Do Something Good (and Do Fun Stuff)
Thursday, August 19, 2010
Let's get serious for a minute. I need your help because my favorite blogger on planet earth needs our help. Ryan at Pacing the Panic Room is doing something amazing and because we bloggers have have the ability to reach an insane amount of people we need to spread the word. If you don't know Ryan's work what rock have you been living under? Just kidding. But you've seriously been missing out. He documents his life (among other things) and most famously photographed his wife's pregnancy. Cue the awwww... (By the way, there are some really terrible knockoff's of Ryan's maternity series out there. When I see it I just cringe but alas, I'm not here to complain. Just know he was the original genius.)
Anyhoo, back to the point...
Ryan is spearheading an album for charity to raise money for Smith Magenis Syndrome - a rare genetic disorder that The Littlest Buddy (his stepson) was diagnosed with. Here's what you you can do to help:
1. Visit Ryan's blog and read this post - it will answer all your questions about the album launch on August 30th and tell you the ways you can help and why you should.
2. Be a twitter maniac today and spread the word using the hash tag #dofunstuff and gently begging Ellen to have a dance party on her show. Come up with your own kind plea or retweet mine.
3. Mark your calendar for August 30th - the day we will post/tweet/facebook about the album launch and share the goodness.
This is my most favorite thing about blogging - making online buddies, falling in love with their stories and being able to do something good with our voices. So come on guys, if you call yourself a friend (or even if you hate my guts) have a heart and help out!
