I have been lax in welcoming the new members of The Three Hundred over the past few weeks, generous supporters all of the Mprize for longevity research and SENS research funded by the Methuselah Foundation. They are the Glenn Foundation for Medical Research (of course, based upon their year-end donation), Clay Woolam, Darren Maupin, Christopher Dowling and David Stern. Thank you all for stepping up the plate and helping to advance the quest to cure aging!
While looking at the master list of donors to the Methuselah Foundation, Richard R. Puckett’s comment caught my eye:
With this donation I hope to strike a small blow for a more hopeful future; one where people live longer, healthier lives and the wisdom of age is combined with the energy and passion of youth.
I think we can all agree with that vision for the years ahead.
Every little bit counts folk – even if you’re not ready to join The Three Hundred, give a little to show that you support research for longer, healthier lives. People of far greater wealth than you or I hear that sort of support, shown by hundreds or thousands, as a call to action – but it is up to those of us of more modest means to get the ball rolling by demonstrating that we care enough to act.
