This year's charity is MND Victoria. Motor Neurone Disease is the name given to a group of diseases in which the nerve cells - neurones - controlling the muscles that enable us to move around, speak, breathe and swallow, fail to work normally. With no nerves to activate them,
muscles gradually weaken and waste. This is the disease that took my dad a few weeks ago, after 2 years of suffering. The body slowly wastes away, while the mind is as keen as ever. Right now, there is no known cure or treatment. It affects over 350,000 of the world's population at any one time, and kills over 100,000 every year. In Australia, MND kills one person every day. Quite a few Browncoats have been touched by this disease, and with your help it is hoped that a
cure can be found.

We have two raffles (1 each day) with 3 prize packs going up for grabs on Saturday and another 3 prize packs on Sunday. First prize on each day is an autographed Serenity Poster (either US signed by Summer and Nathan, or German signed by Nathan - depending on the day). The other
prize packs will include a range of Serenity related goodies - autographed items, mini-posters, T-shirts, a Serenity ornament, a Serenity novelization, Kaylee necklaces etc. They'll be drawn each afternoon, so buy early and buy often! :)

We will also be promoting Motor On 2009, a fanatstic fundraising event that will be held in March 2009 - part cocktail party, part dance party, it'll be a night to remember!
