Stop Mesothelioma Raises $10,000 in First 24 Hours and Donates It to Florida Charity Run to Fund Mesothelioma Research
November 9, 2011 - Members of the mesothelioma community showed the enormous power of social media by raising more than $10,000 in 24 hours on a new Facebook page called Stop Mesothelioma. Levy Phillips & Konigsberg, LLP ("LPK"), the 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.
After reaching 10,000 "Likes" within the first 24 hours, LPK announced that the first $10,000 would be donated to the 3rd Annual South Florida Miles for Meso 8K Run and 4K Tribute Walk. Larry Davis, the race director and a mesothelioma survivor, said, "We are very thankful for the support of LPK. This money is needed to help find a cure for this disease." Mr. Davis' annual event, scheduled for February 12, 2012, in Boca Raton, has previously raised more than $50,000, all of which is donated directly to the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation ("Meso Foundation").
LPK intends to donate all money from the Stop Mesothelioma project to the Meso Foundation, the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization ("ADAO"), and fundraising events that support these organizations.
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).
