Buy A Monster Drawing, Help Save A Kid’s Life

Aidan is a badass. This five year old loves monsters, and he uses any excuse to dress up in costume - especially ones he creates himself out of paper and crayons. And last month he was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, which is not a particularly badass illness. In fact, it completely sucks. Aidan has gone through the first round of chemo and come through like a champ, but he still has years of treatment ahead of him. Also not badass: the cost of health care in this country. Aidan’s parents have set up a website, Aid For Aiden, to collect donations to help the little badass out.

I learned about Aiden through the Twitter feed of Joe Lynch’s new film, Knights Of Badassdom. You should follow them!
