Save on Funeral Costs by Donating Your Whole Body To Science


Save on Funeral Costs by Donating Your Whole Body To Science

We’re all going to die, and paying for it sucks. If you want to ensure your family avoids an expensive funeral, Science Care can pick up your body so they can skip all funeral and cremation fees.

There’s no easy way to test this service personally of course, but Frugal Fringe shared their experiences using Science Care. If Science Care accepts the donation, they cover all the fees associated with cremation and removal of the body. Even if you’re healthy, they’ll let you register and carry a card with you.

If you’ve got a family member who doesn’t have religious or moral objections to a service like this, it could save you some money in the end. Read more about it at the link below.

Facebook Donating 50 Laptops to Nearby High School, Conducting Class on App Creation


HighSchoolStudentsLaptops650Sequoia High School in Redwood City, Calif., is reaping the benefits of being located near Facebook’s headquarters in Menlo Park.

AP reported that Facebook will donate 50 laptops to the school and conduct a class to teach students how to create their own mobile applications.

Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in an appearance at Sequoia High School, as reported by AP:

If you start with the assumption that everything in the future is going to be different than it is now, then it’s not true that anyone else knows any more than you guys do about what’s going to work in the future.

And Facebook chief information officer Tim Campos told AP:

What we’re really trying to do is to create the same types of opportunities for the next Mark Zuckerberg.
