Tomorrow begins a busy month of updates to the Lupus Awareness Virtual Art Gallery. First, I would like to thank every one who has supported me on this project. It would not be at all successful if it were not for your contributions.
Second, I would like to remind you that it is not too late to contribute. If you are new to Geeky Pleasures and do not know what the Lupus Awareness Virtual Art Gallery is or why this project is so important to me, allow me to explain. I have Lupus. It is a very difficult disease to live with, especially as it is so misunderstood and it is “invisible.” Quite often, I look fine. However, on the inside of my body, a war is being waged and prisoners of war do not have the Third Geneva Convention to protect them. So earlier this year, I created the art gallery in an effort to raise awareness. For more information on how to contribute, click the clip on the right.
Third, this may have an impact on Geeky Pleasures towards the end of the month. For now, Geeky Pleasures will continue to be updated regularly, while submissions to the art gallery trickle in. However, I except there to be a flood of submissions towards the end of the deadline, as with the first update for World Lupus Day. Unless I find a way to clone myself by the end of this month, I doubt there will be a way for me to keep up with both of them (unless press release submissions and such for Geeky Pleasures experiences a lull). If there is a slow down on posts here, have no fear, Geeky Pleasures will be up to full capacity once again on November 1st. Keeping this in mind, I ask that if you are planning to submit something to the art gallery, please try and not make it last minute. This will help immensely to keep both sites running on a regular schedule.
Thank you all, once again. Your support truly means a lot!
