Sarah McNulty Asks Beyonce to Donate Proceeds of Song to Challenger Learning Centers

When Sarah McNulty (who lives on the Space Coast and does PR for the aerospace industry) heard that Beyonce had sampled a clip from the Challenger disaster in her song “XO,” she was outraged. She thought it was a thoughtless gesture that “reopened an old wound.” So she started a petition asking Beyonce to donate 25% of the proceeds of the song to the Challenger Learning Center, an educational science center started by the families of the fallen astronauts. The petition has received more than 6,000 signatures and media coverage from all over the country, including:

I like hearing about our actions get press coverage, but now I'm wondering whether this is in addition to hearing about successes where efforts achieved desired results or in place of hearing about success--I truly hope it is the former and not the latter.
