Sue’s Dropping Calories to find a cure for Choroideremia

Published on January 14, 2014 by in Fundraising

Yesterday, we posted about Mark’s quest to lose 83 pounds to raise money for the Choroideremia Foundatoon.  Now, Sue has also promised to drop a few pounds to benefit the cause.   Read her story below:

sue-crf

As you may notice by the pictures, I have put on a couple of pounds over the years. Okay, more than a couple. I have decided that this is the year I going to get rid of those extra pounds. Just like anyone else trying to lose weight, I have come up with something to give me some incentive, and that’s where you come in!

I am asking you to sponsor me in my Dropping Calories 4 A Cure Campaign. You may either sponsor on a per pound basis or a set amount that you will donate when I have reached my goals. I plan to lose 80 pounds!!! Please email me to let me know your sponsorship level. I will be updating my sponsors on my progress.

As you know, my son Markie is losing his sight due to the effects of Choroideremia (CHM). My father has completely lost his sight from this disease. The money we raise will go to the Choroideremia Research Foundation, which is funding the research that we know will save Markies sight. Please help by sponsoring us today or by making a gift using the PayPal button on this page. Thank You from the bottom of my heart for not only helping me reach my goal of weight loss but helping with my ULTIMATE goal in life…..saving my son’s sight!!!

Time and Tide Publishing CHM Charity Calling for Submissions

Published on January 13, 2014 by in Fundraising

531251_215980915186263_181272873_nA call for Writers to send in submissions to help find a cure for Choroideremia through the Time and Tide Publishing CHM Charity anthology.

Let’s write for a cure! As writers, sight is one of the most precious gifts we have, but what if it was fading? What if you had the lingering fear of waking up one day to darkness? For some, it’s a reality. Help us spread the word to stop Choroideremia.

The charity is for The Choroideremia Research Foundation Inc. The disease attacks one’s sight and, gradually, the afflicted person goes blind. There are tons of other debilitating effects, such as never driving car, never seeing a star and having sensitivity to daylight. Also, kids can be born with it, since it’s an inherited disease.

The concept of the anthology is a “chicken soup for the soul” setting. Character(s) must battle with blindness in any genre (except erotica). However, the character with the disease cannot be shown in a negative light throughout the entire story. If they are crumbling, there must be an inspirational, happy ending.

Submissions are open to all authors–published or those aspiring to be published. All submissions must be new material. Previously published submissions will not be considered.

To submit a manuscript for consideration, please follow these guidelines:

  • use the naming convention CHM_Anthology_TITLE and in the subject line of your email indicate CHM Anthology.
  • include a letter of author introduction (in the body of the email)
  • include a blurb of the submitted story and a short synopsis (in the body of the email)
  • attach a Word doc of the full manuscript, 20,000 to 30,000 words (Full manuscripts are required as it is a special project.)

Submissions are open until filled. Send your submission to submissions@timeandtidepublishing.com

100% of the profits go toward The Choroideremia Research Foundation Inc.
