Alek’s Controllable Christmas Lights for Celiac Disease
It’s that time of year again and Alek Komarnitsky has the Christmas light displays all ready to go – all set to raise funds and awareness for Celiac disease-a disease that has affected both his little boys. To date Alek has helped raise over $50,000 for the Center for Celiac Research at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. Here’s a sneak peek, but make sure to visit Alek’s Christmas light website so you can interact (yes, control the lights – kids young and old will love this!) with the holiday displays.
Alek tells us that viewing the Christmas lights via web is also an eco-friendly activity , “While people around the world (157 countries last year) enjoy seeing the lights ON, environmentalists will be happy to know that they can turn the lights OFF with a click of the mouse. Better yet, this is the 7th year I’m using Wind Power and even though that is "clean" energy, I even did a Carbon Offset contribution for the 0.6 Tons of CO2 for the ~MegaWatt-Hour of power consumed – that’s about the same as *one* cross-country airline trip. Finally, by providing viewing via webcam, you don’t need to burn fossil fuels by driving around to see Christmas lights!”
