I’m sure you’ve seen them on your Facebook feeds before, photos of a young toddler with some sort of disease, sickness, or even cancer. The photos are so devastating, that it tugs at your heartstrings. You can’t ignore it. And there’s usually a caption beside it that says “This little baby has cancer and he needs money for surgery. Facebook has decided to help by giving 1 Like = 2 dollars, 1 Comment = 4 dollars, 1 share = 8 dollars. Please don’t scroll down without typing Amen.”
