Thank You Market Leverage and Affiliate Summit

As some of you know Market Leverage had a Charity Bowl-a-Thon on Tuesday, March 31st to raise money for the Neimann-Pick Children’s Fund.

To help with raise money they decide to sell raffle tickets for a dollar a piece. I decide to donate and I was lucky enough to win a free Gold Pass to Affiliate Summit in New York in August.

So far these past 30 days have been I’ve been winning tons of stuff. Maybe I need to go by a lottery ticket….

I want to thank Dina Riccobono from Market Leverage for drawing my winning ticket, Missy Ward and Shawn Collins from Affiliate Summit for donating the prize.

But the real winner here is the Neimann-Pick Children’s Fund; in total the event raised around $4,000.00.

So what is Niemann-Pick Disease Type C?

Niemann-Pick Disease Type C (NP-C) is a genetic pediatric neurodegenerative disorder causing progressive deterioration of the nervous system. It usually starts to affect children of school age (4-7 years old) by interfering with their ability to metabolize cholesterol. Consequently, large amounts of cholesterol accumulate within the liver, spleen, and brain. This metabolic disorder leads to a series of neurological problems that are ultimately fatal. NP-C is estimated to be 1 in 150,000 people worldwide, with only a couple hundred cases diagnosed in the world! NP-C is considered a Lysosomal Storage Disorder (Gaucher’s Disease is the most prevalent.)

It’s never too late to help out, you can go to here and donate to the fund, and you can even use your PayPal Account.

Niemann-Pick Children’s Fund, Inc is a Missouri Non-Profit Corporation (501(c)3 status pending) directed by the Stults Family and its board members.

Why another blog about forums? Great question, we are just a couple of forum owners who have built ours forums from the ground-up. We just wanted a blog for real life forum owners, with real life experiences.
