I’m in Blogathon 2007!

I am officially registered for Blogathon 2007. I’ll be blogging at least once every 30 minutes starting at 9am (Eastern) July 28th, until 9am on the 29th. I’m hoping that people will sponsor me, as I am raising money for the CHARGE Syndrome Foundation. Pledges can be a lump sum if I make it through the entire 24 hours; or a per hour basis ($1/hour is $24, $5/hour is $120). I don’t make any money off of this, I am just supporting a wonderful organization that has helped my sister-in-love, brother-in-love, and niece. I’ll have more specific information later about what I’ll be blogging about, and the contest I’ll be running.

  2. I am a professional who has worked with CHARGE syndrome for more than 20 years. We are just beginning to understand what it means to have this disorder that can include life-threatening medical problems and can affect every sensory system. Among foundations, the CHARGE Syndrome Foundation is very small. It allocates nearly all of its resources to providing information to support families and professionals affected by this disorder. Children and especially adults with CHARGE need every bit of help that they can get because there are very few professionals, agencies, or organizations that (1)understand the complex problems associated with multiple congenital anomalies or (2)have the means to provide appropriate assistance. I am biased, but I contribute whatever I can to the Foundation because I know how well the money is spent and I know how many people have been helped. I will contribute to this fundraising effort.
