Many of you know the group Unite2FightParalysis (www.U2FP.org) and the wonderful yearly conference they put on called Working2Walk (www.W2W.org).
There are many like myself who would love to attend and hear the exciting presentations made by scientists and activists in the fight to cure paralysis. Well, flying from Japan, booking a hotel, and all the costs associated with out country, or even out of city travel, doesn't fit into my budget.
But does U2FP leave me or you out just because we can't afford the time or money? No, they make sure that the presentation are available to ALL of us for free on the internet.
Click here to watch the videos.
You'll be asked to log into your account and you'll get a password for the videos.
If you don't have an account, you can log in through your facebook or twitter account, or create a new login. Whichever way you do it, you'll get a password which you can use.
Although they make it free to watch, it's not free for U2FP. I have learned that making the videos available to us for free costs them about $5000 for the videographer and then many many hours in volunteer time to get them ready for the final upload and editing.
So I'd like to make all the video presentation viewers out there a simple, cheap challenge.
From now on, every time I watch a 2013 video (the first time) I'm going to donate five bucks, and I want you to do the same.
There is a donate link on all the videos which you can access after registering to view (registering doesn't oblige you to donate).
You can support U2FP and their work to find a cure for spinal cord injury for as little as $5, and supporting cure is a lot better than any of the other things you can buy for a fiver.
Of course, if you think that $5 at a time is a pain, please feel free just to make a larger, one off donation.
Hope you take the challenge!
