Stop Mesothelioma Raises $40,000 in One Week and Donates It to Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation
November 14, 2011 - In just one week, a new Facebook page called Stop Mesothelioma has raised $40,000 in an unprecedented social media campaign. Levy Phillips & Konigsberg LLP ("LPK"), the creator and sponsor of the page, has pledged to donate $1 to mesothelioma research and efforts to ban asbestos for every "Like" the page receives up to $100,000.
LPK announced last week the donation of the first $10,000 to a Florida mesothelioma fundraiser that benefits the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation ("Meso Foundation").
Today, LPK announced that it has donated the newly raised $30,000 directly to the Meso Foundation. Jerome H. Block, an LPK partner and asbestos lawyer, said, "We are thrilled to make this donation to the Meso Foundation because they are the leading non-profit seeking a cure for mesothelioma. We are even more thrilled that this money has been generated through a campaign that is raising awareness about the urgent need to cure mesothelioma and ban asbestos."
Each year, the Meso Foundation holds an International Symposium on Malignant Mesothelioma, which brings together patients and leading researchers from around the world. This year’s conference is scheduled for July 12-14, 2012, in Washington, D.C.
LPK is a national law firm that has represented families affected by mesothelioma for more than 25 years. For more information, please call 1-800-MESO-LAW (1-800-637-6529).
