Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day: March 25

Spaz in solidarity with me, my friends. I have just discovered that March 25th is Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day. This is an excellent opportunity for the world to hear our voices and realize the particular issues that individuals with CP face. I've started a campaign on Twitter - retweet #cpawarenessday to show your support and we could get some major awareness going!

Also, I was thinking of making this into a blog event. I noticed several bloggers blogged on this topic on CP Awareness Day last year - it would be REALLY cool to do a BADD-esque roundup. So...if you write something for CP Awareness Day, send it to me, and we'll have a Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day Blog Event! :D Hope to "see" you all there!

Hi,
I am Martha, a sociology major from Bloomsburg University in Pennsylvania. I am blind, have depression, and work with a service dog. I found you through the disability blog carnival. I am doing research about bloggers with disabilities. Since blogs are fairly recent, they have not been studied often, and as with most sociological research, disability is rarely discussed. If disability is studied, it is done by able-bodied people. I have enjoyed reading your blog, and would like to interview you about why you blog about disability, advantages and disadvantages of blogging, ETC if you are interested. If you decide to participate, no identifying information will be used.
Thank you,
Martha
