No money involved, no long-term commitments, I just need one minute of your time. I'd like to ask you to visit this page, scroll down a bit, and click the red box to vote.

I met Christian and his father at the first Digital Overload, and they've attended every year since. It has been an absolute pleasure getting to know them over the past few years, and Christian is an inspiration. Despite his hardships he's always got a positive attitude and a fantastic sense of humor, and it's always enjoyable to have him around.

Still, living with a disability such as muscular dystrophy can wear on even the most lionhearted of people, and that's where you come in. We've got a shot here to give Christian and his family a great vacation with a single click of a button. We can get them to sunny, sandy beaches where they can ditch the cares of every day life and get some much needed rest and relaxation.

I can't think of a more deserving family. So, whattya say? Clicky Clicky?

Thank you

You guys are fantastic. You never cease to amaze me with your capacity for generosity and willingness to help out complete strangers.

As I understand it, votes are used to determine finalists, at which point judges review the entry and comments and award vacations to the top three. With over twenty-thousand votes in just a day, I think it's safe to say that we've gotten Christian and his family into the finals.

Fantastic work, folks. Thank you.
