Match It for Pratchett

Science fiction and fantasy fans were shocked by Terry Pratchett's announcement recently that he's suffering from a rare form of early onset Alzheimer's.

Many of us have been touched personally by this disease. As we age, more and more of us will have to face it ourselves, or watch as people we love become strangers.

Wonderfully, Pratchett announced recently that he is donating half a million pounds, or about a million dollars, to Alzheimer's research, and now we have a chance to help, too. Terry Pratchett's fans have launched a challenge, to "match it for Pratchett," and word is sweeping the blogosphere.

Help spread the word! Link back here, create your own message, donate to the organization in your country.
