Blog for FRAXA

People are always asking me how they can help FRAXA. Obviously, we'd all like to be able to raise tons of money for research, but if you're like me, you probably don't have a lot of extra cash, and you probably don't know anyone who does. But just about anyone with a little free time can blog, and you can use a free blog to help FRAXA.

It's fun, and if enough of us join together, it really can make a difference!
