Want to do something good for a good guy and a great cause? Vote for Carl Haislip to be the Energizer Hall of Famer for 2011: www.facebook.com/EnergizerBunny?v=app_141741139208155

Carl Haislip has spastic cerebral palsy and was recognized for his determination to “Keep Going” despite his physical disability.

Carl works for Handycapable as a “HandyTech” and refurbishes computers to get them into the homes of underprivileged families. He does so by laying on his stomach and using a head stick hitting one key at a time to complete his task! He is truly amazing!

Thanks in advance annnnd if you so happen to see someone who deserves it more you can vote for them instead, but Carl's quite a guy!

I have a friend in Coshocton Ohio who has the same condition
his name is Todd and he is in a wheel chair and comunicates by pressing one button at a time on a key board attached to his chair
the keyboard is hooked to a voice synthesiser that speaks for him
he is a great guy who could just stay at home and let others look after him but he insists on being as independent as possible and mentors young children with severe disabilitys

my vote for your friend is assured
Can't Live that Negative Way, Make Room for the Positive Day !
