christopher & dana reeve foundation

I don't think most of us know very many people living with paralysis.  But that doesn't diminish the fact that there are a lot of brave people who do it every day.  And for every paralyzed person, there is a team of courageous caretakers.  They deserve all the support they can get.  Check this out:

The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation have put out a 2010 Holiday Gift Guide for People Living with paralysis.  These guys are awesome.  They have thought of all these cool ways to normalize and make life comfortable for people living with paralysis.

So you don't know anyone who can benefit from gifts like these?  The Reeve Foundation is an incredible organization dedicated to curing spinal cord injury by funding innovative research, and improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis through grants, information and advocacy.  You can help them in their work by making a donation directly to the Foundation.  You can also shop for a cure and buy products for which the proceeds will benefit the Reeve Foundation.

And, as per yoozh, you can help raise awareness by becoming a fan on Facebook or following the Reeve Foundation on Twitter.

Look at that, you guys...Superman is still finding ways to save people.
