Un Cachito de la vida - A little piece of Cameron's life

MS, or Multiple Sclerosis is a disease that I happen to have some feelings about. For those not familiar with it, it is a debilitating, degenerative disease for which there is no cure. I got an bulk email today from the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, and I while I at first thought it was an email asking for money, it turns out it's just looking for people to sign a petition to try to get more federal funding from this disease. As this is (with current knowlegde) a non-preventable disease that afflicts many, I think it is worthy of government funding and would encourage people to sign the petition. Since I'm opposed to sending out bulk email, I've taken the liberty to turn the email into a web page you can access the email and link to the petition here.Also, I'll add that I've found it important to filter good charities from not-as-good charities so that my money is going to help victims and not spam people. A great site to check for this is Charity Navigator. The NMSS of Utah gets a commendable 4 stars.

Thanks - it works now.

I wonder if you were going first to the archive page and then viewing it because it worked for me. However, I've made the link absolute so hopefully it works now.

Yup. I followed the link from bloglines, which takes you directly to the archive page, so the relative link was looking in the archives directory.

Go ahead and sign it. I see no requirement of citizenship.
