Blog Party!!

Thursday September 16, 2010
join us!
together we can end SMA - one post at a time!

Yes, an official “SMA BLOG PARTY!” The first ever! What’s a “Blog Party”? Simple — We all come together and post about the same topic on the same day —
 in this case Spinal Muscular Atrophy, SMA!
On THURSDAY, September 16th, bloggers will come together to
1) Talk about SMA,
2) Put a face to this awful disease, and
3) Help WIN $20,000 for SMA research! By simply posting about SMA and asking YOUR friends and blog followers to get involved by VOTING for the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation in Jimmie Johnson’s Samsung Helmet of Hope contest — you are making a difference! It doesn’t matter if you have 5 or 50,000 followers — it’s about coming together, joining in, and giving the Internet an SMA blast!

Not sure what to write? The point is to answer that “What is SMA?” question and why funding is so necessary! It can be a quick link. It can be a long post. It’s up to you. You can write about how SMA has impacted you or you are welcome to post about our family. You can post one of the videos from either of the YouTube channels (GSF Channel or GSF Channel #2) or get permission from one of the thousands and thousands of families living with this disease. Or simply include SMA stats. (Click here for SMA facts.) But, no matter what you write, please be sure to include how your blog followers can help end SMA by voting for the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation to win $20,000 for SMA research at every day in September through Jimmie Johnson’s Samsung Helmet of Hope contest. Simply cut and paste the below as part of your post:
PLEASE VOTE: It’s really this simple –>
You can vote once EVERY DAY from now until September 29th at 5 PM EDT

Go to, select the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation, enter the two security words, check the Official Rules box, and then click “Vote Now!”

That’s it! It’s really that simple

Don’t forget to add your name to the list so you don’t miss a $20K vote.

And…don’t stop there — SHARE!

And…as a THANK YOU for participating in the “SMA BLOG PARTY” and contributing to the fight against SMA, you will receive TWO additional entries in the Cristina Ashley Designs Necklace Giveaway for Gwendolyn’s Birthday Bonanza. Simply leave a link to your awesome “SMA BLOG PARTY” post in the comment section of our “SMA BLOG PARTY” post on Thursday. And if you want to help kick it up a notch — ask your blog followers to join the party and post about SMA on their blogs, too!

Sooooooo…will you be joining us on THURSDAY, September 16th? Will you help raise the bar on the #1 genetic killer of young children — SMA? Will you help fight for the thousands of children dying from this cruel disease? Together we can make a difference! Together we can end SMA — one blog post at a time
Here’s to ending SMA! Thank you for your help!

.... and in case you need another reason to help:

Kendra - I hope it is okay I posted a blog about it today. I work tomorrow and am afraid I will forget, but I wanted to get the word out ASAP. I also very much used your family, and a picture of Kenzie in my post. If that is not okay by you, please let me know and I will remove it immediately.

These are the times I wish I had a blog, but I will make sure to tell people about SMA!!

I have to say, that pic of Kenzie is incredible. Her soulful eyes just capture your heart-no better reason that that to join in the blog party and keep on voting.
Hugs!! Em

I am a new follower.

I hope to learn as much as possible about this horrible disease to better educate myself and those around me.

I will be voting every day from now on. I hope that this helps you achieve the funds you need to fight this disease.

What a beautiful little girl.

Teri :)

It's late in the evening, but I made a post on my blog.

I also used that beautiful photo of Kenzie. If you mind, I will of course take it down.

I put a plea for votes on my blog. I'm a day late for the 'blog party', but not too late to get you a few votes.
