The Christmas 2009 season is officially upon us and everyone in our house is excitedly counting down the days with three different Advent calendars. Even more exciting is this very cool Web site: Controllable Christmas Lights for Celiac Disease!
This free Web site, run by Alek Komarnitsky from Boulder, Colorado has more than 20,000 holiday lights that can be controlled by Web surfers on three live Web cams. The site lets visitors get in on the fun and is helping to raise awareness of Celiac Disease because his two young sons have the autoimmune disorder. Donations are accepted directly to the University of Maryland Center for Celiac Research. More than $40,000 has been raised through holiday lights already. Environmentalists will be happy to know that Komarnitsky uses wind power and that the lights can be turned off with the click of a mouse.
Please visit the site at Controllable Christmas Lights for Celiac Disease. The controllable lights begin at 5:00 MST each evening and will be up until January 1, 2010. Let’s gather our gluten-free community together and help Komarnitsky drive more traffic and more donations for Celiac Disease. How cool is that? Let us know if you visit the site!
