The answer is both!
This blog is intended to inspire and motivate, to share and and guide.
This post highlights a recent fundraising initiative from One of my favorite sites "Bunnyblog"
Marissa's Blog is an amazing tool that educates readers on Infantile Spasm Awareness and raises money to help fund the costly treatment. This family has found a medium that they are comfortable with, reflects their family and is successful.
Today I noticed on their blog a new addition to their fundraising efforts: An online commissioned art exhibit. All proceeds go to Marissa's treatment.
