Day 170: "Like" for a Good Cause
I am sure you have all seen those Facebook posts of people just trying to get "likes." A lot of times they consist of someone holding up a picture saying something like, "If i get 50,000 likes my parents will take me to Disney World." As I am sure most of you know, most of these are lies. I think I might have fallen for the first one I saw but I caught on fairly quick.
Well today I stumbled on a Facebook page that is looking for "likes" and is not a scam. It is in support of a little girl name Amy who is 11 and battling a brain tumor. I read more about her story and also watched a few of her interviews and I was inspired. It is always amazing to me how people can be so strong when faced with such adversity. Amy is also a big music fan and one of her wishes is to meet Taylor Swift. There was a Facebook page that was made to raise awareness of this wish and it is looking for "likes" to help get the word out. So today, for my act of kindness, I helped get the word out to raise awareness by liking Amy's page. I also purchased a song of hers for 99 cents. All proceeds go to helping Amy in her battle.
