Editor's Note: Will Pearson, the co-founder, President & Publisher of mental_floss, has a favor to ask. I'm handing him the microphone...
As many of you know, mental_floss has offices in a few cities around the country but our main editorial office for the magazine is in Birmingham, AL. We try to find ways to give back to the Birmingham area and one of the organizations we like to help is called Magic Moments. It's a non-profit that grants wishes to children in Alabama who are diagnosed with life-threatening or life-altering medical conditions. It's an incredible organization and I've been very fortunate to serve on the board and see many of these wishes granted.
So, regardless of your location, if you're up for supporting this wonderful organization, you can follow this link to my personal page in this campaign. There you'll read a story about one of our brave children.
Thanks for letting me steal a minute of your time.
