Hello and a very warm welcome to my newly relaunched blog. I'm Paul a 40 year old family man from the UK. In this complex, information overload 21st century world, too often we lose sight of what's really important. Here I want to celebrate life, share inspirational stories, throw the spotlight on charities and causes close to my heart. Looking forward to sharing this journey with you all.

Epilepsy awareness - please support Serene's fantastic blog!

One of the key aims of this blog is to highlight the brilliant work being done by others in the blogging community to support the causes that mean the most to them.

Today I want to bring your attention to the fantastic work being done by Serene Low over in Malaysia, who has worked tirelessly for nearly a decade to promote the awareness of epilepsy around the world.


In her words:

"I have been an epilepsy activist for 9 years. It is extremely difficult and challenging for an individual to promote epilepsy awareness single handedly but it is not totally impossible. Through epilepsy awareness work I had come to know of some wonderful and inspiring people whom I look up to and who had opened doors for me to reach out to the public.

Roughly 50 million people worldwide have epilepsy. Epilepsy is 3 times more common than multiple sclerosis and more than 3 times as common as Parkinson's disease and cerebral palsy. One person in 50 will develop epilepsy at some time in their life. One in 20 will have a single epileptic seizure."

Please, please do visit her webpage and show your support- for any blog catalog members out there her user name is shrine32002 and you can find her profile over at  http://www.blogcatalog.com/user/shrine32002

You may have noticed on my side bar now as well as on Serene's page there is a purple ribbon which is part of a twitter based campaign to promote awareness. Please click on it and follow the instructions to show your support.

Also Serene has provided a number of links to various charities and organisations across the world that are  providing much needed support and research into the condition. Please do take a look. I will certainly be including the UK version in my next round of donations to be announced in May.

And Finally....

Please Please Please  do get in touch with details of charities and causes that mean the most to you. 

It would be my absolute pleasure and privilege to promote them here, and wherever possible to donate directly from my online earnings fund as it builds over the coming weeks, months and years.

I really need your help. 

Together we really can make a difference!
