Are You Up For A Challenge?

July is going to be MY month! Not only because my birthday is in July but because I have something exciting that will be happening sometime during this month….but that is for a later time.

I have been working on The Faces of Ankylosing Spondylitis since October 8, 2011 and will be coming up on our 6 year anniversary.

Six long and amazing years dedicated to this project, and you all have been so amazing. This project has been honored by the Spondylitis Association of America, it has been recognized globally and so many other wonderful things! But………..

I still haven’t reached my goal, well not my goal but Michael Smith (creator of Spondyville) challenged goal and of course I accepted the challenge.

As of today we have 1788 Faces of AS we are ONLY 912 away from the goal of 2700 Faces!

So as people who live our lives with an invisible disease our goal is to bring awareness, raise funds for our foundations who work hard to raise awareness, funding for research and many other wonderful things.

So I have decided that I am going to combine all these things into one challenge.

I will and agree to donate up to $912.00 to these wonderful organizations. One face and one dollar at a time!

Here is how it will work.

For every person who sends me their photo with or without their story, they will add the organization of THEIR choosing for me to donate one dollar in their honor.

Spondylitis Association of America, National Ankylosing Spondylitis Society, Walk AS One, Arthritis Foundation. ? ? ? ?

You must include the name of the organization in your email when you send your information to me at

I will honor this challenge till we reach 2700 Faces of AS.

I know it doesn’t seem like much but when these organizations are funded and operate by donations EVERY SINGLE DOLLAR COUNTS!


So who is up for the challenge?
