Earlier this week, a post by a Syrian refugee calling himself "the scientist" appeared on the Humans of New York Facebook page, telling the devastating story of how he lost his family and has been fighting against stomach cancer.
It attracted the attention of President Obama, who commented on the post. Now Edward Norton is working with Humans of New York to help campaign to raise money for Syrian refugees, saying:
Yesterday I got an email from Edward Norton, asking if he could host a fundraiser for the scientist in Tuesday's story. ...
So far, $278,500 has been raised. Also, "the scientist" himself said Norton was "awesome in Birdman." Maybe there's hope for humanity after all.
