Last night, Manny Munoz, the founder of Gamerosity, received an email that surprised him quite a bit.
Gamerosity is a charity, started by Manny, that raises money to send out iPads, video games systems and other fun electronic goodies to kids fighting cancer. Manny is a cancer survivor himself, and his charity has done amazing things for kids with their Hero Packages.
Antranette Nolan had nominated Emily, the fictional daughter with cancer that she had invented, for Gamerosity’s Little Hero Wall, on April 24th. Last night, Manny received a second email from Antranette, inquiring on the status of Emily’s nomination.
Manny’s reply was priceless.
Antranette contacted us this afternoon confessing to writing the Emily is Strong Facebook page. She claimed she did it to raise money for a family member’s funeral expenses and that she only deleted the page when she realized that she didn’t actually need to pay the bills.
I’m not sure if that’s the truth, considering Antranette was contacting Gamerosity for video game systems, but she’s sticking with that story.
