    This article is relevant to Covid, but posting here because of this sentence, criticizing empty social media gestures.

    ......
    I guess this looks bad, but if my math is right, then 2.5 million did contribute, which is huge. The Ice Bucket Challenge raised $220 million https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice_Bucket_Challenge which is massive, about 10x OMF. We need some empty social media gestures for MECFS.



    Stop Yelling Out the Window. Just Give Doctors the Masks You’re Hoarding.
