today is my birthday, which is my favorite holiday of the year. it's a bonanza, maybe a week-long event for me, where i giggle a lot and accept kind words gracefully and eat more mcdonald's than i usually do.
this year i'm diverting some of the attention to a little girl named Lila. she was born with Cerebral Palsy and that sucks. CP is a condition affecting brain and nervous functions involving any or all of the following: movement, mobility, learning, hearing, seeing and thinking. it is a lifelong condition and there is no cure, but studies involving stem cell/umbilical cord transplant look promising.
a group of artists (the Creative Coconuts) have come up with the idea of creating a Blog Hop, where people take turns blogging about Lila and CP in general, with the goals of enlightening their readers and hopefully raising money towards providing Lila with stem cell therapy.
all of the vital information can be found on Lila's Blog HERE. please also check out What Is Design HERE, which is the site i found that compelled me to get involved. please take a few clicks and spread the word. i'll consider it my birthday present :)
