The Huffington Post article here is about the current outbreak of Ebola in West Africa. It is huge, scary, and deserves the attention and aid of the international community.
It takes a brave soul to be willing to be in direct contact and vicinity with victims of this terrifying illness. So first, lets take a second to appreciate those who are willing to risk their life and limb to help the afflicted and suppress the spreading. Talk about dedication.
So here’s the question: what is the average individual willing to do to help in medically infectious situations?

Is it donating money, drawing awareness, or some other method of contribution?
