Many of you probably know that my daughter was born with a congenital heart defect called Transposition of the Great Arteries (TGA) and required open-heart surgery a week after she was born. (More info can be found from this post.) Today she is a healthy, active, “normal” two year old thanks to the doctors at Children’s Hospital of Illinois and research funded by The Children’s Miracle Network.
Now you can help save the lives of millions of children just like my daughter without spending any money or exerting much effort. WordPress and Showtime have teamed together to support the Children’s Miracle Network. All you have to do is scroll down to the red box with the CMN logo on the bottom right side of my blog and click on the box that says “Help now. It’s free”. Showtime will ask you to watch a short trailer for one of their series. (When I clicked, it was for Nurse Jackie, which looks like an awesome show starring Edie Falco from The Sopranos.)
That is ALL you have to do and Showtime will make a donation to The Children’s Miracle Network! (C’mon, it’s not like you weren’t going to watch some trailers on the net today anyway!)
UPDATE: (11/12/09) Showtime’s sponsorship has ended. Thank you to everyone that watched a trailer and left a message. With your help we raised over $5,000 for the Children’s Miracle Network!
