I've been reading Ryan over at Pacing the Panic Room for close to two years now. I love the way he writes, and his photography is amazing. I got hooked when he did a maternity series with his wife, Cole. It's amazing to see how much he wants to change the world, and how motivated he is.
His step-son, LB, has SMS. This is a disease that won't go away, and that will cause him issues through out the rest of his life. Unfortunately, it's a very rare disease, and therefore there isn't a lot of information out there. This past week was his 6th birthday, and in honor of that occasion, Ryan worked over the last year to put together an Album to raise funds for SMS research. The proceeds from Do Fun Stuff go into a fund which will provide grants to grad students who choose to make this disease their area of study. And the music is great for Kids and Adults, so we can enjoy it with our children!
Today, this album launches on Itunes. And all over the blogosphere, people are writing about it. But the best write up at all can be found at PTPR, written by Ryan himself. You can also click the really cut widget below to go to the Do Fun Stuff website.
Please, if you have kids, or just love pop music, here's a way to help and have some enjoyment at the same time. And you never know, you might find a new favorite band!
