The wonderfully talented Neil Patrick Harris celebrates his 40th birthday on June 15th this year. We all know that Neil is super cool and supports a bunch of charities, so to show our appreciation we're raising money for Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation in his name.
Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer is a charity set up to raise money and awareness for pediatric cancer research. It all started when Alex Scott, a four year old girl from Connecticut who was suffering from Neuroblastoma, decided to hold a lemonade stand to raise money for the hospital that helped her during her treatment. Alex passed away in 2004 at the age of 8, having already raised over $1m for her cause, and ALSF continues that good work. You can read Alex's story in full here, in her own words.
Our target is $500. Neil has almost 6 million followers on Twitter - if every one of those people gave just one dollar, he'd have the honour of $6m being raised in his name for an amazing charity. But we're more realistic - while Neil has millions of followers, we don't. We need you to spread the word. And if we can get just 500 of those 6 million people to donate a dollar - less than 0.01% of Neil's total followers - we can do some great work.
Of course we'd love to smash our target and show Neil how awesome we think he is, so anything you can spare would be a wonderful contribution, whether that's just $1 or something more!
