From Reddit to Disneyland

From Reddit to Disneyland
Posted May 7th, 2013 @ 9:06am

Behold the power of the internet...after posting a story onto Reddit, Alex Sheen was contacted by Steve Harvey, about a promise he made to send 20 kids with cancer to Disneyland. With the help of the popular website, the two were able to raise enough money for 100 Disneyland tickets to fund "because I said I would," a non-profit organization.


Millions of people across the world have heard about "because I said I would" because of Reddit. Sheen sends 10 promise cards, at no cost, to anyone who requests them.


This is the story of a woman named Shawnta told me that her brother was diabetic and had complete renal failure... "The last time he was admitted my father and I rushed him to the hospital and on the way there he cried out and said "I'm tired of this (being sick) I can't do this anymore." those words hurt me to the core and I cried out "Don't worry I will give u a kidney, just hang on." Shawnta donated her kidney on March 29th, 2013.
