I talked to her on the phone around 7pm (EST) and she said she’s definitely all for it. She was talking to me about what Sam is doing and what not. She wanted a page for Sam and she mentioned “Sam’s World”. Therefore Sam could post pictures since he’s getting a camera. A blog might be cool for that. I asked a few questions about hosting but didn’t really get a final answer or maybe she wasn’t clear or knew what I meant. Chris, if you could provide free hosting including helping us code it, that would be extremely generous and appreciative. Also I definitely think we need some sort of CMS since they have no idea how to code. Anyway, below is the email from me and her.

Email To Sam’s Parents:
Good Afternoon,

We are trying to get in contact with the legal guardians of Sam. In the wake of the holiday season, we would like to donate a modern website to Sam courtesy of, a community. 10 website designers have come together to work on this project. If you could please get back to us, we would appreciate it. I would just like to mention we are not soliciting anything, we just wanted to do something for charity for the holidays and we noticed Sam’s achievements with his book and his fight to find a cure for IGM Nephropathy.

Thank You,
Christopher William
