Annual Cyber Monday Sale! DVD. Shirt. Field Guide!
Wednesday Update :: Sale is over! We did it! Thank you everyone!
Happy Holidays one and all! It’s time for our annual OneLight DVD Cyber Monday sale for charity! In addition to having our one day, and one day only DVD sale, my BFF Ab8ta and I have teamed up again to bring you a limited edition t-shirt. Don’t you love the OMG BOKEH of Christmas lights? We’ve got the shirt for you! Our limited Spray & Pray shirt sold out in one day. This one will go as fast most likely.
As with all things that I unabashedly sell on this blog, proceeds from this sale are going to a great cause. Meet Quinn…
When Meg was eight years old her family met a young 20 something year old guy named Roger through their church. Roger was looking for a place to live and Meg’s family needed a little extra income to help out with rent each month. Roger, undaunted by the prospect of moving in with a family with four small kids, one with special needs, moved into the extra bedroom in their little house in Decatur, Georgia and quickly became a part of the family. Meg still refers to Roger as her “big brother”. He was very close to Meg’s family and so, when he got married and started having kids of his own, he named his 2nd daughter, Quinn, after Meg’s family.
About two months ago we got news that Quinn, who is now 14, was diagnosed with a genetic condition called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (a connective tissue disorder). The EDS also caused Quinn to have a tethered spinal cord, severe scoliosis, and a chiari malformation in the brain. (A chiari malformation is a serious neurological disorder where the bottom part of the brain, the cerebellum, descends out of the skull and crowds the spinal cord, putting pressure on both the brain and spine and causing many symptoms.)
She is in need of surgery to untether her spinal cord, and then decompression surgery to relieve the pressure in her brain. She spends every day with severe pain, back spasms, muscle cramping, and is unable to stand upright. She has lost her hearing in her left ear, lost the ability to read as her vision is blurry, has frequent seizures, and insomnia due to the pain. There are very few neurosurgeons who understand the connection between the EDS and the tethered cord/chiari malformation in the U.S., but her family has found a fabulous neurosurgeon in Washington, D.C who is very familiar with her situation. Sadly, their insurance company has denied her surgery because the neurosurgeon is out of state. Roger has a new job with benefits that kick in Jan. 1, 2013. Unfortunately, the doctor is still out-of-network, and there is a $20,000 deductible that must be met.
We want to help her meet that deductible and then some.
The OneLight DVD is for sale today for half price! $75 get’s you a 2 disc set of everything you need to know to get started with off camera flash.
It’s on sale today… and today only.
The shirt is sold out!
Ab8ta has sold all the shirts!!! Check out his other shirts though. The Johnny Cusack is my personal favorite.
We are only a few DVDs away from meeting our goal to help Quinn. As soon as we hit that goal the sale is over and I’m back to my social media sabbatical!
BUT WAIT! There’s more!
For today… and today only. The OneLight Field Guide is on sale in print for $21.00 and… in e-book form (and through Mag Cloud’s iPad app) for $10.
Lastly… If none of this is for you, do me a favor… If this blog has ever been of help to you can you repay that by donating directly to Quinn? We’d all appreciate that. Check out her ChipIn page and follow her on facebook. Let’s make this happen. Let’s all chip in and make a difference to Quinn.
