A Chance To Do Something Good!

Ali Edwards, one of the artists within the scrapbooking industry that I most admire has a son that has autism. She is incredibly proactive in supporting the cause for research to learn more about autism and I know that within my own family and friends autism has made itself a known presence and here is a chance for us to be a part in knowing and learning more about autism so we can not only try to find a cure, but learn more about the disease itself and support those that are directly affected. Below you will see a quote from Ali and a link to her blog where you can learn more on how to donate to this cause. Out of all the people involved in the Six Degree's Contest Ali, (little hometown mama, scrapbooker, writer, editor - turned celebrity), is in first place. Kevin Bacon will donate $10,000.00 to the top 6 causes and right now, as I mentioned before Ali's in first place...let's help her stay there!

do something good
Over the last few months I have been participating in a fundraising effort through The contest is coming to an end this Saturday at 11:59pm. Currently my badge is in first place, but the competition is really heating up as we near the end. Today, I want to invite you to join me in this effort to raise funds for Autism Speaks. A minimum $10 donation is all that is needed to make a difference. The contest will be won by the top 6 badges with the most number of individual donations. To donate, simply click the donate button on the blue badge located on the right side of my blog.The response so far has been amazing. Over 1300 people have donated. As a thank you for all those who have donated (and encouraged others to do the same), I posted a workshop-project download on my blog last week. You can access that here. In addition, today, tomorrow and Saturday I will be doing a giveaway from comments left on my blog - look for another surprise this evening as well. Thank you for your time and your continued support. -Ali Edwards
