I know this is aggravating and obtrusive but I am raising money for The Schepens Eye Research Institute via the Blogathon. The Schepens is a research organization devoting time to fight blindness whether it be caused by nerve damage, macular degeneration, retinal detachment/damage, etc. The Blogathon is a twentyfour hour marathon where writers publish posts/blogs every thirty minutes. Their sponsors pay per hour or a lump sum. PLEASE Sponsor me. I have glaucoma and suffer optic nerve damage so I am not totally new to the pain - far from it.
