I'm not usually one to post 'meme's and contests and that sort of thing, but this one is a little different. I recently learned that former IPM DJ Sara's daughter Zoe was diagnosed with a rare disorder called CDKL5. She’s one of about 200 children on earth with it and very little is known about the affliction.

For whatever reason, The Pepsi Company is giving money to top rated causes each month. With a few minutes and mouse-clicks of your time every day til the end of the month, you can help bump CDKL5 research into the top ten and keep it there, which assures funding from Pepsi.

Please take the time to do this every day. Please tell everyone you know to do the same. This is one of those cases where a “cause” will have a very real effect on very real people – namely Zoe and her parents.

You can vote from your mobile phone: Vote from your mobile phone by texting 102973 to 73774 (PEPSI) and via the web at the link below. Do both every day, each one counts. Vote early, vote often.

This kind of research will help not only Zoe and others with the CDKL5 disorder, but will also help to broaden our understanding of the human genome in general so please give it a thought. It only takes a few clicks, really.
