Dozens of people have donated their birthdays to Charlotte's Helix by pledging donations and social networking and to enroll in DNA studies. The video birthday greetings are coming in from around the world - special thanks to Charlotte's niece, dolled up dogs, Colleen on an amusement park ride, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt for adding a face that everyone knows to the international kaleidoscope of faces and accents we've collected and shared so far. Please send more!
Thank you to for the hundreds of Tweets and likes and comments.
Thanks for the creative ideas for fundraising, big and small, that are coming in.
But mostly, thanks to Charlotte Bevan for lending her name, her charm, her humor, and her very speedy thumbs to this cause. We will not let you down, Charlotte.
