Helping The Kyrie Foundation

I usually post information about my latest work and share a few designs on this blog, but tonight I have a much greater cause that I want to share with you.

The Kyrie Foundation brings awareness, funding, families and scientists together to help cure pediatric brain cancer. This foundation began a few years back, after the loss of little 19 month old Kyrie battling with this cancer. She was the niece of a dear friend of mine and this cause is very dear to her heart. I am sure that I cannot do the foundation justice with my words and therefore want to encourage you to look at the sites I have available and hope that you can help make a difference for other children battling this disease.

Here is how you can make that difference over the next ten days. The foundation is eligible for this month’s $250K Pepsi Refresh Everything grant. It has reached 6th place to date and has until October 31 to have votes cast for it, and hopefully become one of the top two positions to receive this grant. The only thing needed by you is the willingness to vote and a few brief minutes in your days. It is simply a matter of being able to click a mouse or text in a vote! ;)

Here are the three ways you can help; you can vote these 3 ways every day until October 31:

1) Text 103447 to 73774
2) Visit Pepsi Refresh's FB page and click “go to application” to vote.

The Kyrie Foundation will always be there, but this opportunity to help in what seems like such a small way will not be after October 31. What is such a simple task over the next few days could become an enormous contribution for the foundation to help others. Below are sites which will give you a better understand about the foundation and the families who are helped through it. Thank you in advance for your support.
