allison was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2000 and is trying a 'net experiment to raise $1 million for MS research. This means that if 1 million people give $1, she'll have made her target.
The chances are you may well know someone with MS, so you might just want to help.
If you're interested, you can read Allison's blog here.
And so, you may be wondering, what, aside from doing a good deed is in it for you... Well, here's the answer:
The NetXperiment allows you to donate as little as a dollar and get a link from a PR3 web site. Great deal really, very white hat, and is a win-win for you and for Foundation 5 Million (People with MS raising money for MS, and what my charity site donates too).You can read more about it here.
Those that have the deepest pockets, the most inventive ways to get money in here, and the businesses that are gagging to be part of this internet phenomena, will win. For they will have bigger displays in the Contributor Cloud than those that do not.
The person/group/business who contributes the amount that takes us over the million dollar finish line will also be a winner as they will be included in a vast amount of internet and global publicity.
Of course the beneficiaries of the money will be winners too, but this is not about them, this is about us netizens making it happen.
