Sidney's Special Plate

I'm soooo excited to bring this to you!!!

The good folks at the Parkinson Society Maritime Region (PSMR), a Nova Scotia based organization that serves as the voice of Maritimers living with Parkinson’s Disease, are having a Celebrity Plate Auction in which our title man Sidney has participated. Proceeds from the auction will benefit research, education programs, and support services.

Sid's always willing to help out for a good cause. He's done his part, now the rest is up to you. :)

More than 1.2 million people in Canada and the US live with Parkinson's, for which there is no known cause or cure.

Okay. Let's say - hypothetically - that Sidney Crosby isn't your cup of tea. Good news! Several other celebrities such as Johnny Depp, Tom Hanks, Muhammad Ali (who happens to suffer from the disease), Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Sarah McLaughlin, Harrison Ford, and even Stephen Colbert have also designed and autographed plates that will be auctioned on eBay from April 20 to May 11 as a fundraiser for the PSMR. A total of 58 celebrity plates will be offered. (Click here to see the entire list of celebrity artists.) The only stipulation of the design was that each celebrity was asked to draw a tulip because it is the world-wide symbol of hope for Parkinson's.

The PSMR was nice enough to send me a sneak peek with this really good, clear photo of Sid's plate:

The Saint did a great job with the tulip - look at the PSMR's logo at the bottom of the page - though, I hope he's not planning on quitting his day job, haha!
The auction for Sid's plate goes live on May 4, 2008.

Click on Sid's plate to check out all the auctions and BID, BID, BID!!! And if you don't have enough money to bid on any of the autographed plates, think about purchasing a Parker Bear. They're on sale for just $10.00! Of course you can always give a donation - remember that every little bit helps.

Aren't I a cutie?!
