- Angelman Syndrome
My sister’s little boy has Angelman Syndrome. Don’t worry if you’re not familiar with what that means. Neither were we. Jennifer explains it much better than I possibly could on her blog… Please click here to read Cameron’s story.
When I received an email from Jennifer telling me about an organization that donates money to charities based on online votes, I immediately started tweeting the link, and asking people to please vote for F.A.S.T. This is a charity that works with Angelman families, and I’ve seen first hand what great work they do.
It’s quick, easy, and free. As of this writing F.A.S.T. is currently in the #1 spot to receive a $250,000 donation, but they need your help to maintain that lead! You can be sure that others are aiming to knock them out of that top position. So please… take a minute and click either of the graphics above or below to vote for this amazing charity. It really is a worthwhile cause.
Every year President’s Choice Children’s Charity chooses 1 child from across Canada to feature as the inspiration for their holiday bear. This year, my nephew Cameron was selected. What a wave of emotion, as we learned that Cameron would be part of this amazing gift. Cameron has Angelman Syndrome, and has benefited greatly from the generosity of the President’s Choice Children’s Charity. They were able to help my sister and her husband get a wheel-chair accessible van, making it MUCH easier to transport Cameron in his wheelchair.
At only $10, the Cameron bear is an amazing value. And for every bear sold, $2 is donated to PC Children’s Charity ($4 if you purchase the bear with a PC Mastercard). I picked up 3 of these great little guys the other day, and will be handing them out for Christmas this year.
You should be able to pick these up at any SuperStore. I’m pretty sure that the name changes across Canada, but it’s the Atlantic SuperStore in this part. (Loblaws, Dominion, No Frills, Save Easy, among others)
