Check this video out!  Not only is it a great song, it is doing great things to help kids and all those affected daily by autism. Pass the info on to your friends please. The band, Five for Fighting, is generously donating $0.49 to Autism Speaks each time the video is viewed. The funding goes toward research studies to help find a cure. When you have a moment, please visit the link below to watch the video and pass it along to your friends and family. They are aiming for 10,000 hits, but hopefully we can help them to surpass this goal.

Layne's Legacy - Beading for A Cure The new beadwork is up now. Auction dates will be in the month of March, which is National Colorectal Cancer Month. The web site says "Layne's Legacy is an annual beading challenge dedicated to raising money for the National Colorectal Cancer Research Association in honor of our friend Layne Shilling, who lost her battle with colorectal cancer in November 2002. The premise of the challenge is simple: participants purchase a kit which contains a variety of beads. Each kit is identical. At least one of each bead type must be used in the finished project and the beader can only add one other type of bead to the project (but as many non-bead items as they wish). When the projects are all finished, they are auctioned off on eBay and all of the proceeds (minus operating costs) go to the NCCRA, donated in Layne's name. This is our way of honoring the memory of a wonderful beader and good friend."

Till the next time, bead well.
