Proceeds from Batkid Begins will go to the Batkid Fund!

Forgot to mention that proceeds from Batkid Begins will go to the Batkid Fund!

From Chris Taylor at Mashable:

"It seems only fitting that following a day when the world demonstrated caring and compassion for Batkid, Batkid can now help others," said Miles' parents, Nick and Natalie Scott. "We were honored to receive many offers of gifts or assistance, but now that Miles' leukemia is in remission, we want to use this moment to draw attention to other parents who are coping with serious illness."

The Batkid Fund will operate under the auspices of the San Francisco Forty Niners' Foundation. Proceeds will benefit three charities chosen by the Scotts: a local medical center, the Ronald McDonald House, and the Make-a-Wish Foundation, which put Miles' spectacular day together in the first place.

"Last Friday, kindness and compassion won the day," says Patricia Wilson, Executive Director of Make-a-Wish's Bay Area chapter. "Now it has an opportunity to live on thanks to this special little boy and his generous parents."
