Please Take a Moment of Your Time.

One of our fellow writers needs our help. His 16 year old son was seriously injured in a longboarding accident and the medical costs are piling up.  Let's show him what the writing community is made of. Today we are spreading the word. Please join the Donation Bomb and take the few minutes to tweet, Facebook, blog, pin about Ben Wolverton and his road to recovery.

Taken from the Help Ben page:

Ben Wolverton, age 16, was in a tragic longboarding accident on April 3rd, 2013. He suffers from severe brain trauma, a cracked skull, broken pelvis and tail bone, burnt knees, bruised lungs, broken ear drums, road rash, and pneumonia. He was in a coma, but has recently awakened. His family has no insurance.
