The MySQL community is mobilizing to help a 2 year old boy who is at grave risk of dying.
The son of Andrii Nikitin, MySQL Support engineer, needs a bone marrow transplant to survive.
Online donations are the fastest way of helping this unfortunate kid.
His father is doing whatever it takes to help his son, including mortgaging or selling his possessions, but that may not be enough. Everybody's help is necessary to give this boy a chance.
Last Saturday my accountant gave me the unpleasant news that I have to pay the IRS a large sum of money. Nothing you can do with taxes, unless you are a crook. My choice of action was to counter the unwelcome IRS news with some hope. So, in addition to paying my taxes, I donated for Ivan, and I felt better. I felt richer, actually.
