Even though I’ve turned 50, I’m still a little kid doing the Controllable Christmas Lights for Celiac Disease.
Three live webcams and X10 technology allows web surfers to not only view the live action, but also control 20,000+ lights plus inflate/deflate the giant 15′ Santa Balloon, Santa on skis, in a helicopter, and flying a plane, along with Elmo, Frosty Family, SpongeBob SquarePants, and the Homer Simpson Santa!
The website is totally free (and totally fun) but also raises awareness and funds for charity via optional/voluntary donations – over $80,000 for the Center for Celiac Research. I’ve supported this world-class research organization for almost a decade and even though I just recently found out this summer that the original Celiac diagnosis of my kids was a false positive, I’m still helping them raise awareness and supporting research for an eventual cure.
Along those lines, I’ve entered a $5,000 Christmas Lights contest and anything I win will be donated to charity – here’s a direct link to like/vote for it using Facebook – thanks in advance for your support
Last year, Internet surfers from 149 countries stopped by – Hulk says “kids really enjoy turning everything on & off” as the media reported “Clark Griswold move over” … so surf on by, tell your friends, blog/Facebook/tweet about it, and spread the word.
Merry Christmas and HO-HO-HO!
