Shane Bernier World Record Wish

It is rare that we have the opportunity to change someone's world. I had posted about Shane earlier today but in thinking about I did not want to have it buried in a listing.

Shane is a 7 year old cancer patient and he has 1 wish for his birthday on May 30 2007. He wants to break the Guinness world record for the most number of birthday cards received.

What a change his world accomplishment it would be. I don't have a large readership of my blog but I do belong to a number of communities. I am hoping that others will pick up on this wish and either blog or pass it on to others.

The story is here.

[UPDATE]

Thanks to Mike at Ordinary Folk you can see a video of Shane.

Hey Peter! Thought you might like to check out the Shane related comic I launched my new site with :)

I might even create a little birthday card that folks can download, print and send off to him.

I don't want to intentionally spam my web address, but if you click on my name it'll take you to the new site :)
