|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.

Thanks, Dexter Turner
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.
