PLEASE HELP THE LITTLE ONES

As you may not know, I am involved with several charities. This to me is a particularly deserving cause and it has touched me quite deeply.

Mute Tourette's Syndrome has long been in the shadow of its more famous sister disease and although much rarer, is even more tragic in its consequences. While a child suffering from Tourette's has difficulty containing their anger and frustration resulting in spontaneous verbal eruptions, a child with Mute Tourette's cannot express itself in this fashion.

There is however an answer. A great deal has been achieved by the Mute Tourette's Foundation using new art therapy techniques. But their work can only continue with our help. Just 50 cents will keep a child in crayons a for a day, and $2.50 will provide enough paper for a whole week.

I hope you can help me and give your support. I've attached a picture of what the therapy can achieve, and I believe it will affect you as it did me.

I'll let people google for the Foundation. It's so gauche to solicit funds on a bulletin board. I'm just trying to spread some awareness in my own small way.

Oh dinz. You were ever the softhearted, caring sort. I'll be sending my entire life savings. Which isn't really very much, actually, but you know - every little bit helps!

^^ Zennie, you are SO stingy. I happen to know that you have TWO kidneys. look into your (one) heart, and try to be more generous.

What a great idea! I have some extra Ns, Os and Ps, all in Helvetica Neue Light Condensed Italic that I can contribute. E-mail me if you can use them.

You're all so very generous. I dont know what to say

And thanks Mr Pants, there's a little girl at our local Center for Mute Tourettes who can only express herself by writing HAIRY NIPS. I know she could use some of those extra letters.

I, too, would like to volunteer my time! After all, we wouldn't want them spelling those precious words incorrectly.

And I have art supplies I can contribute, too.

I'll have to check for a chapter in my area...
