Rilley asks you to support Camp Bucko (and it won't cost you a cent!)

Rilley says "Please support Camp Bucko!"
In the post "Rilley the therapy dog...well, sort of" we mentioned that our youngest daughter Elizabeth had suffered severe burns to her legs and feet back in March.  Now I realize that this post may not fit in with the theme of Rilley's journey with a brain tumour, but we feel it is important to have this reach as many people as possible.
Elizabeth had the amazing opportunity to attend Camp Bucko this past week.  For those that haven't heard of it, Camp Bucko is a unique summer camp for kids that have been victims of severe burns.  It is run by a dedicated group of volunteers through the generous donations of various people and organizations.  One of those who volunteer their time is famous barbeque chef Ted Reader.  This past Wednesday Ted and his team traveled up to the camp to prepare an excellent lunch for all the campers and volunteers.

However, Ted is taking things one step further and has entered a contest sponsored by Grolsch beer.  Grolsch is giving away $10,000 that, if he wins, Ted will donate to Camp Bucko.  This is why I've decided to dedicate a post on our little blog, it is our small way of saying thank you for all that the camp has done for children like Elizabeth.  I would like to ask that you visit Ted's page on the Grolsch Mark contest site and vote for his video.  Voting is done by using your Facebook and/or Twitter accounts, meaning that if you have both, you can vote twice. You can vote once per day with each account.  The contest closes October 31, 2011, so there's plenty of time to register lots of votes!
