We, the DC Community on Tumblr, raised $54.80 for the We Can Be Heroes program for reblogging and liking this post more than 1000 times.
I’ll also be matching that donation for a little extra, so the total comes to
Here’s the breakdown of how the money is used:
$100 can fund a mobile health team’s ability to help a severely malnourished child make a full recovery
$50 provides a household of six people two weeks of food, water, and hygiene items
$25 provides purification supplies for clean water for 3 families of 6 for a month
$10 provides enough high-nutrient peanut paste to keep a child alive for more than a week
Think of how many lives we are going to save.
Screencaps of the donation (for proof of altruism I suppose):

Thank you so much, fellow heroes and heroines. It doesn’t take a cape and mask to be a hero—just a compassionate heart. And not every heroic act needs to cost money. Simply helping a lost freshman find a classroom on campus, or offering an ear to a worried Tumblr friend—those are all acts of heroism, and the world is a better place because of you <3
