NBC News described the first of the 24 stories it will present in an email to AllFacebook:
Spread the Story #FightEbola will launch on Today with an in-depth story from Katie Meyler, a vivacious woman from New Jersey who started More than Me, a not-for-profit in Liberia that aims to keep young girls in school.
