National SMA Awareness Month SweepstakesJuly 31, 2010 by Victoria Strong I was just getting ready to post about this amazing thing author Chris Finlan is doing and let folks know they can still participate in this awesome thing, when I got a call about his newest generous idea! August is National Spinal Muscular Atrophy Awareness Month and to kick things off, Chris decided to host a fun sweepstakes. This is what Chris had to say about it:
So happy National SMA Awareness Month -- okay that is a little odd to say, but I am happy! This is something positive to help highlight a disease that needs attention! Thanks so much Chris! You ROCK!!!
One of the major reason I wrote Not A Fire Exit was to help raise awareness around this disease. Whether you love or hate the book, once you read it, you will know how truly devastating SMA is for any family to experience first-hand. And since August is National SMA Awareness Month, I decided to do something special to help spread the word and raise money for SMA research.
From now until August 31st, we're giving people the chance to win several great prizes, including Phillies tickets, Amazon Giftcards, and the grand prize, your choice of a brand new Xbox 360 or Nintendo Wii videogame system.
