Dress Up 2 Cure: Join Me

March 3rd, 2009

du2c083 Many of you know that I have a friend who’s little girl has Rett Syndrome. We first learned about Rett Syndrome back when Brooklyn was diagnosed. We want to help in any way we can, but since we live so far away from our friends it’s difficult. One way we can support them is to help out with a charity that supports them. That’s why we got involved with several Rett Syndrome Charities.
On April 1, there’s an event called Dress Up 2 Cure. This is a great way to get involved to help raise money and awareness for Rett Syndrome through my blog. So here’s what I’m going to do; I’m going to donate $10 to Girl Power 2 Cure for every person that sends me a photo of themselves, their children, or their pet dressed up (I’m particularly excited to get photos of your pets dressed up – hint, hint). You can also post a picture on your own blog if you’d like and link to this post, I’ll donate $10 for you if you do that as well. I also started a Flickr group for this event, you can upload your photos there as well and I’ll donate for that too.
On April 1, 2009 I’m going to post all the photos you send in on my blog (so please don’t send photos you don’t want posted on my blog). I’ll also include the links to all of your posts if you put the photos on your blog. Help us raise money to find a cure for Rett Syndrome. I even have my own page over at the Dress Up 2 Cure website so check it out: Chiot’s Run at Dress up 2 Cure. I would love to raise $500 for this event, that’s only 50 photos. So get dressed up and send them in, let’s show all the little girls with Rett Syndrome that we care!

So, who’s in?

    I’m in! No idea what kind of costume will be in play, but I will think of something I know. This is a great idea and way to touch the life of friends who are a bit far away.

    Well no children or pets here and I don’t like my photo taken but I can sure come up with something. I will add it to your flickr group, I’m Dan’s Exposure Compensation.
