I really like this project and was honored when the organizers asked me to participate. Now that my charm is finished and ready to ship, I thought I'd update everyone with the latest info.
If you want to participate in this charitable endeavor, there's still time—just barely! They really need your donated charms by the end of this month (September). All you need to create is a little charm of some sort, with or without beads, made with any media, but with something on it that makes it easy to attach to a larger artwork (a handmade art doll).
Please send your donation to:

Thanks so much, everybody! Together we can find a way to detect this insidious disease and save lives.
