Tuesday, 26th July - Marbles4MS

I'm a day behind thanks to pressure of work, but noticed that I was being followed by an innovative and caring five-year-old on Twitter.

I've donated in dollars (ah, the beauty of being able to donate to the US with the click of a button) to Connor's fund where he raises money to "fix" his mother who suffers from MS.

Marbles For MS is the idea of our 5-year old son, Connor. Connor is sort of a big picture guy who one day came up with an idea to raise money to help his mother who suffers from the debilitating disease, Multiple Sclerosis. Connor wanted to sell his artwork to help find a cure so his mom could be, in his words, "fixed."
Connor makes his paintings by placing paper in the bottom of a cigar box. He dips the marbles into paint and drops them in the box one at a time. He closes the lid and shakes like crazy.

Some of the resulting pictures can be seen on this page. Each design is different and colors vary. Connor named this project "Marbles For MS."
