As you are aware Mikey has been sick for a while now and he and his amazing wife Bec have been staying strong and fighting hard all this time.
I've been told that Mikey has been enjoying watching DVDs and TV and downloaded movies and shows lately and I know he appreciates everyone's messages of love and support so I thought it would be a great idea to combine these things and create and upload some video messages for Mikey.
This means Mikey will still be able to see people who may be too far away to come and visit and he will be able to watch our videos whenever he has the time and energy. We all know how horrible it is to be stuck at home when you're sick - now we can all keep Mikey company and keep his spirits up.
So what do we need you to do?
* record a video for Mikey - it can be any length (30 seconds or 30 minutes, whatever you like) and it can be about anything you want. It might be a video message to say hi and send your love, it could be a clip or video you think Mikey would like, you could get together with a bunch of people to record something. Be creative and feel free to record or create more than one video!
If you have or can find footage of Mikey from anything (eg. bands he was in) it would be fantastic if we could have it!
* contact Karma at firstname.lastname@example.org for the YouTube account name and password
* upload your video/s!
* spread the word to anyone else you know who is friends with Mikey. We'd love to have as many video messages as possible :)
This is something we can all get involved in - all you need is a video camera, a webcam or a phone or camera that can record video. Check out the YouTube website for supported formats here: http://www.google.com/support/youtube/b
