    The quote on your blog perfectly summarizes all that is important, especially with regard to fighting for a cause. I'm amazed at the outpouring of support...all because of scrapbookers with amazing honor...and you...and Simon...amazing too!

    Congratulations once again!
    ... And just because the Contest is over... and Autism Speaks is going to get 10K from Kevin as well .. just remember everyone that the fund raising doesn't stop. So for those that didn't get a chance they can still donate... there is no limit to what can be raised... we can keep up the tell one more person mantra!

    I just wanted to say, Happy Sunday, Ali. It's April first and you're done (temporarily, I'm sure) with the fundraising and finishing up the book anytime now.
    I hope you have a relaxing day. Peace.

    Congratulations Ali and team! I belong to the "other" team, but of course the Bubel Aiken Foundation shares your goals. One of the BAF founders was Diane Bubel who has an autistic son. The other founder, singer Clay Aiken, was a caregiver for her son before he became a famous singer.
    You are an awesome fundraiser Ali. Thank you for all you do to in support of autistic children and their families.
    A special thanks to Kevin Bacon who has connected all of us and inspired so many to give for some wonderful causes. We are all winners here!
