R2DT and R2E2 host the Second Annual Geleophysic Dysplasia Webathon

R2DT pictured here with R2E2 and R2C2, now get charitable, y’all!

Operative R2DT writes in from the Outer Rim Territories regarding his niece, R2E2’s ongoing efforts to raise money and awareness for a rare illness that took the life of her younger sister, R2C2 called Geleophysic Dysplasia:

Dear Dr. J. 

Just an update … 

Niece R2E2 continues her American Heart Association fund raising efforts, even after a move from TX to OK. 

In 2011 she raised $5,700. 

In 2012 she raised $11,000. 

This year, her goal is not monetary. She’s trying to get 1,000 supporters. I don’t know if I’m more proud of her for the success she’s had or because she’s setting ambitious goals and working hard toward them. 

If you could send out a supportive tweet or blog post, we would very much appreciate it.

Dear R2DT,

Thanks for the update, Dr. J. couldn’t be more proud to see a young lady work hard with a purpose. This bodes well for her future. Dr. J. also thinks that it is smart to concentrate on increasing awareness and grow her support base, rather than focus on a dollar value. If more people give a little bit, the result is both a more stable and eventually larger, charitable donation source.

About Dr. J.

Dr. J. was born the son of a New Atlantean sharecropper who cornered the market on notoriously delicious seaweed Himanthalia elongata (popularly known as Thongweed). With his newly minted seaweed fortune, Mr. J. the Elder sent his son to attend the Academy of Sorcery, Alchemy and Surgery where the good doctor apprenticed with the finest sorcerer surgeons in New Atlantis. Dr. J.'s areas of expertise grew to include bleeding, cutting for stone, trephination, medical divination with outstanding spatial and temporal resolution, cybernetic sorcery and medicinal alchemy. When King Orin of Atlantis fell ill with the Ick, Dr. J. stepped in with an elixir he devised from a combination of minerals, herbs and saps. Curing the king, Dr. J. gained significant notoriety which afforded him the luxury of time to devote himself to his side hobbies which include porpoise racing, the study of supply-side economics, cooking and raising his lovely merchildren alongside his lovely bride the archconservative Mrs. Dr. J.
