Cryonics hardship fundraiser - success!
We are thrilled to report that our matching fundraiser in support of the cryonics hardship case of Aaaron Winborn who suffers from motor neuron disease (Lou Gehrig's -ALS) has been successful. $1100 was raised by our members, which will now be doubled by LongeCity and send to the Venturists who are busy raising the full amount needed - they still need your help so if you missed the opportunity to donate at LongeCity, you can still contribute to this cause on the Venturist webpage.
