Extraordinary Measures

Posted Jan 08 2010 12:00am


“Don’t Hope For a Miracle. Make One,” is the tagline of CBS films’ upcoming release Extraordinary Measures, starring Brendan Fraser and Harrison Ford. It is inspired by the story of John Crowley, a father who defied conventional wisdom and great odds, and risked his family’s future to pursue a cure for his children’s life- threatening disease.

To celebrate Crowley’s story, we’ve created a wonderful opportunity to get the word about a cause that is close to you, and also possibly win some money for them!

It’s so easy, all you have to do is upload an inspirational video.

· Go to the Inspirational Quilt and click on Upload Your Story

· Once your video is uploaded, you will be entered into the sweepstakes for a chance to designate the charity of your choice to receive $10,000.

· Tell your friends to vote to increase your chances of winning.

Some fantastic videos have been uploaded to the Inspirational Quilt and are already in the running for the $10,000 donation- including the story of Alexandra “Alex” Scott, a young cancer patient who, facing a grim diagnosis, insisted on setting up a lemonade stand to raise money for childhood cancer before succumbing to the disease at age eight. Her stand evolved into a national lemonade stand initiative and foundation which has since raised over $25 million for the cause.
