It is during times of strife and alarm that our mettle is tested!
Can we face trouble head on with courage and maintain our composure?
Perhaps we can even find the strength to fight back and prevail, removing the power menace has over us - now and in the future.
Maintaining one's poise and grace under fire is difficult to master, but it remains an attribute that every lady aspires towards.
Sadly, the 'charity' behind the benefit this post was supporting, the Superhero Epilepsy Combat Syndicate, is a sham. The leader, Epileptic Dreddmor, raised an estimated $500 on behalf of the Epilepsy Foundation from benefits and direct donations over the course of several months. Unfortunately, no money ever made it to the Epilepsy Foundation. When pressed, she admitted this and later it was discovered all the money was gone and she had used it for her own interests.
Many generous people donated their time, items, and money in an attempt to help the Epilepsy Foundation. One person's selfish actions do not diminish the good intentions of those she took advantage of, and I applaud every one of the creators and kind people who tried to support what they believed was a worthy cause.
As for me, I learned a great lesson: never put efforts into something that isn't 100% transparent and honest. If something smells fishy, it is fishy.
I apologize for my association with the S.E.C.S. and urge everyone to be wary of the level of support they show this group and it's leader.
